3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of finely sized clear colored bubbles that were fully diminished and left behind a transparent softly carbonated light brown colored body and a poor lacing. The mild aroma was nutty. The crisp smooth mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish nutty aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of hops and brown malt. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

Seemed very to style for me. Nose has sweet toasted nuts, caramel, light roast, a hint of sugars. Pours brown with not much in the way of head except a little foam islands up top. Flavors of toasted nuts, caramel, I got a hint of vanilla, and a little bit of residual sugars. Light hop backing in the finish.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2007 Sampled draught at Wild River Pub, Grant’s Pass
Amber mahogany color with light lacing. Nose of wet caramel. Flavor is tangy & fruity, buttery & rich. Nice body but a bit of diacetyl.The Bottle really sucked of this, 4-2-3-1-6, but the draft rating should stand.

On tap at the Wild River Brewpub. Pours a dark copper with a smooth off-white head. Buttery sweet caramel nose with a light toastiness. This was a very smooth light bodied beer, but had a nice caramel sweetness up front that was balanced out very nicely with a very lightly hopped finish.

Mahogany with spotty head and lacing. Caramel and some roast in the nose. Walnuts and toffee. Bitter hops come out in the flavors with more caramel and roasted malts. Not as nutty with some alcohol apparent. Sticky palate with a good malt finish.

Bottle: True brown coloe with a small head and no real lacing to speak of. Aroma is fruity and sweet. The taste is more fruity than I had expected, but a nice amount of caramel and nuttiness smooth it out. Very light and easy to drink. Thanks Leah!

What? Low in calories??? What’s that all about? This was a very tasty albeit, light bodied beer. Some nice roastiness in the malts and some chewy nuttiness, great caramel and just a hint of chocolate.
