3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark clear reddish brown color with a huge bubbly tan head that slowly recedes before leaving some spotty lace on the way down. Smells of caramel and brown sugar with a hint of tart fruit, earth, roast and butter. The flavor is heavy on the caramel and butterscotch with an earthy hop bite that provides some balance. Medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a creamy bubbly mouthfeel. So far this is the only brew I’ve had where I feel the diacytyl actually adds something to the beer. This is probably my favorite beer from Woodstock, but its still just an average beer.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
a nice light brown color and that’s where the good stuff ends in this beer. a good aroma that is very light with a light nuttiness and caramel. The flavor is very mild with a light maltiness. an uninspired finish with no character.

This was pleasant which is about all I ask of brown ales. Slightly nutty, decent looking, not too sweet.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
beer of the month club selection. Dark brown, tan head which dissipated quickly. Caramel malt aroma. Toasted caramel flavor, sweet, a bit prickly on the tongue. Hint of hop bitterness. Thin palate. Is this top notch, super memorable? No but if it was on tap, I’d consider a second pint as it hits the things I like in a brown.

Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear brown with a beige head. Malty aroma with caramel, nuts and chocolate. Sweet flavor, a bit sugary, with caramel, nutty malt, bread notes (a bit toasty), a sourish touch and a dry finish, a bit metallic. Light-medium-bodied, a bit over-carbonated. So-so.
