Pours blackish coppery red brown with a quickly receding tan head. Aroma is weak but malty. Slightly roasted scents. Taste follows aroma. Weak but great flavor. Palate is thin. But overall a decent beer. This would make a good bridge beer to cross from lite beer into the craft world.

Not bad. Light watery, slightly toasty, mild bitterness, crackery malts. It will do.

Can. Thanks Matt! Thin and watery, but mostly without flaws, only light light metallic. Other than that there are mostly malts with toasted, roasted and light coffeeish flavours. Quite simple and straight-forward but that is what they try to do.

12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 6/22/2015. Pours crystal clear dark reddish brown color with a 2 finger fairly dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, light coffee, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, light herbal/dark fruit, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Okay aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop notes; with poor strength. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, light coffee, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, light herbal, and toasted earthiness. Light herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean flavors with minimal yeast notes in the taste. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/bready, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.7%. Overall this is a nice black and tan style. All around good balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

islay (1712) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2015
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 10-30-15. Pours a clear, reddish brown with tan head. Dark red hue. Good looking beer. Light, simple, inoffensive, beery aroma. Very little of note to the smell. Cracker scent. Basic, lightly roasted flavor. Cracker dryness. Hard for me to generate notes on this one because it’s so bland. Lively in the palate. Light to medium body. Refreshing. Utterly unmemorable. Not of modern quality.

It’s like the watered-down version of a dark, non-mass-produced beer. It’s aroma is not really too pleasant, its mouthfeel isn’t great, and there aren’t any intense flavors. It doesn’t make me gag, though, so it is, at least, drinkable. Did you expect anything more? If you care enough to rate beer at all, probably not.

From 12 oz can served in pint glass. Big three finger tan head reduces to a thin cap after several minutes. Reasonable amount of lacing. Aroma is on the weaker side but comsists of roasted malts. Taste is lights but smooth with light notes of roasted malts, toast maybe some creamy vanilla like notes. Very smooth finish. Light to medium bodied beer with light to average carbonation. Overall very enjoyable beer. Obviously nothing particularly specially but a very good beer for the money. A good easy drinking well priced staple dark beer.
