3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint at American Flatbread, as "Brown Mild". Dark clear mahogany, little head though it sticks....maple-oaky-nutty aroma, sweet and lightly herbal...solid nutty sweetish full body, with vague hints of alcohol despite the low gravity...bit watery towardst the finish. Not bad, but weak from this brewpub.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at VTBrewfest - Poured a tannish brown in color with a very small head. Aroma was faint, but definitely of malt and not hops. Flavor matched the aroma; mild maltiness with no hops to speak of. Good, but unimpressive...
