5oz on tap at the brewpub. Hazy red brown color. Thin off-white head, leaving great ropes of lace. Smooth, kind of soft/crisp lighter carbonation. Mild slick finish. Nice toasty and nutty malt. Some chocolate. Touch of fruitiness. Mild to moderate spicy-type hop bitterness. Mild to moderate sweet, good bit of dryness. Solid nut brown ale. But a bit more spicy and rough than I’d like in bigger swigs.

Draft at the source. Cloudy amber color. Cocoa aroma. Taste has peanuts and cocoa. OK.

Average brown ale. Not much nose to speak of. Faint malt, but I don’t get much else. Taste is moderately sweet. A little thinner than I’d expect for a brown. I confess, I’m having trouble fully appreciating this brewery. I applaud the effort to offer a broad assortment of styles and also appeal to local tastes. Perhaps I’ve been spoiled by the California craft brew market.

Clear, medium-dark amber, thin rim head, small clumps of lace. Taste is over-balanced on the sweet malt side - malt enters, grows sweeter in the palate, finishing with nary a trace of bitters (or carbonation). Drinkable, but very average.

Draft to taster at ZwanzigZ. Looks good for the style; a cloudy orangish brown with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes malty and nutty with a solid mouthfeel. A decent example of the style.

Tap at brewery. Very light caramel malt aroma. Slightly hazy amber with a small off-white head. Nutty malt and light grassy hops flavor. LIght body, soft carbonation.

ContemplateBeer (1926) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Aroma of some almonds, toffee, caramel and light resin. Appearance is copper with bone head. Flavor is toasty and nutty with a touch of malty sweetness. Palate is light, slick and soft. Well done for the style.

Patrickctenchi (5726) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Tap at source: Deep amber with only a small ring of head. Scent is malt, caramel... Taste is moderately sweet.....not overly nutty. A good flavour, but no real "hook" to it.... Just a solid, decent beer.

Tap. Caramel malt aroma. Cloudy amber color with small head. Sweet buttery caramel malt flavor with a mildly bitter herbal hops finish. Pretty good .
