3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 .
