Bottle What a nice beer,from a great brewery Malty and hoppy without either taking over. Very slightly sweet. Nice cloudy, brown appearance in the glass. Yet another winner from Bellís.

I will keep this simple...the best american brown hands down.... It has hints of caramel and a faint smokiness. Oh so smooth and malty finish.

Pours a chestnut brown color with darker shades with a good frothy white head. The aroma is nutty and malty, accompanied by caramel and tree bark. The flavor is also very malty and oaty, wtih a nutty caramel finish, along with some cola and a slight presence of hops.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours out a hazy deep amber/brown color with a great frothy head. Aroma is bitter and sharp with sweet notes and some what funky. The flavor I get is bitter nuts with faint caramel. Alcohol evident and finishes dry. Seems to be a simple one dimensional brew. I donít understand it, I was expecting a much better product. I will try it again and re-rate in a few weeks to if I got a bad bottle or I may be off tonight.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle. Subtle aroma, pours brown in color, about what you would expect from an iced tea. A thick head that settles and leaves just a slight foam at the top. Tastes íroastedí, and leaves a somewhat dry feeling aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark, transparent brown. Slight but lasting foamy white head. Small nose of coco and malt. Malty, chocolate, otherwise simple flavor. A good brown ale, but not a great one. Mouth feel is too carbonated, and kills any complexity that this might have. I could drink several of these, but I thought this would be better.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer pours a bright copper color with a foamy, off-white head. It has nice head retention and lacing. It has a light citrus hoppy aroma with a hint of toasted malts. The taste is malty and bready with a nice hop finish. Very enjoyable and refreshing. It is lightly carbonated, the body leaves a bit to be desired, but itís still quite delicious. I would serve this with a mushroom swiss burger or a meatloaf-yum!
