I grabbed a sixer of these cans up in Yellowstone. Poured it into a pint glass. It looks amazing. Brown to amber on the edges with a thick, dirty-white head.
A fragrant beer. A good biscuit, yeasty, wet malt smell. A really solid smelling brown ale.
The taste is initially watery, followed by a mild barley flavor. A real let down from how it looked and smelled.
It feels like an average ale; moderate carbonation and normal texture.
Besides the taste, this beer is fine. Too bad that taste is central to a good beer. It was not undrinkable by any means, but it tasted like a watered down brown ale. Maybe grab some for an athletic drinking event since it goes down easy.

Not bad, but a bit watery tasting. No obvious aroma, slight malty taste with tiny hint of spice. (K)
