3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma has a roasted malty, coffee, carmel scent. Very dark brownish red color clear with mild carbonation nice tan head that last awhile leaving some lacing. Taste of roasted malt with a coffee, chocolate flavor that leave a Carmel flavor on the tounge. Kind of a light brown ale was very thin. Not bad just missing some fullness.

Surprisingly nutty, with a slightly woody aroma. Certainly a good beer, but not my favorite.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium frothy tan head over clear rusty brown ale with ruby highlights. Smells like brown -- earthy chocolate and toffee, faint grass. Light roast taste up front to dark caramel to cocoa, leaves just a little hop tang in the finish. Definitely on the malty side. Medium palate, coats the mouth but easy to drink.

roasted malt/caramel nose. very nice looking in glass(excellant clarity) they roasted the malt just right, gives a hint of dark roasted malt but not over-bearing. very long, clean finish. damn good brown ale. finally available in illinios(from what i hear exclusively at binny’s)
