3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a mug, the appearance was a dark amber close to brown sort of color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated appropriately leaving some stringy lace.
The aroma had some sweet nutty crispness sliding into some caramel/toffee malts. A touch of paper/woodiness follows in decently.
The flavor leans to the sweet side bringing in a subtle toastiness to it. A touch of earthiness follows in. Crisp sweet nutty aftertaste and a quick malty sweet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation. ABV felt fine.
Overall, good brown ale for the most part, willing to come back to.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft, Bullfrog Brewery. Pours a clear, dark reddish-brown color; off-white head with patchy lacing. Basic wet malts and floral notes in the aroma. Light-to-medium, watery mouthfeel: toasty grains and wet, tea-like malts; very basic, grainy malt character; not much here. Light, iced tea and wet malt finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A fairly enjoyable brown ale, just a little on the watery end of things. Very basic but pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
10 oz pull from the handpump, at brewpub. Pours a clear brown body with a nice almost one finger creamy beige head with the usual nice retention. Nose is fairly light, with a lightly sweet nutty malt note and distinct centennial hops. The flavor is quite smooth with nutty and toasted malts with a nice hop level up front that leaves a low lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied with a great creamy texture from the handpump. Overall, I’m always willing to try any offering from the handpump where ever I go. This was worth trying.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
this beer was a poor brown ale. No body and off taste (for a brown). Strong hops flavor and no complexity. but it is smooth. Had it as ’blue collar brown’.
