UPDATED: MAY 4, 2016 My experience is limited in brown ales, but this one is good. I could see myself enjoying drinking one of these in the fall during a nice bonfire. It’s good.

Draft at Mad Mex in Pittsburgh. This was okay, not to bad on all accounts. A nice and easy brown that goes down easy and tasty.

Industry tap. Dark like a yuengy. Nice brown beer smell. Comes across like a milder stout with just a tad of medicinal bitterness. A hair of co2 in there, but not much. Perhaps a little rude on the finish.

bottle to snifter. poured a medium cola brown color with off white head. the aroma is a mix of medium roasted malts and caramel. also got hints of coffee and chocolate. nothing surprising on that. the flavor though was a little different I thought for a basic brown ale. not bad not great just good. decent brown ale flavor nice roasted malts with the coffee and chocolate hints and then some nice hop action on the back end. overall decent and drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a very dark red with a full and long lasting white head. The aroma has earthy malts, coffee, nuts, and caramel. The taste is still malty and pretty close to the nose. There is caramel, coffee, earthy, and some mild fruity flavors. The aftertaste is quite short and is a caramel and coffee carbonation. Medium bodied and average in both texture and carbonation. Not bad, but kind of boring.

355ml bottle. This was tasted completely blind with 4 other brown ales (bells, lazy magnolia, arcadia, atg all of different freshness levels). This came in 2nd but it has some serious flaws, it is far from a great beer. 2-16 i believe was on the bottom of the bottle. Aroma: Paper nut, peanut butter, freezer burned bread. Appearance Clear, soda-like amber. Flavor: OXIDIZED (!), caramel, nut, sprouted bread. Body: Watery + semi sweet. What the fuck, new to market beer and it is oxidized?
