3.85/5 rDev +2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
First had: on tap at their brewery
Dark brown pour, moderately hazy, with a small white head that displayed moderate retention and lacing. Light aroma, nutty, sweet malts and caramel, light hoppy notes. Pretty nice taste for such a low alcohol beer, caramel and toffee, moderately nutty, herbal and somewhat tea-like hops for a nice earthy dry finish. Fairly light bodied, but still nice and flavorful for such a beer, and quite drinkable overall.
Serving type: on-tap

Served in 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance – Served a medium brown colored body with a light tan head. The head faded fast giving way to very little lacing.
Smell - The nose is of light roasted malt mixed with a bit of caramel sweetness.
Taste – The taste was of dark bread and lightly roasted malt flavor with some caramel sweetness. There were hints of nuttiness mixed in with the taste as well.
Mouthfeel –A medium bodied beer with a moderate level of carbonation. While only a medium bodied brew, with it only being 3.7 % abv, it is much creamier then would be anticipated, quite nice for its lightness.
Overall – This is a very drinkable beer. Lighter in abv, but with good taste and actual quite a surprising feel to it.

Darkest brown body, creamy light-colored head. Good retention. Laces well.
Molasses, wort sugars, dark bread.
Sweet brown bread, burnt sugar, earthy tones. Very u-nutty. Slight tinniness. Weak in overall flavor.
Cask offering yields some smoothness to an otherwise thin body. Still has some chew. Carb is a bit low on this system. The feel is suffering.
An average brown with its own unique character. Fun to revisit. That's about it.
