16 oz can poured into a pint glass.
This beer has a dark brown color body with a thin tan head. The smell has a roasty malt and hop to it smell to it. The taste has a maltness upfront and then a nice hop backbone. The hop very nice for a brown ale. Mouthfeel is smooth and overall very tasty for a brown ale.

3.53/5  rDev -9.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass.

Real good head formation off the pour on this. Light tan head. Creamy, somewhat together with lots of retention and staying power. Body is a deep dark redish brown color with not much ability to see through it.

Bouquet on this is neutral for a brown ale. Malt action not so much, sugar sweetness or nuts, no. But there is a distinct aromatic hop on here, something akin to a mellow pine which seems to make a woody character nicely to a brown ale.

Taste is very light bodied, with a simple feel. Much of the flavor is in the aftertaste as to the mid palate, and very subtle. Light chocolate, light malts and a lingering mild hop astringency. Body makes with the lightness also, almost wet but luckily not too bad.

Overall an easy drinking brown, with some light flavors. Something in my gut tells me this on tap or nitro would make it sing.

Serving type: can
