3.28/5 rDev -15.9%
16 oz can poured into a shaped pint glass.
Mahogany with 3 fingers of creamy, off-white head. Good retention leaves behind decent rings of lacing. Really good clarity with low carbonation.
Caramel, bread and candy sugars. Hints of nuts and brown sugar.
Light on the palate. Caramel, brown bread and a dose of candy sugar. Light nuttiness with a touch of brown sugar. Just a hint of piney bitterness on the finish.
Medium-full bodied, silky and smooth.
A little bland in the flavor arena, but very easy drinking.

Poured from a sixteen ounce can.
Pours chestnut brown, good 1/4 inch white foam. Fluffy on top. Malty caramel nose. Vanilla too. Rich malty refreshing taste. Light bitter hop in the close. Subtle balanced sweetness. Halfway between a pale and a brown. Flavorful. Really good.

Ruby caramel tinted mahogany brown body with a fine bubbled cream colored head, nice textured lacing around the sides of my glass. Aroma has some chlorophyll green quality mild citrus leafy tobacco notes, with caramel malt backbone riding thru with a quality bready maltiness. That's where Sixpoint ales win it's there malts they never forget that the hop show is nothing without the base malt, flavor here screams that with a nice bitter hopped up brown ale still able to show off a complex malt base. Semi bitter finish medium to light bodied nothing cloying or holding me back from another drink gravity did all the work, damn where did the beer go...drinkability is insane I want a whole four pack. Damn good balanced but hoppier neo brown ale.

A - dark caramel amber with a large, thick, dense, brownish head that has great retention
S - caramel, faintly nutty, citrusy
T - caramel, big citrusy hop character, mild piny bitterness, an underlying nuttiness
M - medium bodied, well carbonated
This is really a nice beer. It has the hallmarks of a traditional brown ale with big caramel notes and a faint nuttiness. This beer, however, brings a big hop punch with an intense citrus character and solid, balanced bitterness. This is definitely worth a try.

A: Dark brown in color, pretty clear. Pours with a 1/4-inch eggshell head that dissipates quickly, but leaves some lacing on the way down.
S: Full malt aroma. A slight hint of toffee and nuts with just the tiniest bit of hops.
T: The malt from the nose is big up front, like a traditional brown ale. Hints of chocolate. Halfway down, the hops kick in and finish out the flavor.
M: Creamy on the tongue, but finishes a bit prickly and dry.
O: A really interesting take on a brown ale. The hop flavoring — and where it kicks in — makes this a surprisingly refreshing darker brew. The transition between the malts up front and hops in the back is a bit weird, and really the only downside to the flavor combination. It was a really smart move by Sixpoint to release this when they did, as the beer is a great segue from lighter, refreshing summer beers to the Märzens/Oktoberfests and pumpkin ales of the fall.
