12oz single, Riley's

appearance: interesting label - a squirrel with a brown ale in its grasp and cheefing on a cig. poured into an imperial pint glass, nice mahogany body with garnet hues. creamy beige lace and good retention

smell: strong woody and nutty aromas - roasted grain, toasted malt

taste: very nice brown - creamy and very flavorful. woody with distinct cocoa highlights, walnut, toasted sourdough, a splash of coffee, cola. greatly exceeded expectations based on the other upland stuff i have had

mouthfeel: creamy, rich medium body

drinkability: good (569 characters)

This is a damn fine beer pours a beatiful brown with some foam , smells of sweet malt and some caramel. The taste is very similar but incredibly balanced very malty sweet at the beginning but very well balanced, The taste is of oak , malt , hop balance , and caramel in there as well pretty light mouthfeel as well. Medium finish. This one's easy to drink.

Pick it up if you get the chance. (392 characters)

Poured a great brown color with good head and good lacing. Has an excellent scent, a nice maltiness to it. Excellent taste, a wonderful brown ale with great nut flavors, it's well balanced with just a little aftertaste. Goes down well. An excellent nut brown ale, well worth a try if you find yourself in Bloomington, IN. (321 characters)
