Pours a cola brown with decent clarity. Aroma of toasted malt and caramel, a hint of bready grain. The taste was malt, faint roast, hop and spent grains. Just a touch of what might be smoke rising to the surface. Thin body but carbonated alright. Overall this is a decent brown nothing special.

Label- I hate labels that just state the name of the beer. C'Mon Saugatuck BR! This beer deserves more! Really struggled here.

Taste- I was not expecting much from this brown ale, but wasn't pleasantly suprised! One of the better brown ales I've had. Great flavor and great malt taste that lingered.

Overall- if you you like brown ales this is a must try. Label blows, but get over it and drink this beer. Liver likey and will continue to enjoy this one for months to come. Well done Saugatuck.
