look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Dark brown, opaque. Little to no head on it. May have sat at the bar too long.

S: Mildly sweet and a toch of caramel.

T: Lots of malt, and a huge amount of butterscotch.

M: Kind of flat. Medium in body. Nothing remarakable.

O: It was okay. More along the lines of a nut brown ale with malt for milre. A touch sour and a big butterscotch sweetness.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A- Transparent caramel colored body with some cola-like bubbles. Fizzy tan head that lingers around for a while.

S- Some caramel malt, slight nutty aroma, some piney hop aroma too.

T- Almost a cross between a brown ale and an amber. Caramel malts give way to some toasted malts with the nuttiness coming through. Slight bitter hop taste towards the end.

M- Medium-high carbonation, very bubbly, medium bodied and smooth.

O-Pretty good offering. More like an amber/brown hybrid.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Dark amber color with a hint of copper.

Smell: Nothing special about it. Similar smell to Budweiser, with a hint of nut

Taste: Very tasteful with several spices, but the nut taste is the dominant trait.

Mouthfeel:A mixture between watery and syrupy. Not very good.

Overall While thus beer has nothing about it that standouts , if you're looking for new beers to try I'd give it a go.
