First had: on tap at Captain Lawrence, Elmsford, NY

Woody brown pour, slightly hazy, with a ringlet of white bubbles for a head; dots of lacing on the glass. Nutty aroma, roasted malts and toasted grains, some leafy and earthy hop notes, perhaps more pronounced than your average brown ale. Sweet bready malts in the taste, slightly roasty, caramel, toasted grains, leafy hops give a drying bitterness in the finish. It's a brown ale. Medium body, well-balanced and drinkable for the style.

On tap at Delta Grill, NYC. Pretty clear overall, nice rich brown color, with a good sized white head. Retention is also good, decent lacing sticks to the glass. Standard aroma is mostly bready malt, nothing profound or overly rich, a little toasty and nutty. Flavor is very much the same, little in the way of hops, maybe a touch of grassy bitterness in the drying finish, light chewy malt, a slight mineral/metallic aspect I found unappealing.

Carbonation and body both medium, easy to drink, but not at all exceptional for me. Not the most exciting style to begin with but the combination of the mineral note with a somewhat boring malt character made this one ultimately forgettable.
