On tap at Appalachian in Lititz, PA. Pours a deep amber-brown. A lot of caramel and malt going on here, with just a bit of hops at the finish. Quite enjoyable. My favorite of the ABC offerings.

Pours a clear brown, light tan lacing for a head.

Smells of roasted biscuity malts and hints of caramel.

Roasted biscuit malt flavor with caramel and something like a mesquite smokiness.

Medium body with a light fizzle of carbonation.

A fairly decent brown ale with a nice unique element in the flavor, the mesquite. That makes it worth trying in my opinion, but then it loses points with a disappointing body. Probably a divisive beer for brown ale fans. Worth a go.

Not sure I've ever rated anything straight across the board like this. I thought this was a decent brown ale.

A: a little lighter -auburn to maybe even slightly amber, but with a nice sustaining head and decent lacing
S: toasted malts, some nuttiness, even a little coffee
T: typical brown front, an English kind of yeast taste and bitterness. The hop intensity is a little above normal, but that works. Carbonation adds to feel, which is better than the appearance indicates.
O: a decent little brown ale. Not gonna immediately grab a six-pack, but would grab a pint on a future trip.
