2.78/5  rDev -25.1%
look: 5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.75

Served from bottle at ~45F

Appearance- murky, translucent brown with a thin beige head

Aroma- all malt. Dark chocolate and caramel

Flavor- the dominating flavor is the sweetness. To me it overrides all other flavors that are trying to come out. Some chocolate roastiness comes out towards the end, but the overall cloyingness makes it almost unpalatable.

Mouthfeel- medium to medium-heavy. The overall sweetness led me to the heavy. Carbonation seems appropriate

Overall- Although brown ales should be malty, this one misses the mark entirely. To me, it is too sweet and because of it, I missed the subtle malty nuances that a traditional English brown has.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

I have fond memories of Madison. ...That doesn't have any bearing here, I'm just sayin'. Anyway, this stuff pours a surprisingly swampy sienna topped by a finger of lightly-sandy off-white foam. The nose comprises lightly-toasted wheat bread, honey, oats, a sprinkle of dirt, and a vague notion of even vaguer fruits wafting in the breeze somehow, as though they were spirits of their former, earthly selves. The taste brings in more of the same, that odd fruit sensation remaining, but even more ephemeral, like the memory of the above description. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a decent little brown ale, nothing to write home about, and, unfortunately, with things like Moose Drool and Sam Smith out there, probably nothing I'm likely to see again (though I wouldn't shun it if handed to me somewhere).
