A - Drank outside, straight from bottle. Love the bottle label however.
S - Wasn't crazy about the nose. Had a bit of hop aroma as well as some grainy malt scent, however I also got an off-putting sourness that made me a bit wary of trying this beer. Perhaps had something to do with having it from the bottle?
T - Luckily, this beer impressed me. A nice malty start with some faintly sweet and caramel flavor leading smoothly into a slightly bitter and clean finish. Nice balance and some complexity.
MF - Medium-bodied, carbonation was ample, and had a smooth feel with a good drinkability. The 6.5% ABV is hidden a touch.
O - Nice brown ale with a an equally good taste and mouthfeel. Wouldn't hesitate to purchase a six. Went well on a chilly November night but I could see this working year round.
