2.58/5  rDev -23%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Had this at the Downtown location. Received in a pint glass.

4.0 A: Clear amber brown color. Small beige head that leaves glass covering lacing.

2.5 S: Really unexciting. Not really any nuttiness, too much roastiness, but sufficiently toasty. Herbal and citrusy hops, but not hugely hoppy.

2.5 T: Overly roasty without being toasty enough. Roast yields a bitter burnt astringency. No nut flavor and light herbal hops.

2.5 M: Medium body. A bit overcarbonated which makes it a bit bity. Not creamy.

2.5 D: Not a great brew.

Serving type: on-tap

A: Pours a clear ruby-brown with a creamy beige head.

S: The aroma is a bit weak, but there are some nice flavors in there. It's mostly nutty malt with some caramel and a light floral note.

T: The beer packs a lot of flavor for the abv. It's rich and lightly sweet. There's lots more nutty caramel coming from the malt. Good, mild bitter note in the finish.

M: Creamy and full.

O: Good stuff. This is a very nice, sessionable brown ale. I wasn't expecting much, here, but I'm a fan of this beer.

Pours with a thin lace and little to no head. The colow was a nice reddish amber. Hops were 1st on the nose and 1st on the tongue. I expecteda bit more malt. I thought it was a little thin but definitely one of the more drinkable beers they offer. Go ahead and try thins one

Dark reddish brown, clear and crisp to the setting sun that’s blinding me thru the window. Lightly foamy head. Rich malty aroma and likewise, the swallow is rich and malty ... little to no nuttiness or bitterness edge here, unfortunately. This is the "big and rich" of beers ... malt, malt, malt. But it’s good. (#2794, 4/12/2007)

On tap at Red Rock Salt Lake City, UT. Pours with a one-finger cream head, goes slowly leaving a thin layer and a good lace. Clear amber color. Light carbonation, medium body. Hoppy nose. Starts hoppy malts in background, no sweetness, hoppy finish with lingering aftertaste. $3.95 for a 16oz. glass.

This beer was an amber brown color with a nice coat of head over the beer. The color is just a bit light for my liking. The nose was caramel laced coffee with some good roasted qualities, though a bit weak. The beer tasted good, with the caramel and coffee being balanced out with a nice piney hop on the finish. The feel was moderate to thick, with a bit of a creamy texture as well. Overall, a nicely balanced beer that was easy to drink and got me to buy a whole pint after my sampler.
