3.53/5 rDev +0.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
A - clear caramel amber with a large, thick, off white, brownish head that has great retention
S - grainy, some faint caramel, some very faint toffee
T - grainy up front with a faint bitterness followed by some caramel, a light nuttiness, and some toffee and then it finishes with a faint coffee-like roasted malt note
M - medium bodied though at times thin, well carbonated, a bit dry
This isn't a bad beer by any means, but it does have a few notes that detract from the overall experience. The grainy notes are too forward with too little malt backbone to correct it. The overall flavor is there but it's a bit subdued. The mouthfeel is also a bit light. If you like brown ales you'll probably still want to give it a try because at 4% this could be a new session ale for you.
