12oz. bottle poured into a snifter.
(A)- Pours a burnt sienna brown color. Some tan froth.

(T)- A bit of a honey and nutty sweetness to it overall.
(M)- A mellow carbonation level. Quite sweet overall with a mellow nuttiness.

This is a brown that has been very well done. Living in Wisconsin makes it hard to find, thankfully Minnesota is just an hour away. Worth the drive to pick up a few cases of this beer. Caramel and chocolate with a nice malt flavor that has me wanting more and more. It feels a little grainy in the mouth, but has a great finish, not to bitter.

Thanks to Tom for sending me this one.
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Founders snifter.
A - pours a clean, clear medium brown with a finger and a half of creamy light khaki head.
S - malty, nutty, slight sweet, slightly caramel.
T - toasty with a slightly nutty sweet combintion. Very tasty for a brown ale. Fairly malty but not overly sweet. Sweet bread. A slight drying affect on the palate, most likely from some biscuit malts.
M - medium to medium light bodied. Slightly creamy and dry at the same time.
D - easy drinking for me. Modest ABV and a great taste makes this a fntastic drink on a cool Ohio evening.
Overall, a beer I am surprisingly digging. Brown Ales aren't the most sexy beer of all times, but this one comes across with a fantastic mix of sweet, malt, bread and grain to make an exceptional beer.

Poured from the bottle into a standard pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a cloudy brown with a half finger of off white head that fades to a ring around the pour.
Smell: Lots of dark fruit with some brown sugar and slightly sweet grain. Definitely a malt forward beer.
Taste: The taste doesn't live up to the smell if you ask me. The bitterness is a bit too strong and overpowers the sweeter notes. There is a slightly tart dark fruit note in the background.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with large bubbles and a dry finish.
Overall: This one was a bit too bitter for me. Smells quite nice, but I don't think I'd look this way again if I want a brown.
