This beer is what turned me over to stouts. While it isn't a stout, it's just dark enough to get you interested in darker beers. At least, that was the case with me. I have found that this is a good middle ground beer for my friends and me. They like light beer, while I drink stouts now. Bad Penny is so yummy, I don't see why anyone wouldn't like it.

Being in Raleigh, I can get this beer fresh both from local taps, as well as from the bottle. On Tap is not surprisingly smoother than the bottle.

Not too rich
Not light
A bit of hopes, but not too bitter.

All in all, a very good American Brown ale!

If you're in NC, Have a Bad Penny on tap. I think you'll enjoy it.
(Sweet Jose and Old Town are also great local Brown Ale's)

Cheers!

Poured out of a bottle into a mason jar. Disappointing brown, tepidly see-through, with some good sticking power of the offwhite head. Smell is not overpowering - don't get much of anything. Taste is mild, malty, very drinkable. A good session brown.
