4.08/5  rDev +19.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 5

Appearance was dark brown with tinges of honey at the edges with a thin white head that dissipated rather quickly. Didn't look like much at first look.

Smell was somewhat like a light aroma emanating from a bottle of maple syrup and a bit of nuttiness. Apart from making me crave pancakes - it was very nice.

Taste is of a light maple sweetness mixed with a bit of roasted nuttiness. Can definitely taste some toasted malt. The more I drank it, the more the maple syrupiness moved to the background and the light nuttiness came out. It was a very nice blend of flavors although it was all on the light end. Not really a robust flavor profile but that's a good thing sometimes. I was hoping for something big here, judging by the label.

Mouthfeel is smooth. Nothing else jumps out to mind either good or bad. So it gets an average score.

Drinkability was excellent. I kept thinking to myself, "This beer isn't even that good". And in a few minutes, I had polished off the bottle without knowing it. That light flavor contributes to the huge drinkability. I'll definitely pick up some more bottles of this when I'm in the mood for something maple-flavored.

Happy hour at my house! However it comes with one caveat; you can't come! Only I, DoubleJ, can drink this Colorado mountain town brown ale, and there's 12 ounces. On to the beer:

I'm not sure if this is a brown ale or an orange amber ale. Okay, brown enough. On top is a short creamy head which yields spots of lace around the glass. The beer has a nutty aroma, a kiss of dry toffee, and more nuttiness.

The overall flavor is respectable while being easy to drink. Still a nutty forward brown ale, but with a little extra overall sweetness. Hazelnut, toffee, a very light hop bitterness, all along the flavored tasted. The beer is light bodied with soft carbonation, and a lingering nuttiness in the aftertaste.

Respect to Idaho Springs for this mountain town brown. It does the job of being flavorful and drinkable. Give this to a Newcastle Brown Ale lover.

This is a clear, chestnut brown beer. The head is fizzy and a bit thin. Nice malty, nutty scent. I didn't get much maple in the aroma, but there is a pleasant toast smell. A bit more maple comes out in the flavor. Semi sweet and malty. Medium in body. This is a better than average, enjoyable brew.
