Malt forward brown ale with well rounded flavors. Mouthfeel is thicker then would expect just basing it off the look. Solid brown ale.

It pours a hazy orange in color with almost no head. The nose is malty sweet, with a trace of hop bite to finish. It’s non-offensive, but does possess a tinny malty finish with slight medicinal notes. As a session strength beer, the body was relatively light and very drinkable. Admittedly, this beer was probably six months old and no longer in its intended state, but still, this is a brew with an identity problem.

While it’s not lousy – I had a couple of them to be sure – it certainly isn’t any of the things indicated by the little graphic chart or the label. It would probably more closely resemble a märzen or Vienna style, if it were a lager (which it may well have been), but it’s certainly not what the label implies.

I don't get what the gold part of this brown ale is. It looks brown with a current or red running through it. Aroma was typical unexceptional brown ale wood and malt.

Taste, a mild brown, it was smooth. No hops, probably comes close to fitting that lame traditional 4% session definition or whatnot. Doesn't tire the palate out with much heft, alcohol or hops. Usual stuff, nutty, caramel, toffee in here.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.

Pours a copper brown color, fairly light. Very little initial white foam, with quick dissipation. Smell is lightly nutty, hints of caramel.

Taste is lightl sweet, barely crosses to sour but holds. Clean, little carbonation. Coffee and nut notes.

Overall a decent brown brew.
