Pours a clean copper color with a light tan head. In the aroma, s a faint sweet chocolate roast. In the taste, a faint and thin taste of a sweet chocolate roast. A small bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry chocolate in the aftertaste. Does not not look brown, focused on chocolate, however faint and watery, eh!

3.06/5  rDev -15.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

12 oz bottle at fridge temp poured into a snifter.

Pours out a fairly clear brown almost deep red color. Decent looking off white head from the pour that holds a nice layer. Spotty lace.

Weak aroma. Fruity esters with almost a mineral lager thing going on. Don't really get any of that nutty malt I get in the taste.

The taste is mostly sweet nutty malt, some biscuit, with the same fruity and mineral esters found in the aroma. Hints of brown sugar. Actually not as terrible of a taste as the aroma suggested, still nothing to write home about.

Light bodied, bitey carbonation.

Good drinkability is really all this beer has going for it. Not something to seek out.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

One of my new favorite beers.
A. Light/golden brown
S. nuts, hazelnut, sweet malts
T. Just like it smells
M. More carbonated than ou average brown.
O. Not your typical viscous American brown, but lighter in body which make this beer extremely sessionable. The malt and nutty flavor make a perfect fall beer.
