One pint can served in tumbler glass. Pours a clear ruby color with a small, fizzy, light-brown head, good lacing. Aroma is caramel, roasted and toasted malts, smoke, and a small amount of earthy hops. Flavor is caramel malts, wood, nutty, and grassy hops. Mouthfeel is medium to light, dry, and just a touch of bitterness at the finish. Decent beer, nothing special but drinkable.

4 pack picked up from the brewery for $8.99 poured into a mug.

Appearance (3): Clear, ruby brown with two fingers of light cream head. Foam reduces to a patchy layer. Minimal lacing.

Smell (2.5): Grains and light milk chocolate.

Taste (3.5): Milky and light chocolate without much else going on. Very mellow with a bit of sweetness in the middle and a lingering chocolate and maybe pine. The aftertaste is the best part of this beer which doesn't have much else to offer.

Mouthfeel (3): Light to medium bodied and medium carbonation. Creamy but light mouthfeel with a bit of slickness.

Overall (2.5): Not much to it, and pretty watery. Surprisingly 6% as it tastes moe like 4%.

Serving type: can

Poured from a 16oz can to a Dogfish Head Snifter.

Color: Dark amber with a tan head.

Smell: Bread, earthy hops and caramel malts.

Taste: Same as the aroma.

Mouthfeel: Medium low carbonation, smoth with a dry finish.

Overall: A decent brew just too bready for my taste. Maybe if it was less bready and more hoppy or citrus. Cheers.

Much thanks to Hawks10 for the can!

A - Dark brown, ruby hues, and a half finger almost soda like head.

S - After an aggressive pour I'm really not getting much from this. Somewhat nutty and roasted malts, but really lacking in this department.

T - Much better than the nose. Almonds, a little chocolate, roasted malts, and a little grainy.

M - Very easy to drink, one of it's best qualities.

O - I really enjoy drinking this brown ale but in the flavor profile, specifically the nose, I'm not getting much. Enjoyed this one but not something I'd seek again.
