Thanks to Hessian257 for this one!

A murky red/brown body produces a healthy tan head - good looking sticky lace.

Sort of a mellow caramel/toffee thing going on with marshmallow and creamed corn... a bit of toasted grain keeps the sweetness in check.

The hops seem to surface a little bit on the palate - citrus and pine fade into that semisweet malt profile. This beer definitely defies style boundaries but I'm not sure they accomplished what they were going for. It's like an ESB, a brown ale and an IPA had a wee little babe and named it Over Ale.

That said, I'll have no trouble finishing this one. It's good for what it is.

Can from Oak Tree, A nice brown, with a little touch of sour finish. Above average mouthfeel. Light brown colour, nicely hoppy.Malty aroma.very good drinkability although not a style I would keep a six pack in the fridge. Toasted malt, and caramel. A tad syrupy.
