Appearance: Dark nutty brown with good lacing.

Smell: Excellent mixture of lemon and caramel. Almost like a lemon pie.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Coffee and pine; again, another excellent and unusual combination. Crisp feel, but a tad thin.

Overall: I really like what this beer has going for it in how unusual it is It's definitely an odd mixture of a pilsener and a piney stout in the form of a brown ale. My complaint would be that there is no one thing that really stands out.

Pour brown but on the lighter side with a 1 finger light tan head

Huge Carmel malt in the nose with a slight. creamy sweetness to it and a hint of nuttiness near the end. Slight spicy hops.

Sweetness is much more subtle in the taste. Nuttiness is more prevelent in the taste

Mouthfeel is on the lighter side for a brown but still has a nice body to it
