look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Bottled on: 08/26/2013.

Appearance: Pours a light brown body, good clarity, with a small, short-lived, white head.

Smell: Toasted breadcrusts licked with light-colored caramel and honey with cooked fruit compote and faintest, merest hint of hops.

Taste: Sweetish taste of toasted malts, with a caramel bent, and, perhaps, some perceived honey. Lightly estery, with hints of golden raisin, apple. Very restrained hop profile with a low, low bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It's definitely a light, easy-drinking brown ale. I'm down for that, but, anyone looking for high hopping or a thicker, heavier brown might do best to look elsewhere.

Overall, a very nice Brown Ale. The honey taste is very slight, which I think is actually a good thing, or else the beer would probably be just too sweet. There's also a nice nuttiness, which I would expect for a Brown Ale. The mouth feel is a bit lighter than I expected and there's a slight bit of pleasant carbonation.

3.59/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Serving type: On-tap

Appearance: That of your standard brown ale, not a lot of head on it and has a medium brown color.

Smell: Sweet but no distinguishable aroma.

Taste: Exactly what you expect from a brown ale. A malty, not hoppy, sweet flavor.

Mouthfeel: That great taste that's almost like a better, cleaner New Castle sticks with you for a little while extra making you want another sip after it fades.

Overall: This is an above average beer. The head on it isn't so great and the smell, I wish was stronger but it tastes great and has a really good presence about it.

Serving type: on-tap
