look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a pretty dark amber color with a 1 inch head. Smell is mild, a bit of hops. Taste is good, nutty, some caramel notes, a bit of hops, very easy drinking. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overallis an enjoyable beer.

Dirty amber with 1-2 fingers of off-white head that dissipates quickly. Very low carbonation.

Caramel, brown sugar and cinnamon.

Caramelized brown sugar and a healthy dose of nuts. Light dusting of powdered cocoa and cinnamon.

Medium bodied, crisp, clean and refreshing.

Overall
A very refreshing Brown Ale more in the tradition of an English Brown.

It may be hard to fathom for some, but not all of my beer drinking is done in public. Some I save for the privacy of my kitchen and my keyboard. This is one of those times. It was getting onto Last Call at The Fridge and Jeannie was giving me the Evil Eye if I did not close out and get out. I closed out and got while the gettin' was good, but I took a mixed-6 just in case I might need a top-off upon returning to Abbaye de Chandler. It turned out that I was satiated as I awoke on the couch with a sixer at my feet. It is good to be king!

My pour created a finger of thin, light-tan head with (frankly) poor retention. Hey, where did you go?!? Krass Brothers, Store of the Stars?!? Color was a deep-amber/light-brown with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a chocolaty quality along with a light hoppy bitterness. Mouthfeel was medium with a cocoa flavor on the tongue. Finish was semi-dry and the cocoa flavor lingered well past the finish. It was a so-so beer and I would recommend the Mango Wango Tango over this one.
