4/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Nice brown color, good head, leaves lacing

Smell: Dominated by roasted malts

Taste: Roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, toffee

Mouthfeel: Medium body, good carbonation

Overall: Pretty good, but this is a bit more like a stout. Not the most balanced flavor wise, drift wood (BA version of this) is much better and more balanced

My least favorite beer from Kane thus far, and somewhat disappointed to be honest. After absolutely falling in love with their Head High IPA, the Drift Life Brown Ale didn't live up to my hopes/expectations.

Pours dark brown color with ample tan head. Lots of malts, chocolate roasted aroma on the nose.

Taste is coffee, caramel with little citrus from the hops. My problem is that the flavors are light, and weak. Body is too thin and overall it's a very boring ale.
