4.23/5 rDev +6.5%
Dark brown body, reddish highlights, topped by a creamy tan head. Dense but not thick lacing.
Cafe au lait aroma is highly inviting.
Taste has good chocolate, milk, with maybe some dark mixed in. Coffee follows, with a little cream in it. Oatmeal rolls in next. Finally an earthy hop overlay before all the flavors melt together in the afterglow.
Smooth and light mouthfeel, not heavy, but no holes or prickliness either.
The oatmeal is a really nice touch, raising this brown ale up a notch.

3.3/5 rDev -16.9%
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.

Had on tap a few times now, about time for a review.
Pours a deep brown Color with a mocha head and nice lacing.
Smells of oats, chocolate, caramel, and hints of earthy hops.
Taste follows smell, really no progression. Nice sweetness with a clean dry finish.
Mouthfeel is nice and creamy although it seems slightly too prickly on the carbonation.
Overall, it's good. I'm really enjoying the new New Jersey brews

poured from growler into tulip glass
Pours a chestnut brown color with some brighter reddish hues. Thinner tanned head fades out into some spotty lacing with wispy film on top.
Nice roasty, nutty malt character in the nose. Oatmeal with bread crust and light sweetness from dark chocolate.
Nutty and bready up front with a light sweetness. Chocolate and caramel with a decent oatmeal maltiness. Medium backbone, not overly sweet. Finishes a little dry.
Medium body, decent carbonation, pretty smooth and easy on the palate. Another nice beer from Kane - I'm excited to see what's next.
