On tap at George street alehouse in new Brunswick. Arrives in a pint glass with a finger of foam. Rings of lace coat the glass as I drink.

Aroma is fairly mild but you do get a whiff of citrus hops and pale roasted malt. Flavor is a nice malty brown sweetness with a moderate dose of happy flavor and bitterness. This is nicely balanced with the hops breaking through to announce this is an American style brown. Awesome smooth creamy mouth feel.

Kane is consistently putting out great beers and this is no exception. Maybe a touch more mild than other offerings, but a flawless representation of the style.

Served on tap at the Shepherd and the Knucklehead Pub in Haledon, NJ

Looked auburn with about a half inch tan head. Smelled nice and malty, with hints of coffee and chocolate. The taste was about the same but the hops came through a bit more on the palette than on the nose. The mouthfeel was pretty thin... the only letdown for an otherwise stellar beer.

Overall this is a solid offering from a really consistent brewery. Happy to have these guys representing the NJ craft beer scene. I hope they'll get their beers distributed to areas outside of NJ really soon.
