Also had this on tap at The Distillery. Went local over a lot of other solid drafts. Dark brown to black with reddish hints at edges. Thin head which faded fast. Not picking up much aroma here. Taste is hoppier than most brown ales I've had. Some tobacco and rye flavors. Not getting the chocolate here. Kinda thin watery feel and a metallic aftertaste. Not feeling this one.

12 ounce can canned in April 2013. Thanks Brandon!
Pours clear, deep reddish brown in color, with a small but durable tan head.

Aroma: a balanced and very appealing mix hops and malts.
The flavor leans more to the hoppy side, and is certainly a bit hoppy for style.
Medium body; crisp, medium+ carbonation.

"This American Brown Ale is crafted with a rich malt flavor, balanced by a crisp hop finish." Brewed in the style of an American Brown Ale, this is one of two launch year round releases by Coastal Empire Beer Co., available in 12 oz. can 6 packs and on draft.

Poured from a 12 oz. can to a pint glass. Served above 55º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pourer be wary as this beer is easily excited and explosive upon opening. Pours a biscuity cream white head of a foamy frothed consistency over an amber brown body with a moderate haze. Carbonation is plentiful and spritely. Retention is above average, lacing is light and patchy. 3.75

(Smell) A very fruity, citrusy nose for a brown ale. Moderately roasted bready barley malts, some toasted caramel grain, a pinch of unsweetened chocolate. Hop profile generates some herbal, peppery and citrusy notes with a mellow perceived bitterness. Sweet fruity notes of raisin and date with brown sugar sweetness help amplify the body. Potency is moderate. 3.75

(Taste) Grainy caramel, chocolate syrup and bread malts create a solid malt body, with a citrusy hop undertone. Bitterness is moderate, a bit more amplified than expected per the style. The finish is mildly dry with a toasted nutty bitterness. 3.5

(Mouthfeel) Texture is smooth, fluffy, slightly chewy. Carbonation lends a soft frothiness for an increased creaminess. Body is medium for the style, medium+ overall. Balance is slightly sweet over bitter. Alcohol presence is mild, off characters minimal. 3.75

(Overall) A pretty enjoyable American Brown Ale with a good deal of hop character and citrusy notes in the background. Quite tasty and unique. 3.75
