Growler. Served at around 45F.

Pours clear reddish brown with a one finger tan head that leaves a few spots of temporary lacing and holds a light cap.

Aroma is coffee, nutty and bready with citrus and floral hops. Some cherries? Kinda weird. Mild strength.

Flavor has some nutty, bready malt with a bit of caramel and chocolate, quite a bit of hops for a Brown, dunno if it fits really well. Also some Cherry Coke & Root Beer. Kinda weird.

Mouthfeel is light/medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Not really blown away by this one...come across sort of odd for a Brown Ale...too hoppy for the style and the hops they use don’t fit well. An oddball.

16 ounce pint - $5.25 at Taco Mac in Canton, Georgia. The Taco Mac menu denotes an ABV% of 7.2.

Appearance: Served up a clear, fairly bright mahogany body with a slim, ivory-hued head. Looks like an amber ale. Taco Mac staff has been known to goof now and again, though, a quick double-check was made to confirm that this was, indeed, the Watership "Brown".

Smell: Not too terribly aromatic here, only offering up a thin sniff of vaguely sweetish malts. Rabbits and even the aromas of rabbit book-inspired beers scare easily, I suppose.

Taste: Scantly bready maltiness with a mealy grainy quality to it. Crystal malt sweetness and incorporated fruitiness along with the low estery quality of the yeast. Subtle hop character, lightly bitter. Some alcohol warmth creeping in, overshadowing the malty finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: From even the first glance of the waitress walking this one over to me, it just seems more akin to an amber, really. And one with a bit more alcohol than needed at that.

I bought a growler of this very nice brown ale from the Beer Growler in Avondale Estates. Pours more of an amber than a brown and with a somewhat slight head. The nose and taste, however, are all about the brown. Roasty aromas in the nose with a substantial citrus undercurrent and a slight note of banana. Balanced fruitiness and roasty notes in the taste. Citrusy to start, and then develops deep roastiness with a bit of bitter chocolate on the finish. Deeply rewarding flavors balanced by the bright citrus. Smooth and full without being chewy. A fine effort and with a unique profile. Really nice fresh like this. Nice to see this brewery's offerings in the community!
