Excellent job at K.I.S.S. & delicious! I feel too many beers try too hard. This beer does not!

12oz draft served at Louisville's newest craft beer digs - the Crescent Hill Craft House

A: Looks the part of a classic brown ale - dark mahogany with ruby highlights; interesting with little head off the tap and no retention - just a slight collar of tan colored foam; minimal lacing.

S: Lighter than anticipated on the nose; some caramel sweetness; faint hints of vanilla and the lightest of a chocolate undertone manage to break through the soft bready/nutty malt profile as the glass warms; to be honest, I didn't get a lot off of the nose of this one, but it could be a result of the plethora of fantastic smells coming from the kitchen just 15ft to the right of our seats at the bar at Crescent Hill Craft House.

T: Assertive maltiness up front in the form of warm bready flavor; vanilla appears late, breaking through with a hint of sweetness along with a light chocolate note; vanilla rises as glass warms to room temp; finish is slightly drying with a toasted bread and a nutty note tailing off while a kiss of vanilla just lingers beyond the swallow to draw you in for the next sip; not overly sweet but with a nice balance between malt and the vanilla on the finish.

M: Fine carbonation breaks through the initial oily feel on the palate; finishes with a nice, frothy crispness; interesting juxtaposition of a darker beer with a much lighter-bodied feel than its initial looks would suggest, but it works for me.

O: A solid brown ale from a great local brewery, and one that I'm glad to have had the chance to try given its limited availability. The vanilla note peaks through late to add a nice, slightly sweet twist on a classic style, making this one supremely drinkable brown ale. If you find this on tap, take advantage of the opportunity.
