Poured from a bottle (marked "11585 PKGD 10/30/12 A") into a pint glass.
Appearance: Poured a beautiful clear brown with ruby highlights. There was only a scant head that dissipated quickly into patchy foam.
Aroma: There was little aroma -- mild hops and caramel malt.
Taste: A roasty flavor with slight malt sweetness, slight hoppiness, and some black coffee. This is not a deeply flavored beer, nor is the profile terribly complex. A sight bitterness lingers after swallowing.
Mouthfeel: This beer has a nice medium body with a medium level of carbonation.
Overall: This is a pleasant, dependable brown ale. I would have preferred a little more character in the flavor profile. But I'll definitely have it again as it's readily available here in Michigan. This beer should go well with many foods. It struck me that this would be a good session beer, but the ABV is a little high (5.8%) for this.
Serving type: bottle
