Pours a ruby colored dark amber with a nice head. Easy to drink, kicks like a mule. Try it!

My go-to-beer. Simple, readily available, 7.4% brown ale for a good price. I enjoying having a variety of beer and tend to not buy 12 packs of anything with the exception of Shed because I could go for one after a long workday

Pours a hazy amber to a very dark almost ruby black color. Head builds to excellent level and shows good lacing retention. Some carbonation can be seen towards the bottom where the color is lightest. Smells of fresh biscuits, caramel, and faint Scotch like alcohol scents. Mouth is all malted bread and caramel. Good alcohol bite at the mid=palate with light hop notes. A little bitter on the back side of the flavor profile. Just enough to let you know there is some hops there. Whiskey barrel flavors of smoke, leather, and oak linger. Not sure where that comes from but it's pleasant and complimentary. Very good. 4.25 out of 5.

Brownish in color but certainly not in character, absolutely drinks like a session or Irish red. Lack of mouthy maltiness.

L: The color is about a 13-14 on the SRM. Definitely cloudy in appearance when held up to the light with some of the ingredients visibly floating around. The head did not last too long and it had a lightish foaminess to it. There was some lacing though not a lot.

S: There is a definite alcohol kick to the aroma, but considering its 7.4% ABV not bad. With a breadiness like generic store bought wheat bread. A little sweetish with stone fruit notes and some woodiness kind of cedarish. Definitely some pepper not much clove and a little bit of orange.

T: The flavor had spiciness to it and a woodiness to the aftertaste. There was a toasted flavor, almost burnt at first but giving way to the former. If there was any fruit flavor it would be grapefruit and maybe a little banana, but not much. There was a nuttiness, like pistachio and macadamia at the end.

F: It was creamy in mouthfeel not very astringent at all with a warmth on the tongue. The finish had a little bite IMO.

O: Overall it's a nice beer and the creaminess balanced with the warmth was really nice. The bitterness of the grapefruit didn't linger long. I would recommend it, felt like the people that made it put a lot of heart into it.
