Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Imperial Pint.

Appearance: Rich, dark brown with initial fizzy head but dies down leaving just a thin crest behind. Kind of expected for a low abv brown, so that's okay.

Smell: Very malty, with caramel, chocolate, some dark fruit and just a hint of walnuts.

Taste: Pretty much mirrors the smell, with caramel and chocolate and a nice layer of dark fruit. The malts never get too sweet. The finish is lightly hoppy, with some spiciness and a little nuttiness. Mild bitterness.

Feel: Moderate carbonation, medium sized body (not too thin considering the abv). Finish is surprisingly dry.

Overall: Definitely a quality Brown Ale, and great for the price. The only downside is that MN has quite a few quality Browns already - the bigger Brau Brothers Ring Neck, the spiced Lift Bridge Chestnut Hill, and of course the cross-style Surly Bender.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams "Perfect Pint" glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep and dark brown with some hints of amber and ruby red. Big five finger off white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing around the glass.

Smell: Lots of sweet and roasty dark malts. Rich malts with good hints of caramel, toffee, chocolate, and burnt toast. Big hints of nuts. Subtle hints of dark fruit. A decent scent of earthy hops in the background. Smells pretty roasty and rich. Very solid aroma.

Taste: Like the smell, a very full and roasty tasting brown. Big taste of sweet roasted malts with big notes of chocolate, caramel, toffee, nuts, and burnt toast. Subtle taste of dark raisin and prune add a little sweetness. The sweetness is balanced by a decent bitterness from some earthy and spicy hops. A very rich and balanced taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very creamy. Lightly syrupy, but finishes somewhat dry. Very smooth.

Overall: A really solid all around brown ale. Good sweet dark malts with a nice hop presence.

Appearance:
Poured into a nonic pint glass, I was greeted by a deep brown colored body that allowed very little light to pass through. Crowned by a tan, pillowy head that leaves a decent amount of lacing behind.

Aroma:
The aroma here is simple, but not that of your typical brown ale. Cocoa nibs with vague hints of roasted coffee. Light traces of molasses provide sweetness. It's crisp, but reminds me more of a stout.

Taste:
How does it taste then? Well.. like a delicious ale that shares qualities of a brown and qualities of a porter. A lot of bitter chocolate is present here. Light peat character and sweet molasses. Faint nuttiness, but not nearly enough for the style. Likewise with the hops, I'd like more presence.

Mouthfeel:
I would also like more carbonation. The body is smooth and helping make this lightly carbonated ale go down easy. Clean, semi-sweet finish makes you eager to reach for another sip.

Overall:
What we have here is an incredibly likable and easy to drink hybrid ale that I'm happy I grabbed on my last visit to Minnesota.

Picked up a single at Princeton Liquors. I don't often take notice of brown ale, but this has big cocoa and roasted barley flavors without too thick a body, like so many American browns. It's not sweet and fruity like an English, but also not as bitter as many craft browns. It's just a smooth, clean mix of dark grains that's appropriate in any weather. Check it out. Another fine beer from Third Street. It's great to see the folks in Cold Springs making solid beer.

Pours a light brown with a solid, attractive head that had good retention before settling to a thin cap. Moderate amount of sticky lacing is left down the glass.

Enjoyable malty aroma of caramel, toast, and slightly nutty. Some earthy hops as well. Solid.

Nice flavor of caramel and bready malt. Also get nutty and chocolate notes. A little hoppiness and flavor enough that I get some earthy notes. Pretty good flavor out of a 4.9% ABV beer. Very clean.

Body is on the lighter side which is not surprising. Well match carbonation that gives the beer life without going overboard.

An all around solid beer. Love the low ABV and drinkability. I have been impressed with all the Third Street beers and all of them will be in my regular rotation.
