An all around excellent example of an American brown ale. Appearance is between deep Garnett and brown, very clear with a moderate off white head. Aromas of fresh malt, toast, caramel, and chocolate. Taste starts of with a combination of fresh malt and toast, and finishes off with hints of caramel, chocolate and coffee, with a nice crisp clean bitterness. Mouth feel is medium to full bodied, mildly carbonated with a fairly clean finish.

This is an excellant example of this style. the color and look of this beer is appealing. the aroma is great, smells very balanced with notes of nuts and more apparent malts and barley. taste is great! not too rich or complex but very well rounded yet very tastey , not lacking in flavor but not overboard either. Very smooth and balanced, great and simple, I would say this is a perfect session brown ale!

This beer pours a dark brown color with red hues along the edges. The head is on inch of light tan foam that recedes slowly into a nice cap of lacing. The aroma is of caramel, toffee, nuts, with a very faint hint of dark fruits. The aroma is amazingly strong for a beer of such low alcohol. The taste is similarly strong with a bunch of nice malty flavors. Toffee, nuts, baked bread, and molasses. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lively carbonation, and a smooth texture. Overall, I really like this beer, and can see myself drinking it regularly. It almost ventures into the realm of a Dark Mild Ale in both its flavor and aroma, and I really appreciate that aspect of this beer.

Appearance: Brown in color, kind of rusty. Light creamy head but not much lacing. Looks somewhat like a coca-cola.

Smell: Roasted malt, but light. Some bread and biscuits. A bit nutty.

Taste: Very nice. Smooth. Roasted flavors with some coffee. A slight bitterness of hops way in the background, but very well blended. An interesting in-between taste. More roasted than some brown ales but definitely lighter than a porter.

Mouthfeel: Medium mouth feel. Very light carbonation.

Drinkability: Quite drinkable, but I'm a big fan of brown ales. I would say that this is definitely a beer you should consider when you want a dark beer but one that's on the lighter side and more refreshing in taste than stouts or porters.

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.

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.
