Avery has generally been a disappointment for me so this was nice surprise. Nice malty flavor that had me licking my lips between drinks, this is a good thing for me. Sweet on the finish that almost seemed like candy. Low on the bitter which is also good for me. Lacks a lot of complexity or character. Overall I felt is was outstanding beer that was smooth, easy to drink, and hopefully one I will have again. Not the best brown but very nice.
