look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

on tap at BT's Southern BBQ in huntington beach.
dark brown with nice tan head on top.
smells roasty and nutty and kinda chocolate-y and smells perfect for this cool, gloomy, rainy day.
taste is above with a smokiness to it; very refreshing.
overall, a very clean finish to a tasty and nutty brown. i really liked this one. it left a great aftertaste, wasnt bitter, but had some great qualities such as the earthy, roasted nuttiness. i could do several of these in succession.

Serving type: on-tap

First, let me say I am not a brown ale fan.
Prefer amber, ipa or stout.

2nd, I am a fan of Avery, cans, and most Rocky Mountain micro-beers.

If you like Brown Ale, this blows away Newcastle.

Appearance - tawny, caramel brown, but let's face it brown ale is not the best color.
Smell - dog wet maltiness with sweetness riding on top
Taste - Natural, outdoorsy, woodsy, forward. Coffee / caramel hint.
Feel - Thinner than you'd expect

I prefer Avery's IPA.

Serving type: can
