3.31/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a medium brown colored brew with a one finger off white head. The head fades relatively quickly to leave a medium level of lacing.

Smell – The smell is heaviest of a mix of sweet caramel and some roasted malt. Mixed with these smells are a light herbal and grassy hop smell.

Taste –The taste starts out of sweet caramel malt up front. Some roasted malt flavors develop more toward the middle of the taste. At the same time a decent nuttiness comes at the expense of a bit of the sweet. In the end with the advent of some grassy hop tastes, a mildly sweet and light roasted nut flavor is left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is a bit on the lower side in terms of its creaminess with a carbonation level that was a little on the higher side. The higher carbonation was rather nice for the sweeter flavors of the brew, and matched the lighter body of it, although I think a creamier body would have been better for the nutty and roasted flavors. Overall the mouthfeel was a decent compromise between the sweet caramel and drinkability and the roasted and nut flavors.

Overall –An alight more sessionable brown ale.
