A: Served a dark brown and topped by a surprisingly white head. Minimal lacing, however, the head sticks around.
S: Indicernable and weak. The best summary I can give is that it smelled of dark fruit. There was also a slight floral smell from the hops but nothing overwhelming.
T: Good definitely fruity almost reminiscent of wine. The sweetness is not overwhelming hop presence balances it out nicely.
MF: I would have prefered a little more carbonation; it seemed to fall flat towards the end.
O: Not bad definitlely would have on tap again, although, I wish it were a bit stronger.
Serving type: on-tap

Disappointing. It says Brown Ale, but it's not brown and you could have given me a Bud Light and I wouldn't have been able to tell the difference in taste.
Appearance was nice I had high hopes, poured a gorgeous deep ruby red/light brown color with a decent sized head.
Smell was disappointing. Malt and hops. Slight smell of wheat bread.
Taste was most disappointing at all. I taste literally nothing. It tastes like I am drinking soda water or beer water. Low carbonation makes it feel very thin and watery. Upon drinking one a night later I taste the skunk.
Overall this is bad. Won't be buying again won't be recommending.
