12oz bottle poured into snifter.
Appearance-pours red brown with very small light khaki head, mild carbonation. 3.25
Aroma-Carmel, hint of roasted nuts, some light brown sugar, nothing much going on here. 2.5
Taste-light roasted malts, roasted peanut, a little brown sugar, better than aroma but not by much. 2.75
Feel-light bodied, very watery, barely coats palate, aftertaste is brief, as drinkable as water. 2.5
Overall-Wow, I used to love this beer. Revisiting now is kind of eye opening, my palate has came a long way. This beer isn't horrible but its not anything other than beer to drink to get drunk. The flavor is better than most lagers but compared to other brown ales it is falling very far behind. Lots of other fish in the sea.2.75
