3.93/5 rDev +18.4%
Enjoyed this brew at BW3’s out of a large pint glass.
A: Pours brown hue with a 1-finger off-white head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace that eventually disappears.
S: Light roasted malt aroma – with hints of toffee and brown sugar.
T: Sweet brown ale with a good nutty background. Hints of coca powder and toasted malts.
M: Medium body and medium carbonation
O: This beer tastes soo much better on tap than from a bottle. It is well balanced and very tasty. I think the beer gets skunked in the bottle due to it being clear – what are they thinking?

1.7/5 rDev -48.8%
Simple reddish colored and well laced body. The aromas are boring and dulll just nothing worth speaking of. Flavors aren't much better. Sweet, touch of sour, no body or depth, no dark flavors, no yeast....this is just not good and frankly it is pretty crappy.
Just not interested. if nothing is on tap and this one is cheap go for it...
Overall this isn't exciting or good..

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
A - Brownish amber, forms a quick tall head of off white that falls rapidly, stopping before it disappears to leave a thin layer. Moderate lacing all around.
S - Very faint, very subtle. A little sweet, a little malty, but that's about it.
T - Nutty and malty. Light caramel with a hint of buttery toffee. Tastes similar to a dark malted bread.
M - Smooth and dry, with a minor amount of crispness at the end. A little thin, almost watery, but thankfully not overcarbonated.
O - There is no doubt this is a brown ale, even if it is a little underwhelming example thereof. This is bottled in clear glass, and with such a low ABV, there is always a risk of the beer having gone bad, but for an occasional beer, I consider it worth the risk.
