Not a lot to choose from at the Buffalo Wild Wings in Dedham, MA so I gave this a try hoping to see some semblance of my former admiration for the road weary Brown Ale. The color is light yellow brown with a nice white cover but very little lacing. The aroma brings a skunky caramel pond water idea. Not very inviting I'm afraid. The flavor is simple caramel water with some weak herbal-lemon hops. It's light to medium bodied with a slightly chalky feel and mildy carbonated. Not too great...winter? I don't see it, and won't revisit unless this was a dirty tap line or something.

Pretty boring brew, not at all what I suspected from Newcastle or from the description in the bottle. It tastes not like a winter ale nor an IPA.

A good smell upon open and pouring, with a nice copper color. After that, it's just pretty boring.

Not a bad brew, just boring. A good session brew, but pretty average in taste.
