2.08/5 rDev -42.7%
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams "perfect pint" glass. This is my first time having this beer, and only my second or third time trying a Brooklyn brew.
Appearance - Brown. What struck me most is how clear it is though. You're able to mostly see through it. Kind of disappointing, as I tend to like my brown ales to be darker and more stout-ish.
Smell - Smells of some caramel sweetness, but it's not that significant.
Taste - Not much. Not much at all. A little nutty, but I'm disappointed by the lack of any real flavor. The caramel sweetness in the aroma is definitely not present in the taste. No bitterness. Maybe a TINY bit of diacetyl, but I'm not sure if that's normal or perhaps I just got a bad batch. Nothing noteworthy here.
Mouthfeel - Thin... that's pretty much it.
Overall, I just don't see what anybody could really like about this beer. I finished it because it didn't taste particularly bad; it just didn't taste much like anything at all.
