look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle from Whole Foods in Charlottesville, VA. Poured into a traditional American pint glass.

Appearance: Largely brown, but light around the edges - clear enough to see pretty highly active carbonation, very fine looking. A good tan head settles on stop and has pretty good retention. Leaves erratic lacing all over the place.

Aroma: Caramel and grainy toast, with the faintest hint of spicy, neutral hops.

Taste: Sweet roasted malts up front. Gradually dries out as the sip progresses with a few nutty overtones, a toasted, grainy presence, a mild hop bitterness, and a steely, dry finish, perhaps from the water.

Mouthfeel: Medium-to-thin bodied, big bubbled and uneven. Fairly big, fluffy head.

Drinkability: This one's pretty solid across the board, if not outstanding. Low in alcohol, tasty, attractive, and nothing distracting or cloying about it. A good outing from Brooklyn.

a - poured a two fingers thick tan-colored head into a tumbler. body is clear mahogany that leaves a nice ring throughout.
s - malty and chocolately.
t - tastes of toffee and roasted malts. slight pine hoppiness present.
m - smooth mouthfeel.
d - has a clean and slightly metallic finish. overall a decent beer but not one of my favorite brown ales.
