3.53/5 rDev -3.8%
Bottle poured into a pint glass
The appearance is a clean and clear dark caramel brown. The head disappeared almost instantly and left no real lacing. The aroma is candy sweet and that is about all. The flavor is mild with hints of roasted grain and a lot of sweetness. There is just a touch of hops to balance the sweetness of this brew. The MF is light and crisp as it should be.
Overall, this is a pretty decent session beer and an alright mild brown ale. Nothing spectacular but nothing amazing either.

This is a nice treat and a little different style offering for a PA brewery.
Lovely aromas of roasted grains, caramel, and a little nutty. All present in the taste. Just a little fruitiness as well. But with all that aroma and flavor, this beer has a nice even finish. Very balanced, which makes this beer big on flavor but easy on the pallet.
Very drinkable and a change up from the normal offering of a PA brewer. Very good.

3.28/5 rDev -10.6%
Served in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance – Served a deep red-brownish color with a lighter just off white head. The head faded rather fast leaving only a very light amount of lacing.
Smell – Roasted and more nutty aromas are heaviest. The darker/nutty smells are accompanied by some sweeter aromas of molasses and brown sugar.
Taste – The taste follows the nose quite well. It starts out quite roasty with some good sweetness. A brown bread flavor with hints of nuts mixed within. The sweetness in the flavor at the start is largely of brown sugar. As the taste advances however the brown sugar transitions to a more bitter chocolate flavor. This overall bitters the flavor a bit, and at the end leaves a more dry/bitter roasted flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – While at only 4.8 % abv it has a rather creamy body, which complements the roasty flavors well. The carbonation of the brew is on the normal side.
Overall – A light abv beer with a roasty flavor. Not the greatest darker brew, but lighter and good for a session beer. One to try.
