Got this bottle from the Whole Foods in Springfield. Totally glad my bud Kevin got some time off to tend to his new baby.

A: Poured pretty dark, ruby color, with a 1/2 finger white head.

S: Had the brown ale flair and then some. A bit of feet in between the cracks.

T: Not that sour at all. More brown ale than anything. Not a brown sugar beer though.

M; Mild splotch on the glass and a good bit of carbonation... more that I thought there would be.

O: This is a worthy entry into the sour brown category.
