3.48/5 rDev -8.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Aroma: Light caramel and maple syrup nose up front. Wheat bread crust character asserts as it warms. Light earthy and cedar like hop notes. Clean fermentation character.
Appearance: Deep shoe leather brown with ruby edging. Low one finger off-white head that retains well. Beer appears still in the glass.
Flavor: Light caramel flavors up front with low honey notes. More wheat crust character with earthy hop bitterness to provide a counterpoint. Finish is clean and dry. Balance is nearly even but slightly leaning toward the malt profile.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with high, prickly carbonation. No heat, astringency, or creaminess.
Overall impression: A solid American Brown Ale. It seemed to bitter to be an English Brown even though that's where it's slotted here. I'd try it again but in general, browns don't get me too excited.
Serving type: bottle
