Okay, so I might be a bit excited seeing as this is only the SECOND beer I've had by New Glarus, the first being the wonderful Serendipity... but DAMN this is a good brown ale!

Starts off with a great pour, thin compared to other brown ales, but none the less it pours beautifully, into a rich brown color akin to fallen leaves and (hah!) a brown squirrel, with an opaque head that disappears rather quick.

Upon first sniff, a warm malty aroma fills the nostrils, vaguely sweet and savory. The pallet follows with rich malt but with an almost caramel sweetness. Definitely a drinkable, delicious beer.

Overall, another great beer by New Glarus, definitely worth trying.
