12 oz bottle, $1.79. Singled out at #1 Big Red Liquors in Bloomington, Indiana.
This beer pours out a classic English brown-ale brown and has a small 1/8" dirty white head. There is a mildly hoppy nose here, but more than hops I am encountered by maple syrup, carmel, and roasted malts.
This beer tastes like a well-balanced brown ale taken up in scale about 25%. It isn't overwhelmingly hoppy or malty, but has an "averagely large" profile. I am amazed by the magically-hidden ABV. Still, it isn't anything impressinging coming from the shockers at Dogfish Head.
I also couldn't shake a strange garbage-water flavor somewhere in there. This beer also has a watery mouthfeel that left me bummed.
This one is decent but unspectacular. If you love brown ales, it is a must try. If you are a huge-beer fan, or love Dogfish Head's over-the-top nature, you'll probably like this one. But it ain't world-shaking.
