look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
12 oz. bottle poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a cloudy brown color with amber highlights and a two-finger beige head.
Smell: When I think brown ale, this is pretty much exactly the aroma I envision - nuts, lightly toasted malts, a hint of caramel. Very nice.
Taste: Similar to the smell, but a little bit toned down. Toasted malts, nuts, caramel malt, just a touch of earthy hops.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light-bodied with a medium-to-high carbonation level for the style. Comes off a tad bit watery.
Overall: This is a style I tend to overlook, so I'm glad I picked this beer up. Very good example of the style, although a little more body would have been ideal.
Serving type: on-tap

A: A nice solid brown color, nor overly red or black with minimal cloudiness.
S: Caramel and sweet grain notes which are similar to of aromas generated during the mashing process.
T: The main component of this beer is the malts as it should be. This beer trends toward the sweeter side with a very minimal bitter finish which could come from either bittering hops or the darker malts, likely the later.
M: Very light in body and mouthfeel, which combined with the average ABV makes this especially smooth and easy to drink.
O: This was one of the 4 original beers offered by Ithaca beer. No outstanding qualities but a solid brown ale. Hard to find on tap but readily available in bottles in the Northeast.
