12oz bottle, best by end of Nov 2011. Served at 45F.

Pours clear copper brown with a small light beige head that leaves a few spots of lacing and recedes to a wispy cap.

Aroma features some mild nuts, toffee, but also some unfortunate cardboard and maybe slightly metallic. Moderate strength but does get a little better as it warms.

Flavor is better than the aroma and has some caramel, toffee, brown sugar, nuts, some herbal hops, fair sweetness mild bitterness, little alcohol.

Mouthfeel is light/medium bodied with strong carbonation.

Average Brown Ale, not terribly impressed overall.

Aroma is hay/grass and grains. Comes across lagery smelling. Reddish brown with a diminuitive pinky thick tan head. Fore is nutty, a tinge tobacco-like with peanutskins and sweeter malts. Fairly low intensity flavor gives it a steeped tea bag feel flavor wise. Not at all bad tasting just very thin.

Acquired from unclejedi through the Little Guy BIF, so a big “Thank you” goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep brown color with a very thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is sweet and heavy with maple syrup, roasted nuts and caramelized malt.

T: The taste is nowhere near as sweet as the smell, but the same flavors of maple syrup, roasted nuts & caramel are the ones that dominate. The malt character is heavy and the hops presence is very mild. The after-taste is dry and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp with a little bit of smoothness, medium body, medium carbonation, dry and slightly sticky finish.

D: A little tasty, goes down ok, not very filling, decent representation of style, but overall I just wasn’t very impressed.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a clear dark brown with a one finger tan head.

Aroma of caramel, coffee, cocoa, along with some toasted malt. Really a nice roasty character with this beer.

The roasted characteristics continue into the taste. Some cocoa and coffee up front with caramel in the background. Toasted malt and maybe a little pipe tobacco. A light bitterness emerges towards the finish with a slightly sticky mouthfeel.

Overall, a run of the mill brown ale that doesn't really stand out from the pack. Although it is fairly refreshing and a local brew that I would probably get again sometime.
