3.7/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Served in a pint glass

A: pours a nice medium amber color that is entirely clear with a hefty amount of carbonation bubbles, pours with a thin amount of slightly off white head that dissipates immediately
S: nice hop notes, some sort of sweetness that seems like it may be from some sort of berry
T: very very slight hopiness, very nice sweetness that seems as though it is typical of an amber or brown, overall great taste that is somehow indescribable
M: STRONG carbonation, leaves the palate smoothly but with a very slight lingering sweetness at the back of the throat
O: love this brew, highly drinkable with great flavor that is not overbearing but also does not leave you wanting more

Had on tap at Council Rock.Poured into a nonic a deep chesnut brown with ruby hue,a half finger off white head atop.Aromas were quite sweet with caramel and fruity notes,faint nuttiness was there as well.Caramel and fruit on the palate with brown sugar notes lending more sweetness,a light drying earthy pine note in the finish.On the sweeter side for my liking but not to bad.

A-Cloudy hazel, three finger light tan head that leaves behind a good deal of lacing.

S-Nuts, some roasted malt, caramel and toffee.

T-Blend of nuts, roasted malt and caramel with some bitterness.

M-Medium bodied, however it doesn't have much carbonation and it is on the watery side.

O-A decent brown ale, however the body could have been much fuller.

A: Hazy cherry brown with a nice white head and some great lacing.

S: Nutty and fruity on the front of the nose with a toasted caramel malt back-end.

T: Malty up-front with a nice toasted nut bread middle and a crisp, dry finish. The range of flavors is balanced and includes notes of tree nuts, bread crust, caramel malts, raisins, some grassy hop notes, and earth.

M: Easy feeling brew with a nice clean finish. A touch watery in the mouth with a tinny feel, but not overwhelmingly so.

O: This is a great, well-balanced brown ale that doesnt kill it with the maltiness like some others. Tasty, refreshing, and light enough for a good session.

had a pint last night at my favorite local spot, Morrison's.

brew had a nice transparent brown look with a thin head in the pint glass. really nice malt with subtle glazing of brown sugar. very soft and easy drinking. the kind of beer you can gulp. sweetness was good with some nuttiness...everything in the right place. really nice brown ale that sort of reminded me of a less earthy version of Brown Bird from capt lawrence.
