12 oz. bottle poured into a standard pint.

Appearance: Pours a clear brown with a one-finger off-white head.

Aroma: Has a nutty, caramel-accented aroma.

Taste: Taste follows the nose, with some cherries and fruitiness in the background. A little bit of bread crust is in there, too. Slightly sweet on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Somewhat light of body for the style.

Overall: Nice little mild brown ale. Decent companion for a bowl of hot soup on a cold night.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Brown with a thin off white head. No lacing on the glass.

Smell: Mild malts and nutty.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Rough medium bodied. Taste of a typical brown, nutty with malts mild hop bitterness.

Overall: Not horrible but I have had better. What I expected from a Gritty's beer.

Had this beer on tap - watery - lacking in body and flavor.
