Nice reddish tawny pour. Thin head, nice lacing. Slightly toasty aroma, a touch vegetal.

Good toasty flavor, basic but nice.
Nice session beer given to me in a fine birthday 8-pack.

3.15/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Serving: Bottle into pint
Served: 16 July 2014

Appearance: Pours a crystal clear amber brown with a two finger dirty white head. Head takes some time to dissipate but does not leave any appreciable lacing. Slight carbonation bubbling up from the bottom makes this one look pretty decent.

Smell: Sweet malts and a strange musky hoppiness.

Taste: Rather than being a malt driven brown ale (which is really the ONLY way a brown ale should be), this one is lacking in malts and too strong in hops. The malt backbone is really thin and flavorless, meaning any hopping in the beer comes out too strong, adding an uncharacteristic spiciness to the beer, especially on the very front end.

Mouthfeel: Thin.

Overall: One of the worse brown ales I've had.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

App: straight brown color, with average - moderate head, and mild aroma

Entree: initial nice taste / mouthful

Dessert: taste lingers with mild-moderate lingering aftertaste, that leaves me "indifferent"

Having drank Cabin Fever brown ale from New Holland prior to, just not desirable flavorwise.
