From Empire State Cellars in Tanger (Riverhead); notes are from 5/29

Surprisingly clear, this beer is more a shade of red than brown. The head sits heavily atop it, a thick finger and a half of foam. Lace is chunky and patchy.
The aroma is light, but a nice one offering toasted malt, nut, and a little toffee and caramel.
The flavor is stronger and more developed. It gives up nut, a bit of wood, and some bread; it leans toward toasty, though not as much as the aroma. The yeast brings out fuller fruity esters.
The medium body focuses on crispness, and leans pretty light. Toasty dryness builds gently.

Yes, the legendary woodychandler comes through again with another canned beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is nutty, a bit of hops. Taste is well balanced hops and malts, a bit of nuts, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.

This was a CANQuest (TM) score during my most recent foray to New York and Brooklyn, making it ever easier to entice me to come up and visit! Have CANS? Will Travel! That's my motto.

From the CAN: "Brooklyn Crafted Since 2006"; "Full malt flavor, spicy hop background, clean, crisp finish"; "CANS: Infinitely recyclable Beer helps"; "Created by the husband and wife team of Kelly Taylor & Sonya Giacobbe, these 100% hand-made craft ales and lagers have been brewed fresh in the bountiful borough of Brooklyn since 2006. Mounds of malt, bales of hops and countless hours of dedication and passion. That's KelSo Beer."

A nice, loud Crack! revealed a brimful CAN, so in salute to the brewers, I utilized an inverted Glug. The pseudo-cascade was brilliant, finally settling into two fingers of dense, foamy, light-tan with limited retention, although it was already beginning to evince some great lacing. Color was more coppery than brown (SRM = ~ 22), but with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a really malty sweetness and I would have sworn that I was drinking an ale! Mouthfeel was medium-to-full and the taste was kind of chocolaty, sort of nutty and VERY reminiscent of Newcastle Brown Ale. Did I just type that? Well, I kid you not and if this is a lager, then I am deeply impressed! The hops were not what the verbiage had led me to expect as they were pretty much not discernible but the finish had the same sweet malt flavors that I usually get in an ale. This would be worth seeking out as a novelty, but if you are into Brown Ales (I am not), then you should definitely see how this stacks up against some of your faves.
