3.69/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance:
Holy sediment, Batman! Typically I have a flow to my reviews, but there is so much sediment floating around this glass - huge, flaky pieces - slowly falling out of suspension that I'd be remiss if I didn't point it out. Looking past this, the murky body is medium brown in color with a hint of red and topped with a nice, pale yellow head. Plenty of lacing and carbonation is visible on after straining your eyes.

Aroma:
Quite unique! There is a crisp tartness to it that I am actually struggling to describe and I like that challenge. Think about eating a pecan roll at a small table with a bouquet of flowers for a centerpiece. Plenty of floral notes mix quite well with sweet caramels and nuts, mostly pecan. For good measure, throw in a glass of fresh apple juice.

Taste:
Packs more bitterness than I was expecting.. This is not a bad thing, just surprising - more of an American Pale Ale/American Brown Ale hybrid. I like it. Plenty of mouth-drying hop character packing a citrusy punch up front and hangs around from beginning to end while sweet, toasted malts weave in and out while various nuts dance around your taste buds. Faint coffee notes sneak in at the finish.

Mouthfeel:
Medium-bodied beer. Light on carbonation. Finish is a bit too dry in my opinion.

Overall:
A well executed beer that blends styles very well. Not perfect by any means, but it is enjoyable.

3.5/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass.

3.5 A: Well hazed orange amber color, which is a strange color for something called a brown ale. One and a half fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is good and a short ring of lacing is left. Yeasties suspended throughout.

3.5 S: Despite the appearance, it smells like a brown ale. Lots of toastiness with a hazelnutty nuttiness. Grainy malts with a moderate sweetness.

3.5 T: Tastes like it smells. Toasty, nutty, grainy. Moderate neutral malt sweetness with some crystal malt. Super clean despite being unfiltered. Tasty.

3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and super smooth.

3.5 D: Fairly typical brown, but that not a bad thing because it means it's tasty. Good throughout.
