2.65/5  rDev -14.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

12 oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

A- Wafer sized dressing of lace, bright reddish brown color show off the clarity.

S- Mildly estery with an faint solvent alcohol and sweet caramel malt smell.

T&M- Mild astringent bite throughout, malty with a medium body and smooth mouth feel. Slight fume of solvent and estery alcohol comes after each sip and then a mild harshness. Maltiness is lost and hops are drawn to this harshness which only adds to the problem.

D- Could not finish the bottle, just too harsh for me. I'm used to mellow easy drinking Brown Ales which this is not.
