T - Roasted nuts, coffee, caramel, cola, and molasses

M - a little thin with a coffee aftertaste

O - as brown ales go this one is pretty good, a bit more robust than most.

3.79/5  rDev +8.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A - brown with red edges; thin, soft, off white, brownish head

S - caramel, piny hops, faint coffee

T - nutty, caramel, piny hops, some roasted malts

M - medium bodied, well carbonated

This is a solid brown ale. It's very traditional but with a bolder than expected hop character. It's not very robust, but it is refreshing and easily drinkable. A nice offering from Foothills.
