BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Captain Lawrence Brewing Co.
New York, United States
captainlawrencebrewing.com

Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Named after the little birds that fly by the brewery looking for grain after the weather turns cold, this was originally to be a Fall/Winter seasonal. Clearly we underestimated the market for this smooth and malty brown ale, and we have decided to keep it for year round enjoyment.

Ruby brown amber color with a small beige head. Gentle carbs.
Appearance is rather dull looking.
Aroma is pleasent with some roasted malts. There is also some sutle nuts too in the aroma.
There is a sweetness too.
The taste is involving with a hint of roasted malts and bready grains and... do I detect some smokiness.
An engaging beer and a beer with some character.
