12 oz. bottle, bestby date 9-17.
Poured a nice nutty brown color, with a thick, off white head that hangs a round a while... still a good cover after 1/3 down.
Some great nutty rich malty aroma, though a bit faint.
Tastes after nose, with the nutty, malty, toffee up front and a perfect bittering with crisp carbonation. Iam sure the next one will need to sit a little longer to warm a bit, but this is going down really good. Aromas of malt and grains strengthening as it gets nearer the bottom. Feels like a perfect brown ale to me.
Overall, this Bad Penny is a great brown ale!

My introduction to Raleigh craft beer (although I had it in Charlotte a little over a year before moving down to NC). Crisp, slightly dry with nutty/toasted bread flavor notes. Slightly metallic tasting finish (it was off draught). It's a local staple around Raleigh, places that aren't even craft beer places tend to have it.

Enjoyable but not outstanding in any way. Low roastiness and malt flavors but both aromas and flavors are fairly muted. Yeasty aftertaste might indicate a low level sanitation problem.

Nice easy drinking brown. Well balanced and light mouthfeel. Clean finish.
