Draft serving, thin off-white head, fair lacing, lovely medium brown color, crystal clear. Very little aroma--a hint of hops and malt. Flavor is underwhelming, hops, mild malt flavor, a bit of caramel, no fruity notes. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and foamy. Not a really pleasant ale to drink, mostly dissapointing. Just OK.

Pour had no head on a dark brown body.
The aroma was mild brown sugar. Fine but not much there.
The taste had a mild sweet malt balanced out with mild bitter.
Crisp with low to moderate carbonation.
It is a pretty mellow beer, which made it an easy drinker.

12 oz bottle from a friends BOMC. No clue when this was bottled. Poured into a Sam Adams glass.

Appearance: Gushes and is mostly foam on the pour. Sigh. When it finally settles down it is a muddy-brown opaque color with a creamy-tan head. Lots of head retention and lacing.

Smell: Tart and sour already. Beyond that, Roasty and Spicy. Some hazelnut and cinnamon.

Taste: Not sure what was intended here, but lots of funk and sourness to this one. Otherwise, stale malts and no hop presence. No bitterness.

Feel: Overly carbonated. Mellow finish, but struggling with this one.

Overall: I'm guessing this mess was infected. I couldn't catch much flavors beyond the funk, seemed kind of stale. This is why I avoid BOMC clubs.

Snowshoe brewing grizzley brown ale

A/ pour produces a 1-1/2 finger light brown fizzy head resting on a dark brown body. Not much retention. No lacing 3  

S- toasted malt, nutty, subtle floral scent, some hops in the background. 4   

T- toasty, nutty, chocolate, caramel, lightly hoppy, light yeast, dry on the finish. It's a pretty solid English brown ale but nothing special 3.5 

M- kind of watery and tonic like carbonation upfront and flat and watery on the back. Weird 2.5  

O- it's a good beer. The mouthfeel detracts from it but I could have a couple of these so moderate drinkability. 3

C+
