Thank you papat444!

Appearance. Pours a deep, lightly hazy amber with a thin, off-white head.

Smell. Sweet caramel malts, a little pear and light fruits with some brown sugar.

Taste. Sweet caramel malts again, just a touch of molasses and a bit of grassy hop bitterness and light fruityness.

Mouthfeel. Medium body with medium+ carbonation.

Overall. A very nice beer that I'm enjoying despite the style not being one of my favorites. I love this brewery! Thanks again, papat444!

Bottle: Poured a clear amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and even some lacing. Aroma of unrefined cereal notes with light dry bitter notes. Taste is also a mix between some unrefined grain and cereal notes with dry bitter finish. Body is light with great carbonation. Weird unrefined grain bill didn’t cut it out for me.

Crystal clear amber with one ring fluffy beige settles pretty quick to a patchy film. Meh retention; barely any lacing.

Malty and caramelized. lots of nutty caramel malt aromas with a little refreshing citric aroma coming from the hops, and some spicy scents from the yeast (surprisingly).

Fairly dry with some pretty sweet hop tasteromas. Soap, hard water, grass, touch of dark fruits. mellow but decent.

Thinnish with a medium body and pretty "British"-feeling carbonation-wise. Semi-lingering finish but quite drinkable.

Decent but definitely confusing brown ale/rousse beer.
This is an easy-drinking beer in a cool looking can. Nonetheless I am not sure whether I liked it or not. It is not quite a PA, not quite a brown ale, and not quite an amber. It it's a decent beer but it's certainly nothing to lose your shit over.
Might have again; with buying to take our on a picnic or something when you want a beer but want something better than Molson or Bud.
