Been wanting to try this ever since I caught a smell of a remaining drop in a family growler.

A - Very interesting, pours to a dark golden color, not the brown I was suspecting. Barely any head, just a faint white ring

S - Hard to place, lots of nuts and caramel, but also faint fruits

T - Even more interesting, the nuts and slight caramel are there, hops are oddly in the front and very faint, has that roasted malt to it but also more of an IPA style as a whole.

M - Fairly syrupy, a little carbonation but not a whole lot

O - Overall its a fairly complex beer, not quite what I was expecting from a brown ale. It's also pretty light. Nothing too crazy but something I would definitely have again.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a mostly clear amber/brown color with a half inch off-white head that went away quickly. There's a small amount of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is bready malt, toffee, nuts and some herbal hops. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but there's the addition of some honey. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit coating with a moderate amount of carbonation. I think this is a solid brew, it's worth trying.
