Twist off bottle poured into a pint glass, from the ubiquitious perveyors of contract brews in Rochester, NY. The pour is a dark amber though not quite brown and offers a fairly resilient cap of tan foam. Shows good clarity.

Moderate maltiness on the aroma with a pleasant nutty aroma. I don't get a sense of artificial here yet the nut character seems a bit too solitary but the liquid is quite cold. We'll see how it warms.

Taste follows with some light roast character and a sweet nutty finish. Finish is somewhat brief and offers a spicy coarseness that fits well with the carbonation level. Overall better than I expected, or should I say, feared. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but not unexpected given the lack of complexity of the malt bill. Warming exposes the beer for what it is; a decent yet somewhat boring brown ale, and with an aroma that decays a bit as well.

This beer is just straight up boring. Tastes almost identical to a Shiner Bock to me.

Pours brown with a red hue and tan head that is gone in a mini second to a thin, spotty lace skim.
Aroma: Major bread and roasty malts with notes of sweet molasses, raisins and nuts.

Taste: Sweet, syrupy with caramel and molasses and toffee.
Mouthfeell: Thin, most of the aromas seem watered down.

Decent beer, but as craft beers go this one is a bit short, and acts more like a better than average macro. Just not a solid craft brew.
