look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Serving type: On-tap

Appearance: That of your standard brown ale, not a lot of head on it and has a medium brown color.

Smell: Sweet but no distinguishable aroma.

Taste: Exactly what you expect from a brown ale. A malty, not hoppy, sweet flavor.

Mouthfeel: That great taste that's almost like a better, cleaner New Castle sticks with you for a little while extra making you want another sip after it fades.

Overall: This is an above average beer. The head on it isn't so great and the smell, I wish was stronger but it tastes great and has a really good presence about it.

Bottled on date is December 11, 2013. Pours out to a quickly dissipating head and pale brown color. Aroma is very weak, there is some honey and nuts in there. Flavor is very subtle and laid back, reminds me of a homebrew with a bit of a twang and slight oxidation note of cardboard. Not bad but not good either. No real fresh malt or hops evident. Balanced bitter and sweet so another plus for being on style. Mouthfeel is light and CO2 is appropriately restrained. Overall a boring brown, drinkable but not exciting in the least. Think Southern Pecan without the pecans. Beats a Newcastle, though!
