Nice drinkable brown, not to complex but real "familiar".

No bottling date. Probably a couple months old judging by similar bottle stock at the store.

A: Pours a very nice dark brown. Good sized airy light brown head. Decent head retention. No real sign of lacing whatsoever.

S: A little but of caramel and a touch of nuttiness and toast. Maybe a hint of butter?

T: More of the same. A bunch of caramel with a touch of toast. Some nuttiness, especially in the middle. Swear it tastes like butter on the back end. Some diacetyl (sp?) maybe?

M: Fairly light but smooth.

O: A very simple brown ale. Super low ABV, definitely meant to be a session brown ale. As such the flavors are pretty subtle but honestly not bad. There is that butter flavor which is not overpowering and honestly isn't horrible but it's definitely a bit off. It's not bad overall but nothing I'd seek out again.

This is perhaps the most perfect Brown Ale to ever grace my tastebuds. Honestly, the only thing negative about this beer at all is that it is slightly too carbonated.

More like a stout than the typical brown ale with deep notes of chocolate and coffee. And yet it is subtly drinkable. Unlike a heavy stout, I could easily drink 4-5 of these session brown ales back to back.

Nice dark color, somewhat like cola, with a light tan head that leaves lacing on the glass. Funky nutty nose, some leafy and caramel notes, also a hint of meat broth. Taste expands and opens, with caramel and darker flavors, perhaps some mushroominess, and though it ends a bit flat, it is smooth, as the label promises. Clean, very slightly astringent mouthfeel. Hard to believe this is only 3.8% ABV. I wish I could get this closer to where I live. A delight. Bottle date reads 061716/476; enjoyed on 26 July 2016.
