Pours reddish brown with a finger nail head that leaves no lacing and recedes almost immediately. Subtle nose of brown sugar and bready malts. Taste is a malt forward amber- bready malt, brown sugar, and a grassy finish. Taste feels half finished, like they forgot to add something. Medium body and light carbonation with a weird finish and no aftertaste.
It's a good start but underwhelming and forgettable "blah" amber. The finish is gummy and unappetizing. I expected more.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a deep Amber with a ruby hue, small foamy white head reduces to a film on top, leaving nothing behind

S- green vegetal aroma up front with some singed brown sugar and toasted bready malt, light grassy and herbal malt

T- vegetal flavor follows the aroma, reminiscent of beef stew. Toasted bread crust malt with some brown sugar notes, grassy and herbal hop finish

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that continues to the finish

O- a little off puting at times, but remains pretty drinkable

Rich, full bodied dark amber ale with hints of maple and light citrus. Mild and enjoyable. ABV a bit high but definitely could be a session brew.
