Appears a ruby bronw hue with a light tan head, leaves behind tiny flecks. Poured at Piper's Pub at the perfect serving temp. Aroma has roasted malts with floral herbal hop presence, but mainly a nice caramelized sugar in the base malt. So far, an excellent representative for new craft breweries in Western PA. Flavor brings out malts with caramelized sugars blended well with a roasted nut character and herbal hop notes that collide beautifully. Best brown ale I've had in quite sometime definitely a winner. Motuhfeel is medium bodied with even carbonation slick hop oils nothing cloying easy drinking Helltown ales. Overall the type of beer I could drink in number excellent brown ale from Mt. Pleasant, PA.

Pours a cloudy dark brown, with a small head that dissipated instantly. Grabbed this straight from the brewery garage from a growler straight into a tulip glass.

It was extremely fresh with a small amount of carbonation. Very drinkable with a toasted nut, caramel and light coffee flavor. The taste did not linger but the coffee essence continued throughout. This goes down way to fast and tastes too good! I could probably drink the whole growler (if I could stand-up). This could easily become one of my favorites, if the draft version at the local pubs tastes as good as this.

Draft poured into shaker pint


A: deep caramel color can almost see through it but not quite not much head


S: Sugary, sweet toffee a little nutty a little roast


M:  fairly thin pretty standard for a brown ale but this almost seems watery


O: while a solid beer and one you can sit and session it really isn't mind boggling either, you want something lighter but with a pleasant but forgettable taste grab one.

Darker than expected, very dark red held up to a light.

Smells a little roasty, malty, nutty. Certainly seems that an English yeast was used.

Tastes of caramel, minimal coffee, slight sweetness.

Lighter on the carbonation side, very drinkable/session-able. Very smooth

For a brown ale this is very good, would buy again.

16 oz glass at Brunzies bar at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Not much lacing. Beer has a distinct sweet taste to it like an English Brown Ale should. Goes down smooth with a neutral aftertaste. Enjoyable beer.
