look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottle poured in a pint mug.

Appearance: Dark Reddish Amber with a thick off-white head when poured aggressively. The lacing dissipates fairly quickly around the glass.

Smell: Roasted Malts, Brown Sugar, hazelnut, bready, earthy. It is very sweet to the nose.

Taste: The taste follows the nose. It is fairly sweet. Not bitter at all. It has a unique blend of a caramel-like malty flavor, Nuts, brown sugar, sweet spices, and earthy yeast combination with bready notes. The taste kind of reminds me of a light cola.

Mouthfeel: Thin bodied with little carbonation.

Overall, this is a well balanced beer. It's pretty sweet and thin and it goes down very smooth. This would be a perfect session brew. Not my favorite from SweetWater, but nonetheless this is a very good brew.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

bottle into Duvel glass

appearance: dark mahogany with a hint of amber, bubbly 1 finger white head

smell: bready, sweet malt, molasses, hint of caramel, hazelnut, apple cider

taste: some subtle bready notes, somewhat roasty malt backbone, the taste ends too soon, leaves you hanging and wanting more. With that said, this is a highly drinkable session brown ale to me, not huge in the flavor department but high in smoothness and drinkability. Perhaps too balanced, needs a prominent flavor.

mouthfeel: not much carbonation, thick creamy full bodied feel

overall: An average brown ale, highly drinkable. Non craft beer enthusiats would love this, very accesible flavor profile, not a whole lot happening. Great for a hot summer day, would buy again but no need to seek this out or anything.
