3.69/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a mug, the appearance was a soft brown color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated at a moderate pace. Sly lace. The aroma takes in some chocolate, caramel and a light nuttiness at the end. The flavor leaned towards the sweet side. Soft malty aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Soft carbonation. ABV felt fine. Overall, good brown ale for the most part.

poured from growler into imperial pint glass

A-clear mahogany colored with about a finger of head that leaves a little lacing as it fades away

S-some carmel malt with some faint citrus hops

T-taste follows the smell some carmel malt with the citrus hop that leans almost to pine hop on the finish

M-fairly light bodied but well carbonated

O-for a brewery that has been open for less than a month a very good beer that shows some excellent potential for the brewery and I look forward to drinking more of their beers
