I had the pleasure of drinking this unassuming beer at the Single Cut taproom recently. I believe this to be one of their sleepers. If I'm not mistaken it's one of their longest-running offerings (since day one maybe?) so while you don't get the buzz and hype that a seasonal might bring, with Dean Mahogany Ale you're just getting a solid, hoppy, delicious amber.

It looked great in the glass. Quite literally mahogany in color with a cream-colored head.

The aroma was wonderful, almost surprising. I can't explain it, I felt like it should have smelled toasted or something because it's almost a dark-beer, but it was a bit fruity if that makes any sense.

It's always hard for me to describe mouthfeel, unless I experience something truly offensive it's just not something I'm very good at determining. This beer was pleasant in my mouth, it was smooth and served at the right temperature, so I'll leave it at that.

This is definitely a pint I could drink multiples of, and I certainly did. The Single Cut lineup can be a tad daunting, perhaps even ambitious, but do not overlook this one, I think it's worth serious consideration as one of their best.

On tap at the Iron Vine in Peekskill, NY.

Typical presentation, mild malty sniff.

This a quite sturdy malted up brew. Loads of caramel, maple and malty goodness. Tasty and well worth a try if you see it in your local

Enjoyed on tap at Brouwerij Lane and another introduction to a new local brewery. Pacific Northwest hopped. A light reddish body, with a little head and lace. Big carbonation. Getting yeast and hops, also a little funky. Drinkable, not what I would expect from the style, still for me drinkable.

On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a clear light brownish-red, with a quarter inch head, and a good amount of lacing.

This ones smells pretty vaguely "red," some toasted bread, a bit of northwest-style piney hops, and some caramel.

This is definitely not Singlecut's best work, unfortunately. It just doesn't do a whole lot to stand out much. There's the typical malt build for this style- some toasted bread and caramel, that's about it. The hop flavor is pretty weak- there's very light piney hops- no citrus flavors or other fruit flavors- just a kind of weak generic bitterness. Just sort of uninteresting, unfortunately.

This is medium bodied, with a crisp, bready mouthfeel, and a normal level of carbonation.

Not Singlecut's best. You can't win 'em all.
