I tried this at the Pie Factory in Florence, AL. It poured a clear mahogany amber with no head and no lace. The scent had caramel malt tones. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with sweet bread like base. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a decent beer.

First had Astronut poured from 12-oz. can into faceted mug. Not a complicated beer, but well-balanced between roast malts, nuttiness and hoppy finish.

Personally, this falls into the category of "yet another unimpressive Amerian brown ale." Drinkable, with nothing offensive about it, but nothing that compels me to purchase again. It's fine at best.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear dark brown color with a large tan head. The aroma is roasted malt and brown sugar. The taste is malt driven.

Fantastic mouthfeel and body. Nicely roasted malt with coffee bean and toffee undertones - one of the better brown ales I've had in a while.

Poured on tap at local bottle shop.

A: Pours a deep dark brown with almost no light penetration. Two finger creamy white head some with fair sticky lacing.

S: Caramel sweetness and maybe a hint of nuts.

T: Butterscotch and caramel with pecan and walnut undertones. Very creamy. Sweet but nicely balanced.

M: Very full bodied without being heavy. Nice creamy texture on the tongue.

O: A quality brown ale. I enjoyed this one quite a bit and looking forward to RR's official launch party this week!
