i put this one squarely into the new and booming session brown category. its a thin but flavorful brew, a bit one dimensional, but highly approachable and i say session because its more than simply low alcohol, its easy drinking, well carbonated, and not particularly demanding on the drinker. big head in the glass, muted lighter brown colored brew with a nose of fresh chocolate malt and a bit of sweetness to it. its surprisingly dry in taste though, but there is a hint of sweeter butterscotch type grain flavor in the middle of this, and very little of the darker roasted barley. not sure why robust is used n the name, its quite a mild brew on the whole. a hint of dried fruit before the finish, and not any more hops than are required for balance. the lighter body is nice when this is real cold, but it doesnt warm up super well. i liked this a lot in a party context, i could drink them all night and it beats the crap out of macro beer, but there really isnt enough here for me to seek it out again.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into shaker pint glass.
A: Pours a slightly reddish brown hue with 2 inches of frothy light tan head. Good retention.
S: Nice roasted caramel malt aroma...but not much else.
T: Nice roasted caramel malt with some toasted grains and a hint of a grassy note.
M: Light body. Dry and slightly bitter as per style. Mildly sweet...almost creamy.
D: Slightly above average for style. Not bad, but just a pretty basic brew.
