Meh. Lackluster. Kind of a confusing flavor.

4 Brothers Blended Beer Sibling Rivalry

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a nonick or nonic pint glass. You know you can spell it either way and it is correct. This was served chilled...

A) An amber brew with about a finger of soapy looking head. This settled to a dusting, before fading to nothing. Good clarity... These bubble trails aren't quitting.

S) Toasted malt and a slightly floral hops presence. This had a little fruity twang to it. I got this hint of cranberry or cran-apple.

T) That fruity twang on the nose doesn't really carry over as much to the flavor. Probably drinks most like a Red or Vienna. Toasty with a little sweetness. This has adequate hop bitterness, which is herbal, and earthy.

M) Medium to lighter medium body. The carbonation is pretty lively. It finishes dry. The aftertaste was grassy with a little solvent to it.

O) So this is a Red, Blonde, Brown Ale blend. It's interesting... I get more Red characteristics, but that's just me. It was worth a try....

This pours a clear, dark amber color with a slight head. The aroma is full of a malty aroma. The taste is strong with bitterness and has a nutty flavor. There a decent amount of sweetness before finishing with a bitter nutty finish. A rather interesting blend well worth trying.
