3.83/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Medium brown filtered with 3 fingers of beige head.

Smells of toasted malts, toffee and caramel.

The taste follows the nose with random sour and acrid notes.

Medium light body with moderate carbonation.

I got this in NC and am drinking it in Redding, July 17th, 2020.

12 oz. can poured into pint tumbler.
Look - Practically perfect brown transparent body, attainable off white head fades out after a calm pour.
Smell - Toasty malts, fresh, nice presence
Taste - sweet roasted classic dark malts flavor, clean and full flavor
Feel - light and crisp, clean,
Overall - Balsam Brown is very much one of my favorite brown ales, light, crisp and clean, but plenty of good flavor.

On tap in Hendersonville, NC.

Poured dark brown with a fine tan head and ample lacing.
Rich medium malts flavor and aroma with some darker malts too. Straightforward but very well crafted.
Medium body and medium+ carbonation.
