One day later on write up. This looked good, smelled good, and first tastes were fine. Not my style but was looking forward to a new Natty on tap. But it left kind of a different taste in my mouth, I can't quite describe, maybe a little bitter. Please don't be dissuaded by my opinion, give it a try if you get the chance. I will probably give it another chance.

A: Pours a translucent dark brown with ruby red tones. Big light brown head that settles away. No visible carbonation.

S: Not much on the nose here. A hint malt sweetness and dry crackers.

T: Interesting malt sweetness that's reminds me of cola. A subtle sweetness, definitely not overpowering that is balanced nicely by a long, semi dry and nutty.

M: Mild carbonation and smooth.

D: Highly drinkable brown ale with a nice subtle malt sweetness and the expected dry finish. Overall a very nice brown ale.

Poured a brown body with one finger head and a mild malt aroma of caramel and toffee, possibly some hazelnuts. Smooth body, light sweetness (not overboard with the sweetness), finish a little bready/dry on finish which adds a little balance to the beer. Overall, a simply and enjoyable brown ale.

poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a faint aroma of malt and coffee
Appearance- This is a very dark brown (near black) brown ale.
Taste- Has a mild roasted malt flavor that is not overpowering.
Palate- This is a medium bodied brew with mild carbonation and a thin texture
Overall- Not a bad brown ale, I would drink this again if I was out and wanted a brown ale.
