STYLE: Brown Ale
APPEARANCE: Clear chestnut with reddish highlights
HEAD: Thick tan head that sticks around for awhile
LACING: Thin, but sticky lacing
NOSE: Rich, caramel malt, a well-rounded fruit aroma, and a faint, but distinct nuttiness
TASTE: As the nose implies, the malt takes center stage with a nice, sweet molasses/caramel rush up front. The middle has a slightly vinous, fruity flavor followed by a baked bread/nut finish. Neither too bold nor too bland.
MOUTHFEEL: Medium bodied with excellent carbonation
DRINKABILITY: This is an absolute session beer. As drinkable in the dead of winter as it is in the dog days of summer. Refreshing but full-flavored and with that nice, nutty flavor profile setting it apart from the rest of the low-ABV Brown Ale pack.
RATING: 3 Hops
