This version of an American Brown Ale does not disappoint. Upfront, there are moderate caramel and light toffee characters that cap off a noticeably biscuity and slightly crackery malt nose. A light nuttiness rounds out an earthy hop quality followed by a touch of floral notes underneath. The flavor is evenly balanced with a slightly sweet finish and an underlying mineral note in the aftertaste. Some sweetness resides in the mouth after the finish, leaving an impression of being a bit sticky. There is an absence of chocolate and no roast component. While this dark malt component was expected, it was not missed; the flavor complexity more than makes up for its dearth of ingredients. However, the beer is lighter, color-wise, than most other brown ales – in the area of tarnished copper rather than mahogany brown. The body is a little on the lighter side too, leaving you feeling a little flat. Otherwise, this is an approachable beer with harmonious flavor components that please the palate overall. This would be a great beer for cooler weather, especially if you find yourself outside.
