Style: American Brown Ale

What makes this beer different: Its just average

Will I be drinking this again: Prob not

Grade: B

1/23/2010: Damn I just realized I have a good bit of Christmas Beer I still need to get through. Anyone else notice you get a backlog of beers pretty quick during the fall and winter months? It’s like I am a squirrel stocking up for a long cold winter or something, and beer is my only means of survival.

Overall this beer is pretty decent, but to me I want a Christmas beer to smell/taste “Christmasy.” The smell was mostly caramel malt, and a bit of alcohol. The taste was a typical brown ale, but no signs of actual Christmas type spice. Also the alcohol was not masked very well, kind of surprising for a 5.60% beer. Pretty average all around. At the price I will probably not be drinking again.

Funny Picture of the day: Sooo thats what happened to the dinosaurs?.
