This is an all malt, single hop brown ale. The citra hop was utilized in this recipe. 6.0% alcohol.
Rich and malty aroma. Hazelnutty with molasses, smells sweet, though you can easily detect the hops in the aroma as well. Malty flavors out of the gate--nutty with plenty of brown sugar. There is, however, a distince citric line running right through the beer.
I will say it's kind of flat, which I didn't love. The roast is nice and not harsh. Herbal with some sugary sweetness followed by a lemony answer. That persistent lemony, hoppy streak started to remind me of Lemon Pledge by the end of the beer. I've never tasted Pledge, but if you can imagine a flavor like that smell, you have it. Overall, good beer. Distinct and different and I think old Gottlieb would have been proud.
