What are you nuts? This is one of the best beers ever created. I sincerely urge you to throw this review out, buy yourself a pint at a “different” bar, and then reevaluate. This is my beer of choice when I actually find a bar that serves it, and trust me it can taste dramatically different from one place to the next.

I actually ordered this just the other day on tap at a Uno’s in Maryland. It wasn’t bad at all. Very enjoyable, if light, brown ale. It was missing, in my opinion, some of the more molasses and smoke flavors I expect in the style. I’m not a very good judge though, as when it comes to brown ales, generally, I prefer Belgians and IPAs. No, I’m not nuts. đŸ˜‰
