This is a brown ale, so hopheads please strap yourselves in and prepared to be bored. Like the majority of brown ales, it leans towards a malty flavor. However, this has a nice presence of chocolate in it. It's definitely better then Newcastle, although it's only available in Wisconsin, so good luck refining your tastes if you live any place where "betcha" isn't a word. It's plain, but it's a finer version of plain. And it's a big proponent of drinking "indigenously," i.e. buy from the micros near where you live, which I support. Why send my money to California when there are breweries near me that need my business? Anyway, move to Wisconsin and buy this.
