This was yet again, a beer my dad dropped off for me to try. I’m not even sure where he picked this one up, but I’m going to have to find out. I really enjoyed this beer! I was so surprised at how much I liked it. The bottle itself was very cool, and the label was pretty thick, with a great description of what to expect. This is definitely a beer to “enjoy in the evening or during a cool day”. Then again, I’m really falling in love with brown ales this fall. This brown ale made me fall even more in love with them. My favorite brown ale this season has been Sierra Nevada’s Tumbler, but this one may have stolen my heart. It’s pretty bitter for a brown ale, but the hop loving girl I am enjoyed that very much! I’ll definitely be keeping my eyes open for more Calicraft beer in the future. If you spot a bottle, give it a try!
