Beer of the Week: LoneRider Sweet Josie Brown

Raw Data: LoneRider Brewing Sweet Josie Brown Ale.  Brewed in Raleigh, NC.  12 oz bottle purchased at Lowe’s Foods, Mebane, NC.

This local favorite fills the glass with mostly clear deep brown hues and a thin khaki head that dissipates rapidly.  The smell is of coffee, caramel, and brown sugar, all in subtle amounts.  The mouthfeel is fairly watery and carbonated, but not to the detriment of the beer.  It’s got a roasty note in there with the coffee flavor that is awesome and balanced with a chocolaty, nutty sweetness and the faintest swift bite.  I’m playing the homer role here…I just love this one.
