Beaver-Tail Brown is our American-style brown ale- despite its dark mahogany, color this beer is crisp and hoppy, due to a generous Centennial dry-hop.

Foxbush (1832) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 29, 2015
12 oz bottle Another beer for the AOPD beers each month The ale poured a clear brown to mahogany color with an off-white head and modest lacing. The aroma of floral hops and spruce. The flavor was more complex with citrus hops and caramel malts all blended with a slightly biscuit-like taste. The ale had a medium body with average carbonation. This is an excellent brown ale with a moderately bitter finish.

Noticeable hoppy aroma. Taste is hop forward with some malt balance. More hoppy than most Browns. Palate is watery and not the much malt for a brown. Not too balance and definitely a watery brown. Nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beer of month club offering. Pours a slightly murky light brown. Nose is more floral, citrus than other brown ales - and no malt/nuttiness. Taste of some citrus, a touch of nuttiness, and an almost sour finish. Different than typical brown ale but decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Aroma is citrusy and nutty with toasted malts. Taste is mild hops, nuts, coffee and citrus. Very nice version of a brown ale. A little over carbonated for my taste.

sudomorph (1095) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours a near clear, deep caramel with a large, off white head. Aroma has pleasant/ notes of citrus, pine, a bit of resin, and very dainty roast. Taste is balanced. Pine, citrus, and resin at the beginning then hunts of roast, then into a citrus, pine finish. Almost like a nice APA. Medium body and carbonation. Clean and refreshing in the mouth with a big, dry finish. Overall a nice, American brown. Like a good APA mixed with hints of roasted malts.

markwise (5195) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2014
On draft at Adirondack. Pours a mostly clear amber with a creamy off-white head. Nose is toasted malts, hints of coffee, and some nuts. Flavor is similar with toasted malts, slight coffee in the mid and mild nuts going into the finish. Dries out on the back end with coffee going in and out the whole time. Light to medium in body and a nice brown overall.

Bulk_Carrier (3884) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a decent looking dark brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light stringy lacing glossing along the glass. The smell had a nice roasty to sweet nutty to caramel maltiness backed up by a light toffee. The taste was mainly sweet with a decent roasty nutty flavoring leading to a dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat subdued. Overall, I say this was a pretty good brown ale well worthy of having again.

Bottle, bbotmc. Murky brown with a thick, frothy, cream-colour head. Yeasty aroma with some toast and dust. Pecan and plastic in the mouth followed by bitterness. Very carbonated, full body and a little nutty aftertaste.
