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

Lukaduke (1992) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Pours a clean brown color with a finger of foam. The nose is citrus pine and round malts. The palate is the same with nice balance between hop notes and malty sweet undertones. Restrained and lighthanded and highly drinkable. Nice bitterness cleans up the finish !

kerenmk (2162) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 22, 2014
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.

DSG (5614) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle. Better Beer Of The Month Club. Hazy Dark amber with a big frothy beige head. Aroma of citric, floral and piney hops, malt and a caramel note. Sweetish malt flavor, slightly caramelly, a bit biscuity, with some citric and piney hops, a toasty note and a moderately bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Not really a Brown Ale, but a pleasant beer nonetheless.

ThreeCats (554) - ISRAEL - JUN 2, 2014
Clear Mahogany with a big foamy head. Aroma citrusy and crisp, with a caramel undertone. Taste fairly hoppy, crisp, malty but still a little hop balanced. Some caramel notes and something woody. Probably too hoppy and too high ABV for the style, but then again this is an "American" brown ale, so thatís hardly surprising. Nicely drinkable, overall.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Hazy light brown with a decent beige head. Mild nutty nose, with biscuit, bread and earthy hops. Malty, some caramel, nuts, mud, medium bitterness and bready notes. Slightly over carbonated, medium bodied, balanced and overall OK.

DiarmaidBHK (3347) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle from Half time. Pours dark brown with a half inch of khaki foam that disappears very quickly. Has some citrus on the nose. The taste is also fairly hop forward. Canít say, outside of the color, Iím getting much of the stylistic characteristics one assures comes with a brown ale. If I wanted a pale ale, I would have bought one.

ironbike1 (14) - New York, USA - APR 7, 2014
Pours very dark amber color. Has a very strong nose of hops which is unusual for a brown ale. Taste is strong hops mixed with caramel notes. Overall very drinkable and different take on a brown ale.

DruncanVeasey (7097) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2014
Keg, The Pony (UES), 19/02/14. Orange flecked ruby with a low off white top. Aroma of root veg, slight fart, malt loaf, cruciferous green. Flavour comprises cherry boiled sweet, some nutty raw broccoli-like hints; grilled pepper. Bitter but uninteresting finish without development. Cold and bland.
