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 (2360) - 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 !

mtdewa1 (345) - rome, New York, USA - SEP 30, 2014
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 (707) - 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 (4543) - 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 (2247) - Juneau, Alaska, 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.

kerenmk (2549) - 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 (6326) - 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 (603) - 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 that’s hardly surprising. Nicely drinkable, overall.

beerandbeyond (703) - ISRAEL - MAY 26, 2014
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 (3524) - Lewisburg, 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. Can’t say, outside of the color, I’m getting much of the stylistic characteristics one assures comes with a brown ale. If I wanted a pale ale, I would have bought one.
