Very clingy, thin beige head, watery cola colored. Yeasty, milky aroma. Tangy, amateurish, overbrewed hops, out of balance. No nuts, no fruit. Like water that’s been run through an old coffee filter. Their red actually came off as a better brown.

tap at Mad Anthony Oktoberfest - Pours clear dark amber with a thin head. It has a very mild malt aroma. The flavor is caramel malt with just a touch of hops. It has a good light hops and caramel finish. The overall result is a decent session brew.

This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of medium sized mostly lasting off-white colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body was transparent softly carbonated and dark ruby red brown in color. It had a medium strength malt hop aroma with a mild brown note. The mouth feel was smooth and somewhat flat with a mild lingering malt finish that was mildly tingly. The flavor contained notes of malt and hops.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2004 Utterly delicious! Rather sweet and mild with probably not much alcohol. I could drink gallons of this stuff. Not a hop in sight. Fantastic! Quite malty. Looking forward to more during 2005's annual Indy pilgrimage.

Nitro. Dark brown. Nitro head makes it somewhat interesting, but not enough. Smooth clocolate taste with subtle nuts, malt and caramel. It did have a gritty finish. Way too light at 4.4%

From a sampler: This beer is a dark brown color with a medium thick beige head. Thin, sticky lacing. The aroma is very nutty with a touch of brown sugar. Very smooth body with a tasty roasted coffee, nut and malt blend. The only downside is the flavor is not very lasting. The finish is nutty and has a lightly bitter aspect to it. This is a pretty good Brown.
