Sampled at Lansdale Brew Fest 2011. A crisp brown ale with the typical roasted malt and caramel malt flavor. Well carbonated and a hint of fruitiness. Easy drinking. A good beer for football season.

On tap @ Beer Temple. Clear brown color, with nice beige head. Lots of fruit in the nose, notably red fruit, and some sugar. Flavor is nutty & fruity, hardly sweet. Medium bodied. Not exactly what I’d expect from a brown ale, but quite nice.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Pours with a clear bronze to light brown body with a small, off-white head. Aromas are fruity, estery, sweet, brown sugar, a touch of herbalness and some caramel. Flavors are sweet (too sweet), cotton candy, vanilla, marzipan, caramel and lightly nutty. Medium bubbles, lighter bodied. Quite boring to be honest.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Keg at North Bar, Leeds. Pour is deep brown with striking orangey highlights. Nose is slight coffee, chocolate, hint of berry, maybe something herbal. Very interesting. Palate is dry yet rich, with a lovely long nuttiness. Hints of fruit and something almost sour. Finish is slightly bitter, slightly roasty. Really interesting brown ale, not sure why it isn’t higher rated.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Pours a translucent dark red with an off white film atop.
Aroma: Caramel, fruity yeast, burnt toast and light nail polish remover.
Taste: Fruity house yeast, burnt toast, minimal hop spice.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, modest carbonation. Much thinner than Porter or OSA.
Overall: Not too shabby, nothing like a typical American Brown, but more like Porter with 25% of the malt taken away.
