On tap at GABF 2011. Pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head. The aroma is rich roast, some coffee and hops. The flavor is a very sweet mix of toasted malts, some citra hops, light chocolate, earthy. Quite hoppy for a brown, but not very bitter. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 ounce bottle - $3.99 at Olde Crabapple Bottle Shoppe in Alpharetta, Georgia.
Cryptic brewing bottle code translates: August 22, 2011.
Appearance: Pours a ruby-brown body with noted clarity and crowned with a frothy, foamy, beige head.
Smell: Dusky dark maltiness, with modest notes scented of toast, brown sugar, and roast. A sliver of raisin-like fruitiness. Fairly mild hop accents of citrus and dried grasses.
Taste: Toasted bread crusts with some light sweetish hints of brown sugar and dark caramel. Light dark fruitiness. Mild inclusions of molasses and roasted pecans. Lightly citrusy hops with some grassy dry-hopping accents. Even fainter hint of pine bark. Lightly bitter. Dry, malty finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: While definitely not the boldest brown on the block, it’s fairly refreshing and pleasant enough, though a notch less alcohol would be appreciated. Still pretty good, though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[keg at the Euston Tap, London] Deep reddish brown, thin head. Dribbled out of the font so was probably on its last legs. Malt, brown sugar, raisins on the nose. Got that classic Anchor rising sweetness as you take a taste. More fruit than usual in an American brown, the Demerara sugar comes in and whisks this away. Having said that, I quite enjoyed it

Draft. Interesting beer. Not really sure where it’s headed. Get a lot of conflicting milk chocolate and citrus hops.

650 ml bottle from bevmo. Pours a chestnut brown color with a medium foamy khaki head that slowly fades to a fine film. The aroma is robust with roasted malts, brown sugar, and caramel.

The finish is long and dry. Overall: A very nice little brown.
