Draft at PA Spring Fest. Filtered orange-brown color. Mellow smooth brown malt aroma. Balanced, medium bodied, lots of nutty flavor. Pretty well done. Malt really carries the beer. Delicate on the palate.

Cheapdark sent this one my way, thanks Dennis. This beer pours with a nice fluffy head and leaves plenty of lace. The color is a lighter brown, seriously.... it’s brown. Aroma is nicely hoppy with a little citrus, some rye bread, and a little nuttiness. Flavor is pretty hoppy at first with some good earthy old world style hops, which is odd because the hoppiness in the aroma was very west coast to me. The beer is very roasty and a little nutty; this is pretty darned robust for a brown ale. There is an odd sort of astringent character that keeps this from being great, but there is plenty going on here, particularly for the style.

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of chocolate, slight wood, walnuts, cardboard, slight brown sugar, and grains. Poured copper-brown in color with a small tan head that diminished quickly but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Clear. Not sparkling. A few tiny particles throughout. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of malts, tar, wood, light nuts, slight cocoa, leather, light roasted malts, charcoal, some hops, and a hints of caramel and vanilla. Medium body. Lightly chalky texture. Average carbonation. Lightly sweet, malt, nuts, hop, and charcoal finish is a bit chalky.

12 oz bottle. Pours a deep coppery borwn with a nice foamy lasting head and nice spidery lace. Aroma is nutty toffeee, and chocolate, with an almost typical mid pa yeast character that I get from some Troegs and ABC beers slightly fruity aroma- english yeast. Flavor is nutty, leather, toffee, light brown bittersweet chocolate, herbs, and a bit of green hops which work nicely. Dry lightly roasty and toffee finish with a slight fruity ester profile. Pretty good, and easy to drink- a bit different but still a good brown ale.

12 oz bottle thanks to machfive55. Pours a murky brown color with a small white head. A light aroma is caramel malts, toasted notes and some hops. A nutty toasted flavor; light hops in the finish and lots of toasted malts. Slick and watery mouthfeel. Light but decent. An OK brew.

cheap (3939) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Good smooth ropey beer aroma, attractive and appetizing. Looks somewhat like root beer. No visible carbonation. Head fades to a froth. On the palate there is decent carbonation. Has a bitter hop character that lingers for a while after each slug. Finish is hoppy leather or sumthin. Hangs for a while after the finish.

LinusStick (2814) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2009
A delicious brown ale. Aroma was roasted malt and toffee. Very full. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a one finger almost tan head. Taste was very unique. Very nutty. Cashew and peanut with a bitter roasted malt aftertaste. I don’t know how this beer can be so nutty without nuts being used in the process. Nice carbonation.

DocLock (7682) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2009
Draft at CAH. Poured deep brown with off-tan white head. Nose is malty, with some peaty, almond, toffee, and mild hop notes. Not very complex, with initial malt followed up by some earthy cashew notes, hops, and some grainy notes. Meh.

kramer (4856) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2009
On tap, Harrisburg location. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small beige head that retained as a thin film. The nose is very lightly nutty with a bit of graininess and a weird soapy note. The flavor is pretty thin with a lot of husky grain and toasted malt, very light bitterness, rather short and forgettable finish. Light bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation. A below average Brown Ale.
