Cakes (362) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2012
On tap at brewpub. Pours a medium brown color with a small white head. A light aroma is caramel malts, toasted notes and some mildly biytter hops. A nutty toasted flavor; light hops in the finish and lots of toasted malts. Slick and watery mouthfeel. Love that organic thing! Do more of it folks.

Transfer from BA review on 1-27-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – Pours a mahogany brown color with a big and thick cream colored head. The head has a fantastic level of retention, slowly fading to leave a good level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is strongest of a chocolate and caramel smells. Mixed with these are aromas of some roasted malt and a light aroma of a nutty nature. Taste – The beer is drier then I would have expected from the nose. The taste begins with a roasted malt and lighter caramel sweetness. From the initial roasted malt, which creates a base for the taste of the beer, comes an increase in the caramel sweetness and some flavors of brown sugar. These sugar tastes get strongest at the middle and begins fading more toward the end. From the middle to the end, while the sugar flavors are fading, come flavors of nut and some hop flavors of an earthy and herbal flavor come into the taste. These flavors take the taste to its end where they leave a lightly bittered roasted flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the slightly thinner to average side in its creaminess with a carbonation level being rather average. The medium body and carbonation made it rather easy drinking, although a slightly lower level of carbonation may have been more appropriate for the roasted and nutty flavors of the brew. Overall – A decent, not too sweet brown ale with some nice hop flavors. A nice easy drinking brew.

jrodooo5 (998) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Good deep brown pour that has a mocha head that leaves lacing. The aroma has some faint chocolate & roasted notes. The taste has some good unusual depth for a brown - well balanced between chocolate & hops. The body is a touch thin but this beer is drinkable & sessionable. Pretty good!

Theydon_Bois (8294) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2013
Tap at Appalachian, Collegeville, 29/11/13. Dark mahogony brown. Nose is caramel, brown sugars, dark malt notes, pinch of cocoa powder. Taste comprises cake mix, brown sugar, dark toffee fudge. Medium body, fine carbonation, dry finale with a sweet note or two. So - so, drinkable and representative of a dull style in my opinion - others are of course are available !

Love that it is organic, like that there are some hoppy notes (not usually present in a standard brown ale) and appreciate that it is very drinkable. I’d order this again.

radio_nowhere (796) - Maryland, USA - APR 21, 2013
Wife ordered this draft at Gettysburg brewpub, I grabbed a few sips. Served in a pint glass, reddish-brown color with off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt; hints of nuttiness, chocolate and earthy/peppery hops. Taste brings out some more nuttiness and roastiness. Light body, medium carbonation, dry, clean finish. An alright brown ale, straight forward and not much to it.

Reddish brown with a nutty malty nose. Dry, palate with a hint of cocoa and more nuts. Decent but forgettable.
