COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A robust brown ale that drinks like an IPA. Enticing citrusy hop aromas lead into a rich and complex palate of caramelly, nutty, and toasty malts perfectly balanced by a big full hop flavor.

This bottled brew from rbsg 22 poured a small sized head of foamy light brown colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation hazy dark brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of brown malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

On tap at Old Chicago. Pours a cloudy dark brown color with a thick beige head that lingers. Nice aroma of floral and citrus hops mixed with caramel and roasted malt. Wow this beer is tasty. Lots of oily fresh hop flavor mixed with robust brown ale maltiness. The hops and malt flavors stay through the finish and linger. Nicely balanced all the way. This beer is not very complex but it's still a great beer. Love it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 13, 2012
Draft at Seven Monks Taproom, Traverse City. Murky, deep orange-brown body, thin tan head. Light toasty, leafy nose. Body with toasty, bitter fall leaves, tannic, but with light brown sugar sweetness. Quite good.

On tap at the Hopcat. Dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is a good mix of a brown ale and hops with citrus, caramel and mild nuttiness. Taste of dark roasted malts, citrus, orange and mild nuttiness. Mild bitterness on the back end, overall a quality brew. Hops give life to brown ales!
