ChainGangGuy (4489) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Appearance: Pours a clear, medium brown body with a slight, slender white head. Smell: A nose of bread, barley, and a dusting of cocoa powder backed ever so slightly by hints of dried herbs. Taste: Lightly sweet, toasty malts, with some herbal hop tones akin to a brewed cup of tea. Then, some late-arriving sweetish hints of caramel and cocoa. Very, very minor touch of citrus fruit. Lightly bitter. Drying, but elements of the darker malts leaning towards cocoa on the finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Overall: It’s okay, decent for a light, earthy brown ale.

Light brown pour with a slight haze. Aroma is nutty, citrus and roasty, One of the more aromatic beers I tried that day @ AP. Bready, toasted malts, light roast and toffee

Tap@ AP. Light brown color. Aroma is light scent of malt. Thin textured, tastes of chocolate malt, a bit of earth, mild bitterness. Perfect for pizza.

Braudog (5975) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Draft at the brewpub on Coxe. Yep, it’s Brown. Mellow and creamy. Like a lot of the beers at this place, it seems a bit too thin, unfortunately. Just a hint of a brown ale lurking in here. (#4297, 10/5/2011)

Pours brown from tap with a thin head and a bit of effervescence. Not a lot on the nose or the tongue. Meh.

magsinva (950) - Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Tap at Asheville Brewing - pours a brownish orange with a thin white head. Aroma is a bit nutty. Taste is mild a little smoky. Palate is a little dry. Overall, there is nothing wrong with it, but it is forgettable.

Draft, pulled through a randall with apples, nutmeg and cinnamon. Very creative! Aroma of molasses. Taste is like brown roasted apple juice. Interesting.
