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

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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at Blue Water Seafood Company. Amber-brown pour with a thin ring head of suds that leaves light lace. The nose is of malt and legumes. The flavor is similar: Malty upfront, with some legumes and almonds settling in mid-palate. It finishes with just a hint of yeast and a lingering almond skin bitter. The mouthfeel is clean and refreshing, with a good substantial body. Nice brown here, especially for a style that is not my first choice. Enjoyably delicious.

Draft at Merrimon. I am told this is not boogie down brown. Taste is a bit sweeter than what I remember of boogie, matches up everywhere else.
