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

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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)

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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Aroma of sweet bready malt, floral hops, bitter hops, citrus, and caramel malt. Flavor of jam, light fruits, sweet malt. Ok, a little sweet and boring. It doesn’t really fall into a particular style (and it’s description did not name a style), but I guess amber ale fits best.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beer #8 Asheville trip. Not my favorite. Medium brown, decent head. Light malt aroma. Flavor is just sort of random caramel accented malts and vaguely earthy hops. Didn’t really strike me as a brown. Just sort of hit me as an "ale." Just kind of there.

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