COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beneath the cool facade of the warrior, a red-hot flame of intensity, determination and, yes, anger burns. So it is with this unpredictable Brown Ale: fleeting malty sweetness and warmth hide complexity, a barely controlled bitterness, and, naturally, a bit of an angry edge. Youíve really got yourself into a situation now. "Anger is energy. Use it, then let it go." Kampai!

hayduke (4485) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 21, 2010
From a 12 oz bottle from the Portland Street Market in Klamath Falls, Oregon. Poured red amber with a foamy light tan head and moderate lacing. Nose of roasted malts with some light chocolate and floral hops. Medium body and smooth mouthfeel. Flavor malts and chocolate and quite a bit of hoppy bitterness. Finish is bitter. Quite good.

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown, modest offwhite head, brilliant clarity. Nose is nuts, roast, chocolate, caramel. Flavor is pecans and almonds, slight caramel and toffee, medium hop bitterness with light grassy flavor, finishes sweet. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A rather unique brown ale with surprising depth and complexity, definitely makes me eager to try more of Bairdís offerings.

Bottle. Pours muddy dark brown. Nose and taste of toffee, fig, brown sugar and light molasses. Dryish finish.

Stew41 (1904) - Phuket, THAILAND - NOV 11, 2010
Souped up brown but lots of fun. Has a good lick of aniseed and fruit cake running right through the palate. Almost sweet and not really traditional. But sometimes brown ale needs a lift like this. Tangy minerals to finish.

bluevegie (3071) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 5, 2010
Lasting light tan head on a browny amber body. Mix of hops and malts on the aroma with the taste very similar, very enjoyable for a brown ale.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 22, 2010
[355ml bottle, Tanakaya, Meijiro, Tokyo] Full-bodied in the mouth, pours a decent dark reddish brown with a peaky tan head. Quite pungent malty aroma, with more than a hint of booze and some sweetness. Not overpowering on the palate but is really nice. Bittersweet caramel flavours with a dry finish. Really good - rewards you the more of it you have [12112007]

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 19, 2010
Draft at Ushi Tora (Tokyo). A hazy brown pour. Juicy malt, ever so slightly medicinal. Some hops come through to balance it out, but I wouldnít have minded seeing a little bit more.

Crit (3768) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2010
Brown ales arent supposed to be this massively hopped, so much so, you canít even notice the malt.

shigaleale (20) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 31, 2010
Bottle at HashigoZake. Dark brown with nice head in Barid glass. Malty, burnt caramel sweet, sharp hop aroma. Thin sweet layer on the big hop bitterness - earthy+citrus? Caramel? probably from the combination of earthiness and the sweetness. Pretty balanced flavour. not too big, not too thin body, in the middle.

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 22, 2010
360ml bottle from 16th St.Liquor in West Vancouver. Pours a dark amber with decent tan head. Aroma is certainly vaguely malty with a tiny hint of sweetness. Again, like other Baird beers Iíve had, thereís a hint of perfume. Taste is most certainly bitter and "angry" but itís a welcomed anger...kind of like having a good arguement with the wife, seeing that twinkle in her eye and knowing the make up sex will be fantastic. Very good beer.
