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. You’ve really got yourself into a situation now. "Anger is energy. Use it, then let it go." Kampai!

Thisis12ptfont (1051) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Aromas of caramel, roasted toffee and barley. Straight brown in color with a thin foam. Flavors of nuts, roasted caramel and barley. Finish leaves a lingering hazelnut or almond nuttiness. Overall, very interesting take on a brown ale. It is a little watery and there is a slightly odd funk in the back of the palate. Other than that it is pretty good. I’d give this a B- rating.

zenkis (747) - Ogre, LATVIA - JAN 16, 2016
decent malty, light nutty flavored brew. Light sweet, medium body, light to medium carbonation. Not a complex one, rather drinkable, medium range dark malts toasted flavor. Light bitter. A bit sludge like texture.

(Baird Angry Boy Brown Ale) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a big shaker, ABV 7% Dark amber coloured body, mostly clear, with a good sized and thick enough beige head sitting on top, with good retention. Aroma has hops, light caramel and toffee, some orange. Taste also of orange, hops, citrus, tangerine, light malts, toffee. Medium body, good carbonation. Nice and easy to drink, cleanest and the more tasty from the Baird beers I’ve had till now.

33cl bottle on 12-Dec-2015, purchased at De Bierkoning, Amsterdam. ABV 7%. Reddish brown colour with a small white head which dissipates relatively quickly. Aroma of toffee and sweet malt. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Flavour heavy in malt, caramel and hops. Bitter at first but sweetens as the ale warms. A simple flavoursome brown ale.

Sample at Örebro Öl & Whisky 2015. Malty and fruity smell with caramel. Similar taste. A bit onesided and not that interesting but clean.

Hopmaestro (974) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2015
Bottle @ ÖÖWF2015: Aroma is malty, dark caramels, slight chocolates. Taste is like the aroma but you add some raisins in there. Mid bitter ending. Pleasant!

superspak (3972) - Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2015
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 1/8/2015. Listed as 7% on the bottle. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy deep reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, light chocolate, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/piney hops and dark/bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, light chocolate/nuttiness, light citrus, pine, and herbal/floral earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/piney bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, light citrus/pine, and herbal/floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready malt and citrus/earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/bready, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Some light dryness from bitterness as well. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good American brown ale style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready malt and citrus/earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

chinchill (3589) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 12, 2015
360 ml brown bottle. No date, but the amount and coarse nature of the sediment makes me think this may not be very fresh. Appearance: Hazy mahogany with a khaki head that displays good retention and leaves some lacing. Smell: Loads of medium roasted and chocolate malts, some chocolate, and a slight hop note. Flavor: lightly sweet and very malty with some faint yeast notes adding complexity. Hints of raisins and caramel. Mouthfeel: Light side of medium body; some dryness in the finish.
