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 (1099) - 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.

visionthing (4654) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2016
33cl bottle (7%) at Hell Hunt, Tallinn. Pours hazy dark amber with a modest, off-white head. Malty aroma with notes of caramel, some mild fruity and hoppy notes and hints of pine. Moderate to medium sweet with pleasant mixture of mild hoppy flavours and malty ones. Finishes lightly bitter. Pleasant one, easy to drink and well integrated alcohol.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

adasko (1763) - Poznan, POLAND - APR 8, 2016
Tap na BGM. Dość klasyczny brown ale. Sporo nut orzechów, karmelu, ciasteczek w aromacie i smaku. Przyjemny do wypicia, ale nie zachwyca w żadnym aspekcie.

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.

Douberd (4610) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2015
(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.
