on tap-pours an offwhite head with copper color. Couldn’t get the aroma. Taste is sweet (there’s a theme developing with many of their beers), caramel, malt, hops. Not as dark/roasty as most browns. I enjoyed this more than the standard brown.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2006
Draft... GBOA ’06... Crystal clear amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Subtle aroma is malty, lightly chocolaty and nutty. Malty, mildly sweet flavor. Light-bodied and watery with soft carbonation. Finishes thin. A little boring, but very drinkable.

DocLock (7481) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2004
Rated: 750 ml bottle. This is a good broan ale, with a slight head. It is malty, but seems a little on the sour side. Subdued hops, and a finish that is malty and a bit tart, with hints of black cherry. A complex beer.

Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 1, 2009
Pours brown with a tan head. Smells of sweet malt and earthy. Taste is much of the same with some spicy hints. Good for what it is.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2005
Bottle: Dark caramel, hazy, thin off-white spritzy head, spotty lacing, no real carbonation.   Slight sour woody nose, completely unexpected.   Past its prime maybe?   Sour start, like a non-dry Gueuze that isn’t overly tart.   Not like your typical Brown Ale.   Body is somewhat weak tho, and mouthfeel is less than average.   Mild tart finish, very subtle sweetness.   Guessing this isnt what they intended.   Decent, but definitely not a Brown Ale.   Thanks Jeff for the freebie.

Verre de dégustation, provenant d’un fût, dégusté au Atlantic City Beer Festival 2007 (Atlantic City, NJ). Arôme: Odeur de malt et de noix. Apparence: La couleur est brune translucide. Présence d’un mince col crémeux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de caramel avec une pointe d’houblon. Courte durée de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est mince avec une texture légèrement crémeuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de caramel sucré en arrière goût. (Rating #902)

egajdzis (5194) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2004
Poured a reddish caramel color with a small, off white head that left very light lacing on the glass. Butterscotch, diactyl, nuts, citrus hop aroma. Dry, citrus hop taste, light fruitiness, sweet malt and little cardboard. Average mouthfeel. Not bad.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2009
12oz. Bottle: Fain, slightly tart aroma of malts, tart fruit, cherries, and medicine. Poured deep amber/copper in color with a medium-sized tan head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling to very sparkling. Many tiny, small, and medium-sized particles throughout. Flavor is lightly tart and slightly sweet. Tastes of tart fruit, cherries, malts, malted milk, and some cocoa. Medium body. Thin, lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Tart, cherry, malt, and malted milk finish. Much more a sour than a brown ale.
