Doesnít linger as long as Iíd like and it doesnít have a pervasive, tastebud-taxing taste like, for instance, Three Floydísí Robert the Bruce, which would be about the same price per six-pack ($7.99 plus tax). Tasty in general and a nice brew but not really worth the money.

Easter tasting @ jbeanís. Only brown ale that I have liked nearly as much as the Pullman. Sweet honey, bready (surprisingly!), chocolate, very rich malt. Lip-smackingly delicious.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Beautiful dark brown cocoa color with an amazing fluffy white head that sticks around for a bit. Tastes extremely smooth with hints of chocolate and malt. Only lacking feature was aroma.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep brown with a slight red tint too it when held up to light. Has a one finger cream color head that seems to be holding up pretty well. Smells like toasted malts. Aroma is slightly earthy as well. Palate is very smooth. Toasted nuts, baked bread, toasted malts, a little bitterness that gives it a nice balance. There is also a little bit of sweetness that is coming through as the beer warms up a bit.
Overall a very well balanced, easy to drink beer. Iím not a huge brown ale fan but when they are as good as this I canít help but enjoy them.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a nice dark brown with red hues. Aroma of roasted malts, toffee, and caramel. Tatse is very well balanced of roasted malt, nuts, toffee, cocoa and caramel, offset perfectly with hops. Great brown ale.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very good brown ale from one of my favorite micros. An aroma of roasted and caramel malts. A flavor to match. Somtimes cloudly if not poured or stored properly. Only major drawback is the slightly thin palate. A very good brown.

On tap at the brewery. A solid brown ale, comparable with Brooklyn and Ithaca.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a cloudy dark brown with a light reddish glow. Not much head, but what is there is ivory.
Smells of toasted malts, a little coffee-like. Very inviting.
Has a bit of an initial bite to it, fills the mouth with the taste of the toasted malts that were present in the scent.
Carbonation level might be a little high, but not enough to detract from the impact the beer makes on the palate. Goes down relatively smoothly, leaves a slightly dry aftertaste.
I could drink a few of these in a sitting. I donít know that I would actively seek this brew out, but this is certainly not a bad beer.
