3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from BrookFalls Discount. Pours a tannish brown with a lot of effervesence and a bit of a white head. Almost no lacing. Aroma has sweet malts, some nuts and brown sugar. Taste is of sweet caramel, some fruitiness, nuts, somewhat toast and sweet brown sugar. Medium bodied and - despite the pour - lowly carbonated. Finishes mostly sweet, a bit cloyingly so. Scotch ale-ish.

Rcvd in trade: it pours slightly brown and leaves a tan colored body and leaves a one finger off-white head. It leaves some nice spotty lacing and no carbonation is seen rising. The aroma has a fair amount of toffee up front with some nice subtle flavorings of nuts as well as some chocolates and caramels. The flavoring is basically the same with more of the maltiness coming out as the beer warms. Its pretty easy on the palate for the most part or at least as any English Brown ale can be; overall, this is a very nice English Brown that I recommend and would definitely have again.

Pours a cloudy brown with a smallish head. Roasted malts with chocolates notes and some balanced bitterness. One of the best brown ales around.

16 oz can. I've had this several times before but never rated it somehow. The pour is a definite reddish brown, thin, with a decently thick very light tan head and some good lace. The aroma is a little metallic for some reason, but I've picked this up on many browns. A light caramel is present and a decent roast is present. The flavor is more roasty malt and light caramel. That's about all that's there. The mouth feel is pretty surprisingly decent. Moderate thickness and a carbonation that is a bit light but much more body than I was expecting. The aftertaste isn't bad. Quick and lightly malty but quick.

Pours a rich copper color with a slight sweet malt aroma. Taste is clean, smooth, easy drinking. Flavors of light caramel, toast, a bready aftertaste that lingers on the palate. A minimal bitter aftertaste, felt I had to really concentrate to discern it.

bottle. Poured clear dark amber with a tan head. Sweet caramel malt aroma. Medium body, average carbonation, slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Roasted malt flavour, sweet and a touch smokey, notes of coffee and molasses.

Bottled. I tend to fing Browns kinda of boring. This one had a little more flavor going for it than you usual brown. Nothing fancy. Good drinkable beer.
