4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of the best Brown Ales I have ever tasted. No surprise with the title then. Smooth Carmel, deep calm, pleasant tone, warm body. Hard to drink just one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Best Brown Ale has a thick, creamy, bone-colored head, and a tan or light-brown, turbid appearance, with a few lacing strings left behind. The aroma is of somewhat spicy, brown bread crust and nut oil. Taste is of sweet, slightly spicy, brown bread crust, tea, a touch of chocolate, and some low-to-medium bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium, and Best Brown Ale finishes medium dry. RJT

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours brown...maybe a touch of ruby. About half finger khaki head. Okay retention, fair lacing. The beer is pretty, just wish it had better head on it.
Aroma is mild. Nutty, sweet, medium roasted malts. I smell pecans and hazelnuts.
Taste is nutty and smooth. Again, pecans and hazelnuts. Smooth, creamy. Just a touch of bitterness that might be pecan shell. There might be some caramel, very light cocoa.
Mouthfeel is medium body. Creamy, smooth. Finishes with light and lingering bitterness.
Overall, this is outstanding. Good all the way around. I absolutely recommend this, and I cant wait to have another one!

Bottle - Pours a dark amber to medium brown, white head. Smells of sweet malt, caramel, toffee, and a hint of fruit. Flavors of a sweet malty base, a mild syrup, toffee, and a sort of skunk water to this particular one... mild hops finish.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
nice velvet almost creamy brew that holds the flavor of tree bark and sweet caramel adulterated slightly with the broom. warming and smooth the beer becomes intense for a second and some hop emerges. foamy character adds to the pleasantries, the beer is a bit dense and therefore fuller. caramel and perhaps cocoa in the sweetness. satisfying , beery and lingering.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can pour from Wally’s. Aroma is sweet caramel, with some dark fruits and yeasty. Appearance is clear dark brown mahogany without sparkle with two-finger width light brown head that diminishes to ring with decent lacing. Taste is sweet toasted malt with caramel. Palate is medium bodied with creamy texture, average carbonation with late lively zing to the tip of the tongue and sweet caramel finish. Overall, true to style but borders on unfinished side.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle@home, from Wine Spot, Cleveland, USA. Light/medium aroma of sweeter malts, bit vanilla and a hint of caramel, still bit sour. Deep brown/red color with medium/small light beige head and hazy liquid. Medium balanced taste with malts and caramel, some syrup ans a hint of vanilla. Medium taste spectrum and medium soft aftertaste with a bit roasted malts. Light/medium body with light carbonation. Overall, good high quality flavors, although could be more punch both in flavor and body. This would be nice to see in 8.5% class.
