UPDATED: JUL 14, 2004 A Miller Lite drinker told me this tasted more like 'Moose Pee', so I figured it must be good. Not too bad, a little ordinary.

nice sweet malty, medium-thick, smooth kind of nutty, lightly hopped. My parents brought this for me all the way across the country in a cooler. How thoughtful!!!

Re-Rate 06/04/02: Deep clear garnet, beige head, decenbt lace. Nose is malt, lightly nut sweet, caramel. Front is sweet, mouth feel is medium to full, the finish is acidic, dry, lightly hopped and quite a pleasant drinking beer.

Somewhat light reddish-brown color. Faint head, okay lacing, though. Brown-malty bready aroma. The maltiness also factors highly into the flavor profile here, but hops are also surprisingly apparent, especially in the finish. Interesting hop blend! Some light citrusy and piney flavors. Different than most browns Iíve had, but pretty tasty, I thought. Sampled on draught.

Wanted to like it but couldnít. It was boring, and itís not cuz of my sickness, I suppose, as I was able to sense the rich chocolatey biscuity maltiness of the Orchard Street Porter earlier. Nope, I think itís just a straight old Brown, fair brown maltiness with a tiny lemon tang at the end.

Not too dark, but not too light. Not bitter and no heavy aftertaste. This had everything I love in a beer but just did nothing to put it over the top. Smooth drinking beer none-the-less.

Easily one of my favorite beers. Smooth, but strong flavor that makes it one of the tastiest beers Iíve had.
