DialSquare (2506) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Can from Beer:30 in Jax. Amber-brown pour with thin light tan head. Aroma of nutty cereal. Tastes are light sweet, brown sugar, nuts, roasty, graham cracker, chocolate. Not overly sweet that usually puts me off browns. Straightforward, but drinkable.

Mikljon (5) - San Mateo, California, USA - MAR 10, 2014 does not count
12 oz. can from my Florida brother. Very pleasant. Appearance is more dark orange than brown with off-white head. Chocolate, roast nuttiness in nose, nothing too pronounced. I might detect a bit of a tobacco note. We'll balanced taste, rich and toasty without being sweet. It has a nice fruity finish and subtle hop flavor. Above average mouth feel. A good easy to drink mild brown. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jgb9348 (4635) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Crisp, slightly hazy rich brown coloured body with a darker brown top and a rich, thick, five centimetre tall brown head. Aroma of alcohol, toasted malt, nuts, earth and hints of light sugars. Light-bodied; Very very mild flavour of toasted malt, alcohol, sour grapes and nothing else - water. Aftertaste shows the palest of malts with a touch of grass and grain and the ever-present lemon taste. Overall, a pretty lacklustre beer with only some toffee flavours noticeable in a good way. Otherwise, this beer is worth passing up, even in the novelty of the can. I sampled this 12 ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Tampa, Florida on 03-January-2014 for US$1.79, sampled at home in Washington on 25-February-2014.

onceblind (3934) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Clear dark amber with a thin foamy off-white cap. Nose has some sweet earthy toast and some earthy nutty toffee. Flavor is sorta the same; toast, earthy sweet toffee, nutty biscuit, and a light gentle cocoaness throughout.

Dogbrick (7586) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Pours from a can a clear light brown color with a minimal light beige head that disappears quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of roast malt and nuts. Light to medium body with a roasty character of malt and nuts, plus slight hops in the background. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Average all around.
