2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Large mug poured at Lyon’s Pub. Copper in color with small head. Smell is like a syrupy, old coffee left out for too long. Taste is...not good. Something really unpleasant...maybe burnt sugar mixed with bitters. There are some sour fruit elements. Not much complexity or enjoyment with this option. Avoid.

Medium red brown with a thin off white head. Raspberry, soft chocolate, malts, and graham crackers. Taste is moderately sweet, but fades to a dry flavor. Body is a little heavier, but the sharp carbonation offsets this. Really tasty, almost like dessert.

Poured from a 12oz bottle(thanks Tyler!) and served in a Bell’s dimpled mug. This beer poured a semi-translucent brown color with a lasting tan head. A small amount of slippery lacing was left around the glass. The aroma of the beer was made up of caramel, nuts, and biscuit. The flavor was nice and malty with notes of caramel, chocolate, nuts, along with a mildly spicy noble hop finish. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and smooth with light carbonation. A very nice example of the style. I wish I could get my hands on more of this!

Brown black color almost color of a great root beer, head is tan with some frothy bubbles. Anise, chocolate, smoke in the aroma. Medium to light body, flavors are melded together, anise, chocolate, sweet dark malts, balanced finish. This is tasty but nothing special.

Thanks to Deliriumfest for this one in a trade!
A-Completely transparent chestnut brown colored body. Pours with an approximately 2 finger foamy off-white head. Head eventually fades completely. No lacing left behind in the glass.
S-Nose has a very sweet, sticky nose of caramel and toffee, behind this is a hint of nuttiness.
T-Initial flavor of sweet caramel and toffee. These flavors intensify for the finish and add a hint of roasted nuttiness. Flavor is clean otherwise.
P-Medium tingly carbonation and medium weight, drinkable body. Mouthfeel is smooth and silky.
O- This is a nice English Brown Ale. I haven’t had an English Brown in awhile and it was nice to revisit the style. This brew is very sweet and has a strong flavor. It would be perfect for making bread with. Wouldn’t mind having this again.

On tap. Aroma of caramel, nuts, some roastiness. Good flavor, solid enough bitterness to let you know it’s there. Good beer.

This is a great brown ale. Nutty, chocolate taste with a hint of raspberry. Damn good brew. I have yet to be let down by a brau brother beer.
