COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our roasted chocolate and pale malts shake hands creating mild caramel flavors. Brown is your new reason to love beer. Hops are added to create the perfect balance of sweetness to hopiness. Brown is back... and it's beautiful.

OK brown but not great. A bit thin and lager-like to be a true brown ale in anything but color (it is a nice looking beer).

This is a pretty good brown, hoppier than most, and more aggressive choice of hops. Dominantly sweet, however, mostly brown sugar and toffee. Attractive brown appearance with a decent head.

Nice. Fairly mild. Really easy to drink. Not an extreme beer but it is a pretty good example of the style. Good balance of malty roast and sweetness.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   Moderate brown, ruby hues, moderate light beige head, spritzy, spotty lacing.   Malty nose, a little mealy, slight cocoa notes.   Certainly light on any hop aspect.   Pretty malty, a little mealy, some cereal, with very little bitterness.   Decent, a good beginners Brown.   Very light on the exit, clean, with some minor mealy notes.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, perhaps nearing the thing side.   Wow, quick finish.   Not much there.   Certainly a light beer for the style, no hop bitterness and light on the tongue.   Wished it was a bit bigger, but as is it probably appeals to most of those who would usually drink BMC.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - NOV 27, 2009
12oz bottle. Clear amber-brown with a small head. The aroma is doughy with toasty, nutty malt and toffee. Sweet with a little nutty malt and almost no hops. Hint of bread-crust in the finish, along with just a touch of bitterness. Medium-light on the tongue with good carbonation. A very newcastle-veined brown ale; lacking the roast and darker malts in more assertive browns. Nothing really off about it, but just not very interesting or flavorful.

beerbill (3531) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2009
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with ditmier. Pours a clear amber with a large tan head that lasted through three-quarters of the glass and left partial lace. Very mild, in fact barely noticeable aroma of malt and not much else. The flavor is weak watered down malt followed by mixed vegetables. Medium bitterness. Light-medium bodied. Pretty forgettable.

DigitalMan (193) - Idaho, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Dark reddish, nice color for a brown ale. Small head. Mild, ordinary aroma. Really nice sweetness, good amount of hops to match. Donít taste the advertised chocolate (which happens to be just fine with me). Not bad at all.

Rich brown pour, light lacing, sour hops, watery, blah, I was a little excited as I usually really like Brown Ales. I was sorely disappointed.

Bridgeport sixers are on sale for $5.49 at the local and I was about to grab some IPA as it is my old standby but I thought "Why not try something new?" Nice brown-red color with a very helathy, foamy head. The smell is at first has a similar component to the IPA so maybe that is the yeast but its followed by a distinct malt smell. Nothing too special but still good. Nutty, brown flavor that is about average for a brown. Not sweet like Newcastle but actually has a bitterness. This would be an interesting Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-22-2008 19:40:27 id: 645884

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 3, 2009
2009 Bottle - Pours a dk amber with a small tan head...aroma is toasty, nutty and dry malty...flavous is suprisingly astringent, bitter malt and bitter hop, not a great balance...bitterness pretty much takes front and center, and makes it hard to notice much else...fair amout of grain, pretty forgetable...
