This beer’s got a nice clear brown body, with a ruby-red glow to it. Light brown foamy head. Some lacing, some carbonation, and a pretty decent head retention. This sure looks like a proper Brown Ale. The aroma is very malty, with notes of roastiness, bitter chocolate, and brown sugar. However there is also a decent hop smell, with a floral and grassy feel to it. Hints of dark fruits... The taste starts out quite roasty and chocolatey, with some bitterness from the roasted malts. Then a decent hop flavour comes through, lingering all the way to the end. Fairly sweet, a little sour, with hints of prunes or raisins. Tastes like a good Brown ale, but I’ve had better AMERICAN brown ales. Light-to-medium body to it. A little disappointing, because it feels a bit thin. Some crisp carbonation at first. Good drinkability’ this could easily make a session brown ale. Goes down smoothly, since neither the flavour nor the body is too strong.

A decent brown. Pours well but has a timid aroma. Palate leaves a strong carbonation taste and feel. Slight acidic aftertaste

0 beers in. Pours a nice frothy head on top of a somewhat cloudy mahogany beer - almost red in color. The aroma is slighly sweet malty aroma. As the beer enters the mouth, a welcoming malty bitterness arises. On the swallow, a dark chocolate taste stays in the mouth with a little bit of a sour note to it. I would rather this beer have a little more nose to it - most of the flavor comes from the back of the mouth. A very drinkable beer - one that I would enjoy over any animal: baby back ribs, ham, bacon, pork chops, etc.

Dark brown with a nice light brown head, looks a little like coke... Sweet malty aroma, hops, some... earth? Am I fooled by the looks or can I feel the coke in aroma too? Taste is even sweeter and maltier, also with hops, a hint of burnt/roasted. Lasting aftertaste and thick in mouth. Not really a fantastic beer but I can definitely have more of this.

Pours dark brown with flecks of red. Thin, tan head that doesn’t hang around long. Aroma is a bit nutty, honey with a bit of fig. Flavor is caramel malt, a bit roasty but also a bit flat. Some hops come in on the finish, but could’ve stood a bit more of a kick to balance it out. I’d go back to it, but it doesn’t top my list.

For the style, a very bland and watery beer. Don’t get me wrong, it has some taste and is satisfying, but overall there isn’t all that much that stands out.

A brown beer with a cumulus head. I don’t know how they did it. Very refreshing, but lacking a bit in flavor and palate. Crystal in character. Worth its dollar, but I expected more from its irresistible looks.
