drjay44 (3436) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Draft. Pours a thin off white head, with minimal lacing, over a clear brown (SRM 25) body......nose is light toffee.caramel, light cocoa, chocolate.....taste is cocoa, chocolate, nuttiness, slight toffee/caramel, finishing with a light bitterness......mouth feel light of medium, slightly astringent, carbonation low. This is a mild take on a Northern English Brown Ale. It is, overall, rather simple in its construction with minimal complexity, but it does fall into the style. BJCP 7/3/12/4/7

DYCSoccer17 (3637) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pint on tap at Euclid Hall in Denver. Sweet chocolate notes in the aroma with some moderate roast. Lightly metallic. Transparent dark amber-brown body with a medium, fizzy khaki-beige head. Starts with sugary chocolate maltiness. Becomes a little toasted in the middle. Finishes with more sweetness. Pretty good and flavorful. A bit sugary and sweet, though.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear brown with a slight red tint and a creamy tan head. Nutty and malty aroma, vanilla, graham crackers, grass, light maple syrup, and brown sugar. Taste is somewhat bland, nutty, malty, bready, and grassy with a light bitter finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Ok Brown.

Draft at brewpub. Pours brown with a thin brown head. Slight caramel note on the nose. A bit of malty goodness on the tongue with a hint of nuttiness. Clean finish. Hoping this would be stronger.

Draught. Dark brown pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of caramel and grain. Thin mouthfeel with an even smooth finish. A little boring but not too bad.

arminjewell (9262) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Pours brownish with off white head on tap, aroma has nice sweet notes of toffee, nuts, molasses, some burnt toast, with a touch of roast. Taste is nice with notes of toffee, molasses, some dark fruit, nice nut notes with a slightly roasted but mainly sweet finish. Good brew, but needed a bit more.

onceblind (7480) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 29, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2011 Chestnut brown, with clear ruby tones. Aroma of light cocoa, sugar cookie, and assertive nutty notes. Texture was a bit bland, a bit too light bodied with not enough carbonation. Not punchy enough. Lots of smooth nutty brown malt on the flavor. There is also some light cocoa tones, but little else. Finish is very fleeting.
