Crushed with Jakebra at Falling Rock. Average brown. Some substance but not much to it. A very drinkable brown just not that exciting.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - SEP 12, 2005
Draught. Wonderful roasted malt and chocolate aroma, with hints of fudge and fruits. Flavor is rich, malt accented, and a bit unorthodox for a Brown ale, considering it had significant roast and burnt malt flavors. Very rich in body as well. Bull & Bush has impressed me thusfar. I should visit the brewery soon.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Thin minimal head. Medium tan color. Light buttery aroma. Taste is buttery, toffee. Lots of roasted malt, nuttiness. Finish has this tinge of burnt malt, which fits very nicely. Good stuff.

Stine (1462) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Tap at the Falling Rock. Pour of creamy, dark toffee appearance, layering a thick, frothy head up the sides of the glass. Aroma of cream soda, vanilla cavendish, salted taffy, fig, and raspberry. Nutty, sweet and soft. Flavor is a sweet mash of old bananas, cinnamon, caramel, red licorice, vanilla, and toffee. Palate is cool and very soft with an earthy, woody texture and lots of residual sugar; finishes long and dry with raspberry bitterness and some gummy iced tea. Underattenuated throughout, but pretty smooth and easygoing enough to be pleasant.

brentfeesh (1207) - Gadsden, Alabama, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Draft at Falling Rock during GABF. Brown nut shell with a medium off white head. Brown roasty malt that is very stereotypic to the style but good. Lightly roasted flavor. Simple with very light malt sweetness. Nothing off and well balanced. Smooth mouth feel, medium body. Nothing fancy but well made and sessionable.

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.
