3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear brown pour with a fluffy off-white head. Something in the nose of this is a bit off-putting. Grainy, malty nose with a hint of something I don’t like that I can’t put my finger on. Taste is pretty nice. Light caramel and malty. Thin. Watery finish.

[Tap] Part of a sampler at the brewery. Lighter shade of brown. Nice ring of lacing in glass. Sweet breads and caramel aroma. Only faint hints of any nuttiness. Decent malt blend keeps this from becoming too sweet. OK overall.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2013 Tap at the brewpub. Clear orange-amber pour with a sticky head. Thinner palate, mild aroma, mild nutty taste, just so-so.

On tap at the O’so tap house. Pours a clear amber brown with a light brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a nice nuttiness that is backed by a bread note and a bit of sweet grains. Flavor has a really nice nuttiness with a bit of backing grain and bread.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Bull Falls. Poured clear honeyed amber with a sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up soured, metallic bready notes and a touch of nutty character.. more metallic as it warmed up.. not good. The flavor was only slightly better.. sweet nutty and caramel notes at the core with some chocolate toward the back.. metallic stuff showed up back there too.. went downhill quickly after the initial taste. Light-medium bodied and oddly sour on the palate.. tacky at other times.. like the Five Star, this seemed off.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the Bull Falls brewpub. Run of the mill brown ale is clear light brown with a thin off-white head. Aroma of light caramel, light fruit and nuts. Taste is a tad too sweet with caramel, sweet malt and a touch of roasted malt. The finish is a touch off and a tad dry.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at OF. Mild sweet aroma. Thick brown color, minimal head. Medium body. Malty and smooth, with some some sweet nuttiness. Mild soapy aftertaste. Hops are minimal but instill an odd harsh bitterness, somewhat woody. A touch underwhelming. OK.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(growler from Skyview) Pours brown with an off-white head. Aroma is dry with some cocoa, toasted nut, and a hint of roasted coffee. The taste was quite good with some light chocolate, toasted nut, and just a little bit of cherry hard candy near the finish. The rest of the finish is dry, and the mouthfeel is medium. A really good brown ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Another growler from Skyview. For a style of beer that has only so much potential, Bull Falls has taken it about as far as it can go. Cloudy brown appearance. Malt aroma, and a rich malt flavor with some nuts. There is some aftertaste of bread. This is about as good as a brown ale can get.
