deyholla (9997) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 26, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange with a slight earthy brown hue and a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of nuttiness that is backed by hay, grain and bread. Flavor is also full of nuttiness but also has notes of bread and a bit of an odd acidic note.

Tap at the brewpub. Clear brown amber pour with a thin white head. Big caramel malt nose. Mostly smooth palate with some carbonation. Caramel and nut taste.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 26, 2003
This is just like all Rowlands beers, lots of good, well rounded malts. The nutty profile is there, but not overwhelming. Also goes down smooth, of course.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2007
Fourth stop during Wisconsin Trip #2 and one of 11 brews offered at this small town brewpub. Pours a dark brown brew with an off white head. Head disappears at an average speed with excellent lacing. Armoa scents picked up include caramel, Toll House chocolate chip cookies with walnuts, bananas and roasted barley malt. Taste is smooth and sweet with light carbonation. Most excellent!

muzzlehatch (4756) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 29, 2002
Pretty undistinguished brown; one of just a couple of below-average samples from Calumet, and still its better than the best from a few micros that I’ve had. On the sweet side, rather thin, little aroma.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 14, 2011
On tap at Rowlands Calumet Brewery. Brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is once again buttery with light roasted malt and nuts. Taste of roasted malt, buts, swamp water and some diacetyl.

Terminus (3566) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 28, 2003
probably my second fav of the batch. Definately one of teh better brown ales i have ever had, probably because im not that much of a fan of this style. What chimaybabe says goes!
