COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Striker Brown Ale is similar to an English brown ale "with a little more muscle," Land said, and is a "soccer-themed beer." "Itís a smooth brown thatís not topped off with any hops," Land said. "Itís got a very clean finish." --Oneonta Daily Star

The body has a dark brown color with a slight reddish hue when held up light. It is dark but the clarity is still good. Its head has a light tan color and stands about one finger tall. It slowly fades down to just a wispy thin layer that makes some slick lacing. There is sweet roasted maltiness in the nose with notes of dark caramel, toffee and just a slight hint of hops. The flavor has a very sweet and bready malt character with notes of brown sugar, caramel, and some deep roasted notes. There is a very light and smooth buttery flavor as well. Hop flavor and bitterness are very light and offer very little balance to the sweet malt. It has a medium body with a smooth texture and light but active carbonation.

12oz bottle thanks to beerbill, pours a cloudy dark brown with an amber hue and large khaki head. Aroma of cocoa, caramel, caramel, and nuts. Taste similar to aroma with an overlaying fruitiness, yet kinda of bland.

12 oz bottle from the brewery. Used my Newcastle glass. Deep, rich brown poor with tons of carbonation. Very thin small off white head. Not much lace at all. Nose of caramel and nuts. Taste is much the same. Not going to get you real excited butÖ it would be a nice session brew if you live in NY. Itís a very standard and straight forward Brown.

beerbill (3503) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 23, 2011
12 oz bottle purchased at the brewery. Pours brown with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light lace. Pleasant aroma of caramel and malt. The flavor is similar with caramel and malt with perhaps just a touch of roast. Mild hops bitterness at the finish. This is a straightforward and enjoyable brown ale.

12 ounce bottle courtesy of MaltDawg. Thanks! Sampled at the 11th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 4/17/10. Pours a clear reddish brown color with a large brown head that fades quickly. Aroma of brown malts, caramel and faint plum like fruity notes. The taste is bitter hops, nutty notes, some caramel and a milky note. Medium bodied. Pretty decent.

ruskiimperial (308) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2010
Sampled at the Richmond Eleventh. Aroma is quite sweet on this one with some hints of hops. Taste is pretty heavy on sweet possibly caramelized malts, some light hints of hops and a very light body. Nothing too interesting on this one, though it is a very palateable beer for most any relaxed occasion.
