On draft at Corner Cafe. Pours clear brown-amber with an off-white head. Nose is coffee, slight nuts, and citrus hops. Flavor is thin coffee, earth, and a fair dose of citrus hops. Thin body finishing with lingering bitter citrus hops. Hoppy, light-bodied brown ale.

@FBGBF Brewers Ball-on tap–pours a light tan ring for a head and brown color. Aroma is medium malt, some pine/earthy. Taste is medium malt-roasty, some pine/earthy hops bite. Toward medium body. 3.0 As it warms, nicer, roastier and caramel. 3.2

My Bottom Line :
This hop-oriented American-style Brown Ale promotes citrusy and leafy flavours atop a lean foundation of fruity caramel, ending in a lengthy earthy and resinous bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam crowns cloudy dark brown.
-The carbonation is smooth and the mouthfeel lean, making this very drinkable.
-The malts do offer some coffee and caramel flavours, yet they are not as defined as they could be.
-This is another severely unfiltered and flavorful ale from Corner Café. I’d prefer a brighter pint myself (less suspended yeast), but that’s just me.

On tap at the brewpub.

Tap. Moderate malt aromas of bread, nutty and toasted, light herbs for the hops, light dough and earth for the yeast with a hint of pepper. Head is huge, rocky, off-white with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is clear dark reddish brown. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery and has a lively carbonation and a lightly astringent finish. Great malt balance in this Brown Ale.

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 27, 2009
On tap at the Florida Brewers Guild BeerFest 2009. Pours clear garnet with a nice mocha head. The aroma starts with mild pine and citrus hops that bleed into nice roasted malts and hints of nuttiness. The taste is much the same with a little bit of pine hops then heading into moderate roastiness, nuttiness and a faint background of toffee butterscotch initially not distracting from the experience. Overall seems like a fairly hoppy brown ale and after several ounces consumed there could be less butterscotch.

nick76 (4184) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2009
The aroma is weak but toasted and a little sweet with some hops. The appearance is brown with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin but alright. Overall this is a better than average beer.

Beershine (5213) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2009
At brewpub. Hazy mahogany brown with nice lacing. Aromatic, balanced hop aromas with some pine. Creamy soft mouthfeel. Nuanced flavors with lots of roasted malts. Somewhat thin finish but quaffable. Roasted nuts. Balanced and good.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 2, 2009
Murky light brown. Toasty, orangey aroma. Very toasty with light chocolate. There’s lots of woody hop bitterness and a grapefruity finish. Very dry. Cool brown ale.

daknole (8949) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Poured at the Jupiter brewfest. A brownish red pour leaves a really good frothy head. The aroma has chocolate notes, coffee and some really good nutiness. Flavor is damn good. Great mouthfeel, chocolate, nuts, fruit and caramel malts meld together VERY well. Great beer in a style that is messed up by many.

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 15/20
darkguardian (725) - Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Draft at the Cafe. Pours a soft reddish brown. Nice beigish head that lasts for a long time. Great nose of chocolate and fruit, citrus and berry with some nuttiness. Amazing. Taste is quite like the nose, a thick full mouthfeel thats really one of the best I’ve had from a brown ale. Chocolate, macadamia nuts, tons of smooth caramel and a bit of berry. Capped off by a quite hoppy citrus finish. Exceptional.
