Ratman197 (13254) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 16, 2006
Bottle pored aq clear brown with a small amber head. Aromas of carmel, toffee and nuts. Palate was light bodied. Kinda watery actually. Flavors of toffee, carmel and a bit of nuttiness with a lingering bittersweet finish.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Bottle. Notes of caramel and toffee with an ok head on the pour. Light coffee and roasted grain flavors upon tasting. Pretty decent for a brown that I am not a big fan of. Watery, but maybe a plus for me with this style.

Had this on-tap at the brewery. Beer poured a clear, dark-amber color with a small, creamy, off-white, mostly diminishing head and nice lacing. The aroma is moderately malty with roasted grain, cookie and caramel; trace notes of herbal hops and a light miscellaneous note of cherry. The flavor begins with a trace of sweetness and gives away to a long, moderately bitter finish. The body was medium-to-full with a watery texture and lively carbonation.

Suttree (6070) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 4, 2005
Brown, as one might expect from a brown ale. Faint caramel aroma. Hint of maple, hint caramel, hint of this, hint of that, etc, etc - perhaps a bit too understated for its own good? Thanks to Indana_Red for the trade!

Tasted 9/30, Dillon Dam Brewery. GABF weekend 2005. Brown with a slight ruby hue. Good malty nose. Light malt roast, with coffee and toffee flavors. Smooth nutty flavor. Nice brew. I would have to say the best example I tried from this spot.

Oakes (15615) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2005
Medium brown colour. Bold nutty aroma and flavour. Quite sweet, but with complex nutty, toasty malt notes. A little watery in the finish but otherwise a good example.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Brown, light head and small lace. Nutty and fruity aromas. Toasted malts and some bitter hops. Cocoa in the flavor with earthy hops and toasted malts. Smooth finish.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 30, 2005
Bottle: Light brown, muddy, small sudsy off-white head, so-so lacing.   Coffee bean, maple syrup, and brown sugar on the nose.   Yeah, it seems kinda sweet.   Coffee and roasted malts on the tongue, very sweet.   Body is moderate, mouthfeel is bordering on the thin side.   Not much hop presense, malts are not as big as I would have liked.   Less sweet, bigger malt, and we’ve got a winner.   Thanks Ken!

Pailhead (6403) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - SEP 8, 2005
Bottle: Courtesy of Indiana_Red via trade. Aroma is nutty with moderate coffee. Pours an orangish-borwn with an insignificant tan head. Flavor is rather malty. Moderate caramel and chocolate up front with a roasted nutty finish. Don’t get any coffee flavor like I do in the aroma.

12 oz bottle received in a trade with Indiana_Red - Thanks Ken! - Pours pale brown with a ssmall white head. Aroma is of brown sugar, caramel and a little nut. Flavors similar to aroma. Palate very watery and thin. Very little carbonation and not very much flavor. I’ve had much better browns but this is drinkable
