Bottle:A clear burtn sienna with virtually no head. It has an awesome aroma of roasted to burnt nuts, but the taste and feel were a bit disappointing. It seemed a little light and thin for a brown ale. It had a slight bitter/sour aftertaste. This one needs to go back to the lab for a "do-over." Thanks Indiana_Red for sharing.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 14, 2005
Pours a nice clear mahogany color with a very thin head. Aroma is nutty, woody and a little dry. Flavor is sugary malts with reserved nuttiness, maybe some toffee. Hints of bittering hops and maybe roasted malt creep into the finish. I think there is something off here but the sweetness is hiding it. Slightly creamy mouthfeel, but could be much more delicate for the style.

Beaver (1327) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 24, 2005
12 oz bottle. Pours a reddish brown with a small frothy head that quickly goes to a smoky wisp.

The aroma is nutty toffee and a little chocolate.

The flavor is a big sugary sweetness up front with nuts and toffee leading to a slightly bitter finish. It has some unpleasant medicinal notes. It’s kind of scotch ale like. The mouthfeel is thin and watery and light on carbonation.

Overall, I didn’t care for this at all. It was way too sweet and watery. I’d take an Odell’s 90 Shilling over this any day.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 6, 2005
NABA ’05: Dark auburn. Nice malty nutty aroma. The flavor is creamy, lightly roasted and sweet with just a touch of hops for garnish. Decent brown but sliding into the cookie cutter realm.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - APR 16, 2005
Burgundy color. Trace malts in the nose (caramel, biscuits) by a minty and floral hop scent and hints of clay and glue. Light toffee and roasted malts in the flavor with a light hop finish. An above average Brown Ale.

PBOYNY (316) - Westchester, New York, USA - AUG 30, 2004
average brown, somewhat spicy , but lacking something, maybe flavor, after three of them, i was bored, but they do have a nice punch!

3fourths (8219) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Dark orange and copper colored. Grey/medium tan head. Spicy gingerbread introduces this one, with some wheat, wood and cola following, ending with a light touch of scotch. Very interesting, and a unique brown ale.

Perceptron (32) - USA - JUL 9, 2004
Great toasty carmelly brown. Carmel malts contribute a big portion of this beers flavor. Almost no hop aroma and mainly contribute the the bitterness at the end. A great malty brown ale.

Braudog (5876) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2004
Reddish brown with a nice staying tan head. Very creamy character. Light nutty flavors and not overpowering. Good choice for a cold night’s drink-fest.
