Pours a medium brown with very little head. Almost no aroma. Flavor is sweet malts and toffee. Has too little carbonation and tastes flat and watery. Not a bad beer, but not one I’d seek out again.

Light head and aroma. Decent flavor but nothing outstanding. Good maltiness. Pretty mediocre brown ale. Smooth with very little aftertaste.

Cola brown pour with a medium dirty white head. Aroma was heavy crystal malt. Flavor had strong caramel, brown sugar, roasted malt. A little too sweet. Good amount of carbonation.

Nice smooth beer with medium to little head. Had a pleasant scent, and a very unique flavor. Goes down easy (sometime too easy) and has a coco/caramel aftertaste. Alone, this is a nice beer for a relaxing day, with food, that can be a bit tricky.

Great brew I had on draft while in Lincoln, NE. Almost too smooth...had some nice smoky flavor, but went so nicely. Decent brown head. After trying 2 brews from this company, I was very pleased. Looks like there is more than football in Lincoln!

From a 12 oz. stubby bottle with no freshness date.
Poured a dark brown with a foamy, fluffy head that settled into a thin lacing.
Simple aromas of chocolate, nutty grains with a light floral and citrus.
Even, steady carbonation and a crisp, dry, smooth light bodied mouthfeel.
Tastes of coffee malts, nutty, a little burnt grain, citric fruitiness from the hops, and a chocolate malty, citric, grainy finish.

got this awhile back from EBOATS! Thanks pal, was in the fridge all this time. .... Poured a very dark brown, white creamy head. Nose was sweet with touches of nut. Good caramel and but to start, while the flavor profile ends from there, just drops off. Not a bad brew for a standard brown.

Great heavy, nutty flavor out of the gates, but it finishes a little weak. I would’ve liked it to linger a little longer. Still a very good beer. A *little* watery, but not as much as, say, Newcastle.
