COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Brown is a British Style brown. It has a roasted nutty flavor complimented by a great malt sweetness.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 2, 2005
On tap at the brewpub. Brown in color with a white head that does not last long. Mild carbonation. Has a dark roasted chocolate scent and a thick mouth feel. Surprising flavor of tropical fruit in a heavy syrup. possibly pears. Finishes rather hoppy. Strange and delicious for a style I generally don’t care for...

Brewpub visit 11/04 ... dark ruddy brown with a thin head. Sweet caramel rules. Malty and sugary and smooth. Nice done with a subtle bitter finish.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Solid. Molasses, brown sugar and nice carbonation. Fruity with toffee notes. Spicy, burgandy dark and not chalky. Lacks aroma but overall my favorite from this brewer.

Silphium (3158) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 8, 2004
On tap at Flat Branch. This was my favorite beer at the brewery. Deep red-brown body with nary a head. Flavor was quite interesting with caramel, toast, dark fruit, nuts, and red grapes. A tasty, quaffable brown ale.

boto (1807) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - APR 23, 2004
Draught: This pours a fairly clear brown color. There is a bit of a rapidly dying tan head. Not too much lacing. The aroma is somewhat sweet, with a hint of nutiness. Maybe some fruits, but very subdued. The taste is malty sweet and nutty. A hint of roastiness to it. The aftertaste is a bit dry also.

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 26, 2003
Pours ruddy brown with a lacy head. Malty and mildly hoppy aroma. Sweet attack that expands into a hoppy malty goodness. Sweet leave.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 11, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2003 Deep clear brown in color, has a small off-white head, nice fruity, nutty malty aroma. Mild nutty and sweet malty flavor, has a nice crisp hop bite in the finish. Somewhat of a watery and thin mouthfeel, not bad and pretty much average for the style.
