dark brown color, purplish highlights, tan head, nice lacing. noose of chocolate, perhaps a hint of roasty coffee. flvor is coffee and chocolate. medium bodied, dry finish. a touch too sweet, perhaps, but not a bad brew. draft sample at flossmoor station brewpub.

Growler. Nearly opaque brown, shows lighter brown at the edges. Very thin light tan head briefly clings to the glass. Aroma is mostly roast. Flavor is dry, a hint nutty, chocolate notes. Lacks a potent body, the Zephyr doesnít seem to be adding anything to me, just lightening up the beer. Makes it a good sessionable beer with a largely dry character. Finishes dry, bitter, toasty. Light body.

On tap at brewpub. Pours dark reddish brown with thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate, caramel and toast malt. Flavor is mostly chocolate malt with some caramel and light hops. Mouthfeel is a little thin. Not nearly as good as Pullman.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - JAN 31, 2009
On tap at Flossmoor Station and served in a pint glass. This beer poured a reddish mahogany brown hue with a thin head of creamy tan foam. Just a bit of lacing. The aroma was chocolate, caramel, and a light citrus hoppiness. The flavor was much the same...watered down Pullman. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and had moderate carbonation. Not bad, but I would much rather drink a pint of Pullman anyday.

TheEpeeist (3371) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2009
On tap at Flossmoor. Dark brown with a beige skin. Nose is woody grapes and brown sugar. Almost medium body with soft carb. Taste is candied walnuts and hay with bitter burnt sugar. OK with a brat.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2011 Pullman Brown mates with a Zephyr Lite...a mixed marriage spawns an elite and professorial brew that deeply resents being sold and consumed, most likely because everyone now realizes that Capitalism has been tried, and it has failed! Pullman Brown is present early, but quickly fades away, leaving an immature and frightened Zephyr Lite to deal with the consequences. This beer comes with a very precise "born-on" date...itís the location that is far less certain. Even Liberals refuse to drink it at their own victory celebration, sensing, perhaps, that even the biggest of government economic stimulus packages canít bail this one out (pairs well with pork, however!) leaving barrels of this brew undrunken(?). Maybe Liberals just donít have the inaugural balls to drink this beer? And I thought we were embracing change, people! May I be so bold as to make a suggestion? We have hundreds of thirsty guests sitting idly by in the hot sun down at Gitmo...Oh, I know full well that there will be some who consider that an enhanced interrogation technique. I, however, have closely reread the Revised Army Field Manual, and can find no regulation specifically prohibiting the serving of an obamanable beer to captive enemy combatants. And so,I say, Prost! Salud! Drink up! There are those who say that the terrorists have already won...and after drinking this beer I am beginning to see their point! Fortunately, once I was finally able to quantitatively ease this beer from my system, I began to feel some small hope for signs of recovery...because I have less-than-no-desire to be "double-dipping" this one!

A mug from the tap at the brewpub - Pours an almost opaque dark brown with a creamy tan head filled with bubbles of all sizes. Lots of lace. The aroma had some light chocolatey malt, burnt toast, soft nuts, and light floral scents. The flavor was much the same, perhaps a dab more chocolate and a light bitterness added. Quaffable.

tmoreau (2465) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Pint at the brewpub bar. Dark mahogany/brown hue, with an off-white íreducing to a small ring" head, and fair lacing. Aroma offered some light roasted and nut notes. Light malt sweetness, molasses, touch of cocoa, and caramel in the flavor. The presence of hop bitterness was mellowed by these more dominant notes. Lively carbonation. A little lighter than medium body. A Zephyred Pullman

Draft at Flossmoor. I was not impressed with this at all. It was pretty mediocre brown ale. No depth of flavor at all. blah.
