loubar (157) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 9, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2015 16 oz. can from Whole Foods. Nose is inviting with faint coffee, caramel and yeast Taste opens with earthy tones, a hint of chocolate and toasted brown bread. Somewhat malty, good carbonation and semi drying close. All in all, not earth shattering but a tasty, very drinkable and exemplary brown ale.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - OCT 26, 2014
12oz can - Aroma - white sugar bag, brown bread mix, mineral water and tea leaves Appearance - deep mahogany brown body, semi-clear, super light tan head, light retention Mouthfeel - medium body, light carbonation, somewhat dull, yet sticky Flavor - something weird here. Tea leaves, banana, light cocoa, seems overly sweet. Overall - while very affordable, it was a let down and frankly a poor example of a pedestrian style of beer. How does one mess up a brown ale?

Fatehunter (2215) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Pours two fingers of light tan head on a brown-red body. The aroma has lots of roasted and toasted malt. The taste is milky, roasted malt, nutty, mild lemon bitter. Great balance. Smooth texture with low carbonation. An excellent brown.

Prufrockstar (1967) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Draft at LAX. Clear brown pour, minimal head. Thin malty aroma of roast and biscuit. Taste is moderately sweet with lightly roast bitter finish. Light body, texture is thin, average carbonation. Overall: unremarkable in every way.

This is a very grassy malty beer that is a bit too much of both of those for me. Not that good.

slowrunner77 (9953) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 10, 2014
UPDATED: APR 1, 2015 A nice easy drinking but adequately roasty and flavorful brown ale. Not THEIR best brew, but a bit of a standout in a normally boring style for me..." Even better 2nd time around.

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Beer Bloggers Conference - San Diego - Brown in color, clear with a thin head. Nice brown ale with a great flavor. Sweet with a light smoke.

kidmartinek (4631) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Chalky deep brown color. 1/4" off-white head. Aroma is all full of coffee. Initially the flavor is too before it turns to a meaty dark maltiness with a side of bitterness. The finish trends up to sweet.

robertjm (847) - Albany, California, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Nice thick tan head. Deep burgundy colored body. Good malty aroma. Malts carry over into the flavor as well. Definitely a good example of a brown in my book. Only bought a single can. But, will definitely buy the whole four-pack the next time around that I’m looking for something not loaded with hops.

Defreni (2996) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2014
Fad: I lufthavnen i LAX. Den sidste øl på min USA tur, men den første der bliver skrevet ind. Brun surprise med et fint skumhoved. Duft af malt og let sødme. Smagen er bland med en fin mundfylde. Meh, men den får lidt ekstra point fordi det var den sidste og jeg ikke havde regnet med det tick.
