Headbanger (3226) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2014
12oz bottle (Old Notes-Best Brown Brewed by Gritty McDuff’s)-Pours a dark amber almost brown with a small head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste of the same but very weak. This light bodied brew is really not that good

rondphoto (1782) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Clear dark amber with a small ivory head, a few dots of lace. Taste is mostly caramel malt with minimal bittering in the finish. Pretty standard, and somehow a little dull. Not bad, just not good.

Reddish brown color with no head retention. Lacks the malty taste you’d expect from a brown ale. Very little flavor overall. Big disappointment.

TATE (285) - Lubec, Maine, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep amber color with a thin tan head. Molasses aroma. One of my favorite styles and one of my favorite breweries. Full bodied, a bit or raisin flavor. While being full bodied, it goes down easy and has a bit of a hop finish for a good balanced brown ale.

cfrancis (2249) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2012
This pretty much blows as a brown. Pours a light brown with a small off white top. Aroma is faint nut and toasted malts. Taste is non offending but extremely boring. Blitzed through these fast.

12oz into a pint. Pours a caramel brown shaded picture, taste is light caramel, browned malts, chewy and dry granola, and no real hop presence. A sub par brown here with nothing particuarlly outstanding. I dont know much about htis lions head thing, only the happy grittys guy on the best brown label. At least hes happy about the brown.
