NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 16, 2006
Courtesy of Bück Dich <!-- P --> There is a an off note in the aroma that is a little medicinal and a little vegetal and a lot sharp with sickly sweetness. Maybe some stale Irish moss. Body is a very light amber that never really goes brown and sports a quickly dimihsing white head. Slightly grape/apple fruit accented fore. Extremely watery mouthfeel and flavor. Dry/stale finish is almost expected. Perhaps Hales should follwo the English approach to Brown Ale cause if this is the Irish approach they suck at brown ales.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 11, 2006
Bottle: Clear brown color with light head and average lacing. The nose is lightly herbal with a bit of musky caramel and light hops; a bit of bitter cocoa. The flavor is chewy, lighter in body than I like in a brown with a balanced finish. The flavor is toasty with some light cherry and cardboard notes. Finishes lightly dry, eh, not that great.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAR 23, 2006
Nothing really impressive here. Has kind of a salty peanut butter, sweet caramel maltiness. Bready and creamy, with a really light body. An easy session brown ale.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 10, 2006
Sweet, piney aroma, slightly perfumey; light chocolate and bready malts; subtle nuttiness; light bodied with a hint of creamyness; a little metallic; well balanced; OK.

pinkzambia (1461) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 6, 2006
Bottle: Brown with red tints and a light cream head. Aromas and tastes mainly of sweet malts, but no indication of a "nut" flavor. The sweetness is actually pretty strong like sap from a tree. The body is thin. ok.

IndianaRed (2384) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 3, 2006
Bottle Pours a clear deep mahohany, redish brown. Small but lasting sandy head. Quickly receding sheets of thin lacing. Aroma is sweet, and nutty. Wow, the first sip and the intense carbonation makes me wince. The fizz blows out most of the flavor. Slightly metallic or rusty flavors but woody and nutty also. Fairly thin but decent for a style that I am fond of.

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2006
Pours a nice light orangish brown color. Aromas of toasty malts, brown sugar, and nuts. Flavor is lightly sweet malts and a nice touch of hops, and a nutty finish.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 12, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. Very clear light brown, almost no head. Very sweet malty smell. Slightly bitter nutty taste, very drinkable.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 8, 2005

5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Bottle pours a clear mahogany, medium to large frothy head, decent lacing, with little to no carbonation.   Malty nose, slightly biscuity, and a tad bit roasted.   Maybe light hints of chocolate malt.   Slight malt flavor, a bit sweet, with a hint of carob.   Minor astringency.   Medium bodied, but the mouthfeel seems a bit thin.   Malty finish (albeit thin), semi-sweet, but with a slight sour/astringent twang.   Blech...
