From a can poured an amber color with a good amount of head. Nice hoppy flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

Cloudy brown beer, little bubbly off white head. Slightly crisp palate. Malt and minerals. Trace amount of citrus. Dry finish. Deathly dull.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Pounder can from Capone’s. Pours turbid mahogany with 2-finger khaki head. Nose is earthy vienna malt, not much else. Tastes of vienna/munich brown malt, earthy notes, nuts, mild hops. Fair complexity for a brown ale. A good example of a somewhat boring style.

Capa (1943) - Manama, BAHRAIN - FEB 9, 2013
Medium, pale brown with a small creamy tan head. Aroma is hoppy, pine, light malt, a bit of sweetness. Medium thin body. Flavor is more hop than malt. Pine, citrus, and a bit of caramel malt with light chocolate. Solid brown but a little too hoppy for my tastes.

Deep coppery brown color with an off-white head. Very balanced with sweet malty flavors and crisp hops in the finish. Nice and punchy.

16 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours lightly hazy reddish brown color with a nice 2 finger dense cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, toast, brown sugar, nuttiness, light roast, brown bread, slight pine, and floral hops. Very nice aromas with good balance, strength, and complexity. Taste of chocolate, caramel, toast, nuttiness, brown sugar, brown bread, light roast, light pine, and earthy floral hops. Slight earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, caramel, toast, light roast, brown bread, brown sugar, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice flavor balance, robustness, and complexity; with zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and very smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice brown ale! Very nice balance and robustness of flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

This is an okay beer out of half acre. Very bitter with a wicked aftertaste. Chios for a craft beer but not their best ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
