Can shared that poured an unfiltered brown color with big tan head. There is a mild sourness in the nose don’t know if it’s suppose to be there or not. An almost tea scent and hay. The flavor was wretched tinny/coiny caramel sweet and sour disgusting. Could be a bad can but don’t think so.

rosenbergh (10653) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2015
12 oz can. From a grocery store in Honolulu, HI.
Dark brown color with a small tan head. Sweet caramel and darkish malt in aroma but also a hint of sourness lurking there. The flavor is sweet dark malt, mild sourness and mild hops. Boring. Brown ale as it’s... not best.

smroush (220) - Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Small to average light brown head; beer brown in color. Aromas primarily malt, with molasses, caramel and nutty aromas. Hop aromas very light. Medium body; medium sweetness; moderate bitterness; average length finish. Overall a mild, fairly simple brown ale. Pretty much all malt with very little hop presence.
