smroush (114) - 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.

Ernest (6598) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Can. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, cookie, nuts), with notes of sour apple, bile, rotting/fermenting/souring fruit, toffee. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, very unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic. Infected to hell and back. Utterly undrinkable.

Oakes (13272) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 24, 2014
Light brown colour. Aroma is mild. Taste has a caramel note first, maybe a touch of toastiness. There’s a bit of tartness in the finish that wasn’t evident at the brewery, but is in the can. That’s disappointing. Mild malts are about it, a basic brown.
