the messiah poured a drak brown in color until held up to a light.then it turned a nice looking ruby red.its funny that this is called a brown ale cuz it smelled a little "brown" when i opened it.but we wont go into that.....i walked away from it a bit.let it sit,and came back.i then recieved an aroma of brown sugar.(and thats alot better)the flavor was really nice,with some brown sugar,hops,and caramel malts.i would be really into this,if it didnt have the initial aroma.

hotstuff (4273) - Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2005
Bottle. Small ivory head that fully diminished, fair lacing, fine-medium sized bubbles, very little carbonation, and a reddish brown hue. Aroma was malty, roasty, caramel, some coffee. The flavor was sweet, caramel, and malty. Smooth mouthfeel. Medium body. Decent and quaffable.

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2005
Reddish brown, tan head. Yeasty/spicy aroma. Some roastiness, herbal hops, slight sourness, bitter finish. Medium-light body. Not bad but not great.

MillStreetMan (152) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2005
This is essentially the big brother of the Genesis ale, with the same basic flavour, but, as the name would suggest, it is a bit bolder and darker. At the end of the day, however, it is ultimately a generic brown ale.

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 11, 2005
Bottle. Brown color with a bit of red. Sweet toasted malt aroma with a similar taste. Finishes clean. Not too interesting, but not bad.

JMerritt (1842) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2004
Dark brown with flecks of garnet. Head is initially medium and light brown, but quickly fades to nothingness like the head of a quickly poured soda. Slight whiffs of brown sugar and roasted malt in the aroma. Mildly sweet flavor, again with brown sugar and molasses notes, with a moderately roasty finish. Traces of aspirin in the aftertaste. Very lightly bitter. Carbonation is a touch too high, and the body is rather thin.

mds (2240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2004
bottle. deep brown colour with a tinge of red. aroma of roasted malt, rasins, caramel, and plums. Flavour is sweet and malty with notes of caramel. the body is a little bit thin. pretty good

Braudog (5902) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - DEC 19, 2004
Dark chestnut brown with airy but firm head. Thin consistency, but pretty solid nutty and bittered flavors here. This is a good brown ale.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2004
Good sweet malt and caramel, floral hops, and a bitter finish. Not as enjoyable as the more bitter amber Genesis Ale, but again a pleasant surprise. I had expect the beers to be some sort of joke or novelty item; they are both pleasant, drin\kable ales.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 27, 2004
Reddish brown with a small head. Good aromas of sweet caramel malts. Medium-thin feel with more roasted malts, some hops and an overall nutty flavor. Good balance of flavors, not bad for a brown, which I usually find unimpressive. Thin, sour finish.
