COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A deep, bold nut brown ale beautifully balanced with rich dark malts and a complex hop character converging to reveal a simply enchanting elixir.

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 (1803) - 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.

Braudog (5748) - Hampton, Virginia, 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.

Clear, dark copper body with minimal beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, some toffee, faint nutty. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, nutty, light roasty, molasses. Medium body, lightly sticky.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2005 You should know that I am not a big fan of Brown Ales, although I will drink it ocassionally because Newcastle is so available even in Bud/Miller establishments. Great looking beer, smells great but you really have to inhale. Good, full mouthfeel. Hops are light-medium and dissapate quickly leading to a malty/molasses taste with a strange aftertaste. Overall a good solid beer but overpriced because of the kitschy/funny packaging. Probably a step up from Newcastle but not by much. Says it is kosher, but that could be part of the schtick - what would not be kosher in beer??

Thanks to Darkover for the trade. Pretty gimmicky name, yes? Pours a dark brown color with a thin beige head. Thin lacing rings. The aroma is nutty and roasty. Medium-bodied with toasted malt, hops and a bit of fruit in the flavor. The finish is lightly malty with just a hint a hops. Overall this is an average Brown Ale.
