(bottle) Crisp brown ale with refreshing taste. But nothing to get excited about, in short, their are many browns I would drinkl before this.

much better than their genesis ale, this brown was a good tasting, easy drinking brew. roasted flavor leans it more towards a porter in flavor, as far as a brown its a little darker than newcastle with similar qualities.

12oz bottle. Brown, ruby color with small tan head. Roasted malt aroma, some sweet dark fruits. Slight bitter grainy taste with a little dark fruit, plum, and heavy cloying sweetness. Med body and little carb. Not that great and kind of making me sick.

In the bottle from Beertopia. Pours black with a thin off white head that looks white from the contrast. Thin body and surprisingly boring. This definitely is my least favorite HeíBrew beer. Mild roasted taste, but little else. A snoozer.

My first reaction was nit had an initial metallic taste. It didnít have the malt smoothness ihave learned to expect from a Brown. It seemed to be over-hopped, leaving a hop dominant aftertaste.

This beer didnít have a ton of taste. Any taste would come from limited bitter hops. Otherwise, it was a drinkable beer, but I wouldnít get it again.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a small tan head. The aroma was sweet, malty and had a bock like element. The flavor was dry, bitter, roasty and a bit smoky. The finish was long and dry. Everything I generally dislike in a brown ale.

Glad I had the opportunity to give this one a shot. I believe it wil be a once and done for me. Not saying itís awful but I guess itís not one of my bests. Nice dark pour with a briefly lasting caramel looking head. Aroma is malty with tons of honey goodness. Mouthfeel was a bit of a disappointment for me. I expected it to be more full bodied. Itís not. What it is is a light, crisp drinkable ale with some pretty decent flavors that leave you a little on the dry side. Definitely not a drain pour for me. but one I wonít be buying again.

Nice brown color with decent sized tan head. Aroma was diacetyl and malt. Taste wasn't much different. Flavors of caramel, molasses, light smoke and roasted coffee.

Another funny label with sayings and fun blurb. Pours copper with no appreciable head. Aroma had highlights of chocolate and citrus. Flavor was slightly sweet and mellow but unremarkable. More care should have been put into making the beer than designing an interesting label. Again, points for chutzpah.
