12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours brown with a lacy, light beige head. Aroma of caramel and lightly nutty malts, plus a little floral hops. Flavor about the same. Average texture. A decent beer.

12-oz. Thanks, Bob! Pours a hazy dark brown with a loose tan head. Nice fresh malty molasses and graham cracker nose with a bit of fresh hop showing. Creamy medium body with wooly carb. Sweet bready mid-palate with toasty herbal finish. Quite nice.

A deep brown brew with good carbonation and a light tan head that goes to lacing. Light nutty aromas. Mouthfeel is medium and flavor is very nice roasty-nut. Well made and very drinkable. another solid Ipswich brew!

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 16, 2011
Bottle thanks to AirForceHops: Pours a clear deep copper mahogany with a spotty-lacing froth of off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasted nutty nose with a touch of British hops and hint of fruitiness. Starts with a good mild sweetness and toasted maltiness well-balanced with lightly piny bitterness before a crisp bittersweet finish. An enjoyable, true to style, and very drinkable brown ale.

LiteWait (267) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 27, 2011
12 oz bottle from AirForceHops’ collection. Poured with a thick overflowing head that left lots of lacing. Color is dark like rootbeer. Aroma of sweet nuts and malt. Taste is malt in the front and walnuts in the finish. Crisp carbonination. As it warms the nuttiness is more apparent in the finish. My first Brown Ale and I like it! Thank you.

12 oz. bottle. Dark brown color, nearly opaque. Thin, white, creamy head. Great lacing and presentation. Malty aroma, with a faint nuttiness. A nice light, malt flavor up front...mouthfeel has a slight crispness. Noticeable hop presence quickly blends into the back. Finish again has a nice hop taste as it warms, with a slight nuttiness. Very well done brown ale.

halfonit (1162) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Pours a clear brown color with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma is of chocolate malts, nuts, caramel, and leaves. Flavor is a little more bitter consisting of malts, earthiness, light nuts, and hard English water. Leaves a harsh malt finish. More of a session style brown ale.

danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Served from a 12 oz bottle thanks to JT. The appearance is a hazy nut brown with a medium light tan head. The nose has some nice English hop aromas, caramel, a toasted malts. The flavors are light with English hops, some tea leaves, and nutshell flavors. Fairly bitter for a brown ale. A light-to medium bodied mouth makes for a refreshing drink.

Big thanks to LilBeerDoctor for helping me procure this sample! Smell is simply clean. Nice looking darker beer. Taste starts off like wet roasty old campfire wood. This elevates to a medium back of throat bitterness. Later, this beer comes across almost like an ESB or sumthin. A smoother bitter drink that possesses a creamy CO2 feel. Mild at times and at other times a bit more personality. Finish is somewhat hoppy for lack of a better description. Lots of personality on the finish too, has a little more wake up than most nut browns. Very glad to have had the chance to taste this, thanks LilBeerDoctor, you rock!

12 oz bottle (thanks to Pam). Pretty basic here, and definitely more of an English amber/brown. Some nutty caramels, English grains and grass, with a faint citrus in the background on the nose. A very light bubbling off-white head on the pour, some carbonation, a lighter body, and dark amber in color. It starts off fairly creamy and malty, then blends into a crisper grassy bitter that finishes a bit off with some copper. Notes also of malted English amber grain malts, caramel, nut, and some slightly acidic citrus. So overall, not too exciting with a few weak points. Very ok.
