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.

brigg (512) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 15, 2010
(bottle) Hazy mahogany body and a big, stiff tan head. Powerful aroma of rich, lightly roasted, sweet chocolate malt. The strong hop aroma is floral and grass/pine. Flavor is earthy but sweet with caramel and slightly smoky. A slight tartness near the back. Body is slightly thin, and soft.

Ratman197 (9828) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2010
Bottle poured a clear brown with a lingering ring of ivory foam. Aromas of carmel, milk chocolate and a hint of nuts. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel, bakers cocoa and light nuttiness with a crisp dry lingering malty finish.

12oz bottle. A good example of the style though nothing spectacular here. Has a nice malty caramel taste and is very drinkable.

12oz bottle–pours a rich light tan head that laces and brown with orange color. Aroma is chocolate-medium malt, earthy, roasty. Taste is chocolate/molasses-medium malt, roasty, secondary earthy/sharp (not quite coppery) hops bite. Medium/full body.

agillespie81 (315) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2009
Dark brown color...almost opaque. Thick, creamy head. Malty aroma, with a faint nuttiness. Pretty transparent malt flavor up front...mouthfeel has a slight crispness. Noticeable hop presence quickly blends into the back. Finish has a long hop tang. Though pretty good overall, this brew is not very typical for a brown ale...somewhat heavy on the hops, while light on the malt.

NJBeerman013 (1050) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - APR 15, 2009
Bottle. Complements of my buddy’s Beer Of The Month Club. Pours a murky brown in color. It has a lighly nutty aroma mixed with a sugary sweetness. It has a bit of a nutty start, fading into a slightly laid back sweet caramely finish.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Bottle. Pours ruddy brown. Flavor has initial nuttiness, and slowly reveals soft malt and roasts. Finishes bitter, perhaps even bordering on plastic-y. OK, but needs work on body and flavor.

crazyvin (1943) - New York, USA - MAR 3, 2009
Typical brown ale. Poured a murky looking brown hue that had a beige head that had great lacing and retention. If it weren’t for the murky pond brown color of the body appearance would have been so much better. Aroma was of a nutty caramel note flavor was similar with some bitter notes. Palate was moderate. Still a nice one.
