12 ounce can
This was a respectable release from Jackie O’s that did not involve barrel aging or sourness. If it were more easy to find I would buy some. I will have to look at Lizardville next time I am in Cleveland to see what other canned offerings they have available.
Aroma / Appearance - A reddish brown base fills the glass with melted chocolate. Sandy tan head sits on top like handfuls of sawdust. Chocolate pudding, malt, and tea dregs flesh out a fresh feeling brown ale that brightens the air without being heavy.
Flavor / Palate - Malt rides on a wave of fresh brewed iced tea. A light bitter finish wraps up a balanced release that is easy to drink from start to finish. It may not be the greatest brown ale on the market. Even so this is a sign that there is more going on in Athens than just big sours and stouts.

Can from Jackie O’s. Pours a deep brown with an off-white head. Nose is toast, some honey, earth, and a hint of dark chocolate. Flavor is similar with chocolate, honey, toast, slight raisin, and some bitterness on the back end. Interesting brown ale.

That’s what I call a brown ale! So damn happy to finally see Jackie Os in a store near me, because I’ve seen good reviews on their stuff for years! Very complex brown with a considerable malt backbone--with just enough hop stiffness. 1st try form Jackie Os / 12oz can.

Sticky feel on the palate. Mild to moderate bitter finish. Medium to full bodied. Pretty solid brown ale.
