Brewed with two-row malted barley, roasted barley and chocolate malt, this classic American brown ale is distinguished by its deep brown color and creamy, smooth taste.

As its name implies, this beer is brown. Luxurious off-white head with similar lacing. Aroma is slight, rather hoppy with some caffe mocha to it. Flavor is extreme butterscotch with more hops than the commercial description would imply. Finish is more chocalatey with a touch of red vermouth. An okay beer, goes down smooth.

A rich mahogany color with small white head. Roasted notes, molasses, and nut aromas. Med weight with a sweet mid palate that dryís and lingers on the finish. Nice roasted flavors with a nut quality and pleasant hops. Not bad at all, might have another!

A decent and servicable brown ale from the frozen north. It has a clean hop finish and a nut like overtone, good but not great

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2008 Bottle pours a rather deep amber color with some residual lace. The aroma is of malt, nuts, and some floral hops. The flavor shows some decent Brown Ale characteristics, a bit nutty, some roasted malt, and some lingering bitter hop flavors with a medium rich body. Overall, not a bad effort.

Pours deep orange brown with initial creamy tan head. Nose is malty with nutty sweetness. Flavor follows suit with somewhat roasted nuttyness balanced by smooth light hop finish.

This was pretty good. It was a clear dark brown with a nice sized head and just enough lacing. It had a hay like aroma. The body was kind of thin with hint of an astringent aftertaste. The flavour was good, a nice balance of malt and roasted flavour. Really reminded me of newcastle.

For the life of me, I cannot tell why people call these brown ales. This isnít brown at all, itís dark red. I mean, itís lighter than black but brown is not just lighter than black, itís brown. That aside, as stated earlier, this beer dark red, some would call it garnet. Itís a nice beer--slightly roasty, not much hops. Itís easy to drink but hardly what Iíd call burley. Very drinkable but forgettable.

Hay chestnut brown w/ creamy beige foam. Good lace. Sweet, nutty aroma w/ hints of licorice & smoke. Thin medium feel. Roasty flavour of chocolate, chicory, & caramel punctuated by hints of licorice, smoke & wood. Long, earthy bitterness.

Smoky aroma, malted, woody warm aroma. Pours ruby amber, big head that did not last to long. Medium light body. Woody , rather thin to bee good . Some soft bitterness . On good track but need more torque .

Dark reddish brown with a moderate off white head. Interesting aroma, with a slightly nutty sweet maltiness with a hint of rast malt. Flavour gets a little bit of everthing foreshadowed by the aroma. Nutty roast lingers in the aftertaste. Palate is pleasant but a bit light in the finish. Nice beer, thanks Obisbeer.
