Bottle. Brown ales suck. Clear brown, medium tan head, nice lacing., aroma is brown. Flavor is brown, but actually not too bad. Brown sugar, rice, toffee, coffee. Medium sweet, lacking all bitterness. Medium body, a bit creamy. Ok, this one doesn’t quite suck. So there.

MarkSachon (585) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2013
12 oz bottle from the six type sampler case. Just alright, certainly not in the top of its class. You get what you pay for and this case came pretty cheaply.

Travlr (11812) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 24, 2013

beerbaaron (1244) - Arizona, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Dark dark brown. Medium white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel i suppose, brown sugar. Flavor to match. Light to medium body. Quick finish. Not too impactful.

DrSilverworm (6369) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2013
12oz bottle. Clear dark red / brown color. Thin off-white / khaki head. Moderate carbonation. Medium body. Not an incredible texture. Toasted malt, light hop, light chocolate. Flavor is fine, but not really interesting or appealing. Light sweet taste. Really average beer...

Hophaze (172) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Bottle. Pours amber. Roasted malts. Drinkable. Average at best. This is what Budweiser would be putting out as their "Brown Ale". ----Hophaze out

MaltOne (215) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Not bad for everyday consumption. Aroma - there is one, beery, slightly sweet, vanilla.Nice clear reddish-amber. Lightly toasted, sweet, smooth, a little hops in the aftertaste to offset the sweet, but very little. Pallette is thin and a bit watery. Nice lingering flavor on the tongue. Overall - pleasant for everyday, cool weather consumption. (Bottled as Point Burly Brown.)

Dogbrick (8122) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Sample at Yabo’s Tacos. Pours brown with some amber around the edges and a medium beige head that dissipates quickly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and a bit of chocolate. Light body with flavors of sweet malt, roasted nuts and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a short chocolate malt aftertaste. Average overall.
