Up in WI last week to visit family and my brother had a mixed 12 pack from these guys. This was the first of them Iíve tried. 12oz bottle, poured into a tall pilsner glass as that was all that was available at the time. Pours a clear dark brown. Thick 2-finger head atop. Nose was sweet with dark malts, grains, caramel candy. Semisweet toffee, breads, mild finish. Mild bitterness present, as this is sweet as itís meant to be. This is a good beer and it really hits the spot. This is a simple style that I donít visit enough. I like it.

This is a pretty thick brown ale with a fairly heavy coffee element to it. Just heavier than it should be or what I wanted anyway.

pours a rich reddish brown with a persistent beige head. Aroma is musty biscuit. Taste is malty with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Not bad at all.

Pours clear mahogany with a big but quickly fading tan head. Aroma is soneroast and caramel. Taste is nuts, caramel, and some hop bitterness. Thin body.

Bottle. Sweet caramel malt and light molasses aroma. Clear chestnut with a small beige head, some spotty lacing. Nutty, roasty caramel malt flavor with a very slight bitterness in the finish. Light, crisp body, tingly carbonation. Everything about this was a little on the light side, but sometimes I prefer a lighter brown ale. Today was a hot day, and this was exactly what I wanted.

nearbeer (3432) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 13, 2012
12 oz bottle. Way-too large spongy foam atop a clear mahogany body. Earthy-spiced molasses and dry grass in the aroma. Taste is watered down cola, dry grass, and spicy molasses. Near-medium body is smooth with low carbonation (plus) and to the sweet side (minus).

Suttree (4905) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Very dark brown, huge white head. Smells like caramel and brown sugar. , with a touch of cinnamon. Flavor is not as sweet as the aroma would indicate, with more hoppy bitterness. Actually not bad.

kathouse (811) - Nevada, USA - MAY 24, 2012
nice reddish amber with a off white foam Foam died quickly to a thin film. Aroma is mild cereal with a hint of nut. Flavor is subdued caramel. Bready with medium body and earthy hop finish.

Pours average in all accounts. Almost no smell whatsoever - have to take deep whiffs to detect any sort of aroma, which ultimately is somewhat chocolate and toffee-like. Tastes like Newcastle Brown Ale light, but again, have to search and search and search for flavor! Címon! May not be skunky, but with this much lack of flavor, Iíll still take Newcastle, not to mention other better brown ales Iíve reviewed. Aftertaste is a little better - some bread - but I shouldnít have to *search* that *long* for smell or flavor. Not impressed!

Pours, as one would expect, a brown. Aroma is sweet, as is the flavor. Not a whole lot more to it.
