Pershing (475) - Garland, Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Medium clear brown with a nice size beige head. Nice malty aroma of caramel and nuts. Medium mouthfeel with a an excellent hop balance without over doing it. Just the way I like American Brown Ales. The finish leaves me wanting more.

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 I’ve 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 it’s meant to be. This is a good beer and it really hits the spot. This is a simple style that I don’t 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.

jhamp9 (1022) - Corinth, Texas, USA - JUN 27, 2012

queenholly (2860) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - JUN 21, 2012
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 (3613) - 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 (5044) - 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.
