Clear brown body with a very thin white head. The aroma is very light but sweet. Malt and maybe some brown sugar. Light bodied and thin with lively carbonation. Malty sweetness dominates the pleasant flavor with caramel and brown sugar. The finish is a bit bitter. This is a good beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 3-10-2011 (Bottle) This beer has a medium sized frothy, fizzy tan head that mostly diminishes, transparent reddish brown body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, roasted, nutty, and a hint of dark fruits. The taste is nutty, caramel malt and roasted. The mouthfeel is tingly carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is easy to drink but needs some character to help improve on the flavor.

A- Light, toasty, chocolate.
A- Dark brown color, dark liquid, minimal head.
T- Roasty, slightly malty, subtle chocolate.
P- Medium body, thin texture, soft carbonation, smooth finish.
O- Not too memorable. Not a bad brown ale, but lacking a lot of qualities. A little on the thin side too. The flavor is good, but not great. It’s almost there.

Needs more flavor, aroma, body. You know, just more of everything. This beer was just too thin. By nature, brown ales tend to me mild. Still, this one is far too much of a minimalist to recommend.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle - Pours deep dark brown with a thin light tan head. Nose is toasted dark bread, mellow yeastiness, muted caramel, some plastic. Yeah, not all that great. Taste is mineral and dry dark bread, slightly toasted with some metallic notes, a little plastic, and a hint of chocolate. Finishes dry and slightly yeasty. Thin and watery, with limp carbonation.

Pours a ruby brown with a decent off white head. Pretty good brown ale. Initial flavor was good but ended a little watery and tasteless.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Nose is light and toasty, with a slight bit of bitterness in there and an every so slight bit of roasting. Taste is a little bitter and slightly burnt, like some over-roasted coffee. Meh.

I don’t usually like brown ales (or brown eyes for that matter). Did I like this? Not so much. I would think gargling with battery acid would be worse.......or not. Just kidding...this stuff is GREAT (not). If Val Blatz didn’t make brown ales, why should anyone else? An exercise in futility. Stick with Blatz & your brown eye will thank you in the morning.
