Tasting from draft at Rockaway Seafood Company. Light bodied and watery. Roasted malt, stale coffee, some sweet malt in the background. Not much to it.

This seems to be showing up at taps all over these days. Pleasant, if slightly heavy, nutty and malty.

Nice copper color with decent off-white head. Caramel malt and toasty nose hint of hop in the aroma. Creamy mouthfeel, sweet with hop balance. My type of brown. Well done.

Union Hall, Brooklyn tap ($5): Pours a brown color with a beige head... looks and feels like a brown ale. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, nuts. Beer is very malty, but has a definite undertone of lager taste. It is almost as if you try to make a brown ale out of a lager. Not overly complex, but drinkable and pretty tasty. A solid beer, if not anything really special.

Pours dark brown, smells of nuts, and roasted barley. Nutty, rich malt flavor with a pack of hops leaving for a crisp finish.

Draught at Village Pourhouse, not a bad beer, has a nice hint of chocolate with a mix of a toasted sugar finishing with a light bitterness.

(Old BA rate - tap)
Half-finger of light tan head; foggy dark brown color. Sweetish malts; light hint of grain and a bit of chocolate. Malty sweetness; grainy-metallic flavors. Thin with muted carbonation. Decent; and I could see this being a decent session brew if the metallic flavor wasn’t there. Otherwise has good potential

Tap at The Living Room, NYC. Nut and caramel aromas come through on a thinly opaque brown body. Has a slightly watery malty and nutty flavor to it. Needs a little more depth and body to stack up against some of the better browns.

Draft at One & One in NYC. I actually missed the word Lager on the tap handle so I had assumed this was actually an English Brown ale. Pours a dark mahogany. Nose is light cocoa and toast. Faded hops are present. On taste, round and soft with toasty melanoidins and a full body. Light hop character. Pretty tasty, really.
