Cloudy brown with a small white head. Smell caramel, malt and grapefruit. Taste some caramel and malt. Bitter tasting and drying.

Brown in color but somewhat Amber in taste. Crystal and caramel malt forward. Toasted bread and earthy notes. Odd yeast character. Semi sweet round mouthfeel. Decent finish.

jgb9348 (4635) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2004
Amber coloured body with a thin tan head. Aroma of caramel, malt and mushrooms. Light to Medium-bodied; Decent mild earthy flavours with some sweetness, but not much. Overall, not as great as expected, but good to try, as this is a rariety. Thanks very much to Phil (haddon90) who gave me this bottle long ago and I kept it for something special. I sampled this 65 cL bottle on 15-May-2004 at the May RB Party in Toronto, Ontario.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2004
Some spice and some sweet barleywine-like characteristics hit me from this basic brown brew. Seemed kinda like a nut-brown ale as I got into it - earthy and caramel and malty right through the slightly too sweet finish. Not bad - cheers Jeremy.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2004
If I’m going to brew a brown, this is what I want it to taste like. This is a bottle of pure goodness. Nice sweet malt taste with an all so subtle hop bite. Yeast, bready, chewy and everything I love. I love you guys.

Medium amber color, average beige head. Aroma is quite malty, pretty sweet. Flavor is a little more toasty, but lighter. Delightfully smooth. A nice beer.
