COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The is a pretty beer almost an amber/brown color. A well balanced beer that is great for the summer months. Unlike the porter, this is the beer that put them on the map.

iowaherkeye (2697) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - DEC 23, 2006
22oz bomber from my Secret Santa (Numenor), no date. Pours a clear copper orange with a three finger light beige head. Aroma is of toasted malts and light citrus hops. Flavor is much the same with a slight addition of roasted malts. Lightly bitter finish. A bit thin bodied, moderately carbonated. Not too bad of a beer.

themadmumis (347) - Westminster, Maryland, USA - OCT 7, 2006
On tap... poured rich brown with off white head. Alcohol is blended well with sweet malts and nuts. Very smooth and non-abrasive. I can see this one being very seductive and luring one away before you know it. Solid Brew.

SpringsLicker (3178) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 17, 2006
Thanks to Numenor for this one! A huge rocky head forms above this clear dark amber brew. Light malt aroma that is repeated in the flavor. An unpleasant sourness goes all through this one and makes it a disappointment. A bit light even for a brown ale, this one needs more nutty malts, a bit of body and to be cleaned up a bit.

bubbleflubber (1873) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 5, 2006
On draught at the Tap House in Norfolk, Va. Pours a deep mahogany with an off-white creamy head, 1/8th-inch retention and nice lacing. The bouquet consists of sweet ín sour nutty aromas. Lots of sweet malt upfront, with a hint of nuts, and a subdued caramel finish. The palate is indistinct and a bit muddy. Although a little on the sweet side for a traditional brown ale, overall the brew isnít bad.

shadey (1931) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 26, 2006
Dark amber/brown color with a huge bubbly head. Lots of bubbles trail up the glass from the depths. The aroma is very mild, just a touch of sweetness. Flavor is also very mild with just a touch of nuttiness. A very weak brown ale despite the respectable alcohol level.

aracauna (3160) - Georgia, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Dark, perfectly clear copper. Good off-white head. Malty, very low hoppiness. Slightly astringent. Caramel and a bit of molasses.

guzzler67 (1532) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 1, 2006
Mahogany hued with a medium, tan head and a fair amount of lacing. Aroma of molassas and caramel malts. The taste up front is sweet malts with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. Medium-bodied, well carbonated, with a long lasting finish.

hopscotch (9737) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2006
Draft... ODBF2006... Clear, amber ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Malty nose with some nice, light chocolate notes. The flavor is chocolatey as well. A tad on the sweet side of balance. Medium-bodied and fizzy. Finishes chocolatey and mildly bitter. Did I get around to saying anything about this brew being chocolatey at all?

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 19, 2006
Bottle. Pours murky dark, reddish brown with thick, lasting, off-white head. Aroma. Sweet baked bean-like aroma of brown sugar. Brown-sugary sweetness, with molasses and flavors and gooeyness and a slight burnt-caramel aftertaste. Very little hops, resulting in a lingering sticky sugariness. Malty flavors are tasty, but lacks any semblance of hops for balance.
