I think this may be my new favorite of the Lonerider line, a well done brown ale. A transparent brown appearance, doesn’t look too heavy. aroma and flavor likewise is of pleasant intensity, featuring roasted malts, caramel and cocoa notes, maybe some coffee but not consistently present. Finishes again not completely clean but not sticky. Seems to consistently strike a golden mean. I will be sure to sample this again.

Bottle picked up at some point on trip to my folks (I think whole foods in greenville). Dark brown with off-white head. Aroma is roasty malt, nutty, cocoa. Taste is also nutty, but not overly sweet - which is good for me. Also caramel, citrus and chocolate bitter. Little burnt coffee vibe. I’m not a fan of typical sweet browns, but liked this.

Bottle into pint glass, deep ruby brown with tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, caramel, very light coffee, roasty malt sweetness and slight earthy note, Taste brings out more notes of bakers chocolate, nuttiness, char, molasses and earthy hop bitterness. Medium body, low carbonation, dry with bitter roasty finish. Nice dry chocolate, earthy hop leaning brown ale.

On tap from Quince on 10/25/13. Dark brown hue with a light brown mostly lasting head. Good lacing. Malty chocolate taste up front with a light malt/chocolate finish. Toffee hints on the nose. Oily texture with medium alcohol finish on the palate.

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2013
A malt forward aroma with hints chocolate and caramel. Pours ruddy brown with a thin tan head and minimal lacing. The taste roasted malt, chocolate, biscuit, and a nice balanced bitter finish. Full body and moderate carbonation. Overall, a excellent brown ale verging on a porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
