On tap, pretty dark pour with this head. Iím so used to nut brown ale aftertaste that this beer really surprised me. Out has a sweet caramel flavor that I think I secretly wanted in a brown ale. I wish it had a better aroma, it would have recieved a higher total score. One of the better browns Iíve had. Easy to drink.

On tap. Pours with a small head, dissipates fairly quickly but maintains nice lacing. Smooth mouthfeel with nice level of carbonation - enough, but not too much. Lightly sweet and malty, but not overpowering. Roasty, but stops short of a porter or stout. A simple brown, but a good one.

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 17, 2013
A finger of light tan head on a fairly clear brown colored body. The aroma is chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. It smells like a porter. The taste is mild bitterness, roasted malt, chocolate sweetness and finishes on a bitter note. A good profile. The texture is crisp with a little cream. The carbonation is on the higher, fizzy side. Overall a good brown ale.

Tap at Yard House in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. Pours a clear, deep amber. Weak foam. Nose is sweet chocolate, maple, vegetal/DMS. Taste is sweet and sticky with hazelnut, maple, brown sugar. Suddy, dry finish. Eh.

Elwood (3027) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a clear light brown with a large light tan head. The nose has a touch of nuttiness with slight vegetal notes. The flavor has a touch of light roast with a nice nuttiness and simple earthy bitterness. Light to medium body with average carbonation and a medium finish. A pretty straight forward brown ale. Itís success is in itís simplicity.
