UPDATED: JAN 17, 2004 Overall a pretty good beer, but lacks a long lasting flavor. Has a nice reddish tint to the color, but good flavor.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2003
From Hollingshead Deli in Orange, CA. Pours a dark brown color with a medium thick and foamy light brown head. Minimal head retention and lacing. Aroma is alternatingly malty and nutty. Sweet roasted malt and caramel flavors. Finish is pretty weak and was not sustained throughout the glass. I found myself uninterested by the end. Still it starts out pretty well so that is worth something.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - FEB 28, 2003
Pours a very deep, clear brown color with a small, tan, fizzy head that does not linger. The aroma is all hops, with just a touch of malts. Medium body with medium carbonation, the flavor is mostly hops up front, with a touch of caramel in the background. The finish is malty and slightly nutty, with a touch of hop bitterness. Not a bad brown ale, smooth and drinkable but still retains some robust flavors.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2003 What a stellar session beer. Don't expect Belgian bliss, but for a really great beer to drink all afternoon while working at just about anything, look no further. Extraordinarily drinkable American brown.

Nice dark brown color. Great taste. Looks like it's a flat beer, but tastes like it has just enough carbonation and alcohol content.

delacerveza (157) - Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2003
rich brown color, roasty, malty aroma. has a light mouthfeel and is very drinkable. it has that particular rich malt flavor that i really like, whatever it is. (similar to north coast's acme brown and/or flying fish's dubbel)i'll buy this again.

Oristo (67) - Orinda, California, USA - FEB 8, 2003
Light but sweet aroma. Hints of nuts malts. Rich tan head settling down to a thin layer with light lacings. Great deep brown color. Malty, nutty, bready flavor with just enough hops to cut the sweetness. Lovely if a little light on the tongue and quick on the finish. Good lasting back-tongue finish but little in the mouth and a fairly dry mouth-feel

TheRimmer (483) - Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2003
Nutty, yeasty, sweet aroma. Moderately thick and full body with minor hints of blandness. Light nutty taste on the tongue and a generous nutty flavor lingers in your mouth like listerine after you swallow it. Possibly the darkest brown i've ever had. Peachy keen.

nutty metallic aroma, DARK brown, full on nuttiness with a pretty full body, a dissapointing slightly metallic finish

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - FEB 2, 2003
The bottle says "Light Brown ale". Frankly thats a load of poo. Deep chestnut color with a Loose tan head. Bready nutty nose with a little floral hoppieness. Little bit of hazelnut and walnut, bready malts with slight floralness. Mineraly soft mouthfeel and lingering delicate fresh bread, nuts, and hop flower. Wonderfull session beer.
