Nice brown ale. It has an added bonus of a fruity note hidden in the early mid palate amongst the nutty malty.

Tasted in June ’03 at the brewery and said: "Quite light in color and body for a brown ale. Aromas of coffee and caramel. I not usually a fan of browns, but this one I really liked. The waitress said it was the locals’ favorite." Tried again June ’04 in bottles. Much less impressed. Basically, there’s nothing bad about it, but not much good either. Dark brownish red color, little head. Not much aroma, little hops or malt, basically just not a lot of flavor. Very gulpable, easy to drink.

Pours dark brown with a finger thick off white head. Hazy. Aroma is strong floral hops. Taste is complex. Floral, chocolaty, earthy, slight hops at the end. Mild bitterness and crisp. Love the balance of this beer!

Pleasant aroma and an enticing appearance, but the body is just not full enough for me. It went down real easy, but it didn’t really catch my attention. Certainly above average Brown Ale though.

I really didn’t like the aftertaste--too chemical and dirty. The color is very nice, but the smell was also chemical. I thought I would like this beer a lot and was disappointed, frankly.

A rather negligible scent, but the delectable taste compensates for that. Smooth and creamy texture. Taste consists of roast and caramel followed by a slight bitterness. A fantastic light brown just as the label clearly states. After drinking several, the artwork begins to make sense.

12 oz bottle into pint glass. Head quickly dissapears. Nutty smell. Taste sticks to the back of your tongue. Smooth, roasted nutty flavor with hints of coffee. No lacing to be found. Not bad at all, but nothing special.

very dark brown color with very small head. smooth roasty and nutty taste. slightly sweet but it finishes bitter. very little carbonatation and a fairly week taste. overall this beer is a decent brown ale at best.
