"being that this is a pretty nice, nutty brown underneath the raspberries, this is a pretty enjoyable beer. One to get light beer drinkers to switch to the dark side. "

andrewje41 (676) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - SEP 28, 2014
22 Oz bottle poured. Pours a dark reddish brown with a sweet, fresh r ed raspberry aroma. Hint of chocolate there too. Lasting cream like tan head. Sweet, lighter bodied beer with caramel like malt flavor. Raspberry flavor all throughout as expected. Fruity finish. Not a bad beer here. Had to try it, and enjoyed it.

Sevenlee (1411) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - SEP 22, 2014
Pours a brown colour with a beige head. Aroma is malt, fruit, chocolate, caramel and hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a fruity finish. Decent.

mkel07 (3739) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique April 2014. Brown with red flecks throughout. Big hit of sweet raspberries in the aroma carries into the flavour but not as strong.

Nose has plenty of ripe raspberry, but only carries into the taste in great subtlety, and without a hint of additional sweetness. The ideal construction of a fruit beer that is embedded within another style, in my opinion (brown ale, in this case). The flavor of the brew is all easy-drinking nutty malt, just like Downtown Brown, but with a hint of raspberry. Very well done. Not a complicated or exciting profile, but tasty and easy to quaff.

lightbias (169) - USA - JUL 1, 2014
This pours a medium, flat brown with an off-white head, and an unsubstantial lace. A faint aroma of artificial cherries and bad easter chocolate wafts from the glass. The first swallow allows those sweet, tootsie roll pop flavors to drift over my tongue but then burns it with bitter and offers no compensation for it. The body is flat but buzzy, only adding to the wrongness of this beer. I am very disappointed in yet another "fruit" brew.

RedSox2004 (1330) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Medium brown with a small tan head and minimal lace. Pretty strong cherry/raspberry aromas with some light milk chocolate and roasted malt. Slight tartness, less than the smell would suggest, up front followed quickly by cola and malt. The fruitiness seemed a bit manufactured - my compliments to the chemist.
