Smells kinda hoppy with hints of pine. There are also notes of malts in there that give it a nice roasty flair. Smells delicious. Moderately hazy mahogany color with a small off-white head. Thin, vinous, smoked tastes. Hints of chocolate. Decent.

bottle...slightly murky light mahogany with a medium tan head. Malty aroma (brown sugar), and also some roasted hints. Beginning has a little hop essence leading to a roasted malt middle yielding a nice dark chocolate bitter to finish. This is one of my favorite styles, and a good representative.

Hazy mahogany brown in color with a large off-white head. Acidic, citrus aroma with subtle fruit and toasted malt notes. Hoppy yet mellow malt charcater.

on tap at some diner in southern vermont. this is a brown ale? damn- that is news to me. i seriously thought this was an ipa. dark in color, hoppy smelling. hoppy taste, very bitter. goes down like an IPA, and i consumed it in large amounts like it was one. this was a damn fine beer that was the best beer i had on my trip. (although not the best i bought i believe).

Unfiltered brown. Pours nice brown with decent tan head. Nice roasted malt and chocolate taste followed with warm hoppy alcohol bite. Thanks OldGrowth.

Cloudy dark chestnut with small but resilient tan head. Tart flavor lasts througout as does a lite nutty flavor. Long sharopy bitter and very dry finish.

Kind of muddy red color, pleasing aroma. Nice hop bitterness finishes off a fairly malty taste. Has a lot of similarity to Long Trail Ale/ OC Copper / other alt-German type ales I've tried. Hallertau hops in this? I really enjoyed this one.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2003
A reddish brown color, dark but not opaque, medium creamy lasting off-white head. A west coast/ English hop aroma( Northdown?) This is a brown?, more of a west coast amber. Still I liked it but it is nothing special. a homemade label if you like that.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 7, 2003
Dark copper brown color with a thin lacey white head. Aroma is of thick chewy caramel and some roasted malt. Body starts syrupy, but thins out due to a lack of carbonation. Good sweet caramel malt presence and a crisp, lightly hoppy finish make this a respectable brown ale.

Good mahogoney brown. Hazy. Not much head. Good nutty aroma, but allowing beer to warm is definitely recommended to fully appreciate. Fairly hoppy for a brown ale. Some coffee notes.
