Tasted 7/8/11. 22oz bomber. Thanks to phaleslu for sharing! Pours filtered with a brown, bronze hue. Webbed tan head. Aromas of spices and pepper, but very faint. Medium bodied and rather mild. Soft effervescence and kind of thin. Mildly metallic with the faintest hint of piney hops. Decent enough.

Very standard brown ale. Good example of the style. Not overly nutty or caramel notes, mild on all fronts. But lacking body fullness. From Trader Joes Berkeley. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a bomber bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a bubbly, active pour and a mostly clear brown body with a significant ruby-amber hue and a good-sized bubbly tan head with shorter retention and lighter cling and lacing. Its aroma featured caramel malt, along with fruity scents, including raisin and some banana, and a good bit of barley. It was mostly sweet and malty with a caramel flavor along with some very light grainy bitterness and a few notes of fruits and raisin. Its body was fairly wet and watery with low to average carbonation and a lighter, thinner mouthfeel. Thank you Linda for the gift!

The aroma on this beer is wonderful, one of the best brown ale aromas I’ve experienced. Tons of chocolate with bready malt backbone semingly munich malt like. Clear brown ale with toasted head. The flavors lack the depth or power of the aroma however is balanced with moderate roast, mild chocolate, grassy malt flavors, and grassy herbal hop undertones. The palate is wonderful but slightly over-bitter. Overall for value this is a great beer. There are better browns but this one is solid and quite enjoyable.

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Trader Joe’s. Aroma is weak bread, caramel and brown sugar. Appearance is clear dark mahogany with trace sparkle, two finger-width foamy beige head with good retention and minimal lacing. Taste is like aroma--like brown bread. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, soft to average carbonation and sweet, malty finish. Overall, a straightforward, standard brown ale that is decent but nothing special.

Great brown ale for the price. Nothing to write home about but great to pick up whenever we got to Trader Joes.

Not too much aroma. Very mellow flavour, some hot alcohol in the finish. Caramel and dark chocolate. There’s something that’s not quite right but it’s very hard to say exactly what. A touch acid-metallic? or something. Still, not a terrible beer overall.
