On tap at the brewpub on 6/22/07 as English Brown Ale: Barely transparent dark mahogany pour has a clingy-lacing light tan head. Aroma of musty dark grain with a hint of tartness. Body is very thin and faintly sweet with hints of nuts and dough, but otherwise pretty bland.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub in Wisconsin Dells as "Moosejaw English Brown Ale," pours a clear dark brown brew with a slowly dissolving off white head with excellent lacing. Aroma has characters of molasses, milk chocolate, chestnuts and a touch of toffee. Taste is like light chocolate, full body, lightly carbonated, light finish with a dry hop aftertaste. Almost a character of a porter without the dark opacity body.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice looking, not much aroma. A little chocolate malt up front and a little bitter hop in the finish. Bland throughout. Not a brown ale fan, so it’s hard for me to be unbiased here, but I don’t find much to get excited about.

GABF 2002: Light chocolate aroma. Deep brown colour. Lght chocolate flavour to start tappering off to blandness with a late bitter resurgence.

Great nutty flavor with a coffee hint but all the dead animal heads on the wall at the pub kept distracting me from truly enjoying this ale.
