Beaver (1648) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 21, 2016
12 oz can. Pours light ruby brown with a medium fluffy light tan head that retains well and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is toasted chocolate malts with a little nuttiness.

The flavor is sweet toasted chocolate and caramel malts with some graininess and a bit of a metallic twang. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.

Overall, an OK brown with some off notes.

Can. Brown. Malty nose. Dark sweet bready, dark fruity, almost dubbel- like plummyness, sweet nutty nose. Light med bodied. Easy, bit thin flavoured. Brown malty nutty flavour. Ok, clean and all. Bit thin overall still.

Can pour into shaker pint glass from Manchester Wine and Liquors. Appearance is hazy reddish-brown with effervescent sparkle (like a soft drink), finger-width beige head with poor retention and trace lacing. Aroma is nutty caramel/toffee, hint of chocolate (like chocolate almond ice cream). Taste is light caramel malts, late nuttiness. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin texture, soft carbonation and dry, fairly bland finish. Overall, the appearance and aroma had my hopes up but the taste is not as interesting as aroma and palate is pretty weak.

nearbeer (4877) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 20, 2016
12 oz. can. Deep reddish-brown with a thin film of bubbles. Nose is toffee, maple syrup and apple. Tastes of toasted pecan, brown sugar, apple, lactose and a touch of dry cocoa. Light-plus body has too much fizz and an OK balance.

Frank (4007) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2016
This looks pretty nice w/ a long-lasting creamy head but that’s its chief highlight. This has a slight bit of roast and some caramel flavor but generally just comes off as sweet and heavy, which isn’t helped by very mild carbonation. It is a bit oily and finishes a bit watery w/ just a hint of bitterness and some lingering sweetness. This isn’t undrinkable but I likely won’t be drinking it again.

Palme (4120) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2016
On tap @ Top Hops. This is a near clear mild brown looking one with a tall lasting and quite lacing off-white head. Smells good. It’s mainly dark malty, a little nuts perhaps. It has a mild oily texture in the mouth and it’s just about average on the carbonation. Much the same going on in the taste. Dark malty, a little sweet chocolate wrapper and mild yeast nutty tail. Lightdrinkable, not very memorable to be honest. 18.06.2015

12 Fl. Oz. Wide Mouth Can. Poured clear, reddish brown, big tan head that left nice lacing. Aroma of malts, nuts and hints of fruit. Taste is quite malty, certainly sweet, some nuts and some fruits; quite earthy. Easy to drink, very clean finish... Very good.

voyageurmike (283) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2016
Poured from a can. Dark ruby brown with yeasty aroma. Medium bodied at best, too thin to be a serious brown ale. Roasted malt flavor with sweet finish. Tolerable but unexciting.
