Although I don't pick up the standard but brown characteristics, this is a great beer that provides a lot of drinkability.

Pint on tap. Mahogany color. no lacing, small head fades off, clear-ish. Nice sweet malty aroma, nice slightly toasty taste with no hop bitterness--middle-of-the-road for the style; points for complexity. They make beer in Nebraska? I’m impressed!

Draft at the brewpub. Malt forward. Bready American yeast aroma. No hop character in the nose. Taste is a nice malty sweet, light chocolate, mild caramel blend. Good session drinker.

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Aromas of toasted malts and caramel, with hints of nuts and suggestions of coffee. When held to the light, the pour is a clear but dark reddish-brown with a short-lived tan head and minimal lacing. M-m-m This a very tasty brew considering the ABV. Its malt forward in flavor - toasted malts, nuts, bread, and caramel. Medium body and moderate carbonation. In summary, my first beer from Nebraska and it was worth the wait. The is not flat like Newcastel.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 9, 2014
12oz can. A pretty solid US brown ale. Malty, easy going, clean...yet some decent depth. Nutty, caramel brown malts,maybe a touch of amber malt, all very judicious. Medium bodied, filtered, quite drinkable. Good.

BiddleBrau (962) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Transparent brown with just off white head. Caramel, toffee and toasted malt nose. Malt sweetness, toasted with a dry hop flavor finish. Super easy drinking with nice flavor. Not SSNB memorable but tasty.

degbert (1201) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Can. Pours a really clear and lovely medium brown with a soft, fine-grained, off-white, lacy head. Nose is smoke, dust, roast, and nutty yeast. Dry and rich without being overwhelming on the tongue; smoke, black tea, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and roast pecans. Finish is long, clean, and a touch tannic. Really good example of one of my favorite styles. I could drink a lot of these.

12 oz can courtesy of my friend Mike. Poured into a nonic pint glass. Clear dark reddish color with a finger of beige head. Aromas of caramel, malt, a little roast, some chocolate. Tastes of caramel, chocolate, sweet malt, some roastiness. Medium body with a dry finish. Medium-light carbonation. Solid and very drinkable.
