4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer pours nicely and has a short lived, frothy head. It has a brown color as the name states. I thought this was a very tasty beer with a hint of nuts in the taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured with a nice frothy head. Brown in color. Sweeter than I remember. I remember it being more nutty previously, but not this time.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2004 (update-on draught) Medium brown ale. Very litle head. Malt taste, a bit sweet. Very little hint of nuttiness. No skunkiness (which I had noted from the bottles, which are unfortunately clear).

UPDATED: APR 27, 2003 Poured a medium brown with little head. Nice sweet malt flavor with little hops evident. It was good, but I don't see why many people I know rave about this beer.

Had this on draft at the Grey Lodge in Phila. I most of the time find browns kinda boring ad this on fits the bill perfectly. Tasted like a beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I found it kinda normal and unexciting. Not bad to drink if someone has it but I won't buy it.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cloying, annoying, brown but fit for destroying. Idiot lager louts give this beer its only bouying.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2012 Light brown with a slightly tan head that disappears quickly. Doesn’t smell very good. A little sweet. 4/3/5/3/11
rerate: A long overdue rerate. I was too hard on this beer, years ago. It is a fine brown ale. Light malt and English yeast. Some caramel. OK palate, making it very drinkable. Really a gateway beer.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Dark reddy brown colour, decent head. Nutty flavour but overall rather sweet and disappointing. Little of the alcohol is evident.

Dark amber color with a mild nutty flavor. A little stronger flavor would have made it better.
