Definate maltyness, in the aroma and in the flavor, although the aroma is somewhat fruity while the flavor has more of a nuttyness. Somewhat golden brown in color. No head to speak of. Smooth and clean; goes down nice and easy. My first brown; I will definately be trying more.

Well as I said as I was rating the other Brown Ales is that this is becoming one of my favorite styls to try. I'm glad this isn't my first attempt at a brown ale. It smells tinny when poured, but has the nice brown tint to it. Taste is watery and is easily downed. As browns go this is a nice beginner, but doesn't hold a stick to Bells.

Better than I thought it would be. It had a reddish amber color without much head, a malty, roasty and a bit fruity aroma with flavors of malty caramel with some nuttiness. A good thirst quencher.

Pours a dark copper with good head. Decent malty balance with a slightly chocolate finish. Smooth and enjoyable, but not spectacular. Pretty good though for its wide availability.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mild, sweet malty aroma. Brown/orange/red colour with an off-white fizzy head. Taste is light, mostly sweet malt and caramel with a faint bitter finish. Thin and light-bodied.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2003 This is the mainstream version of a brown ale. I cant complain. Aroma is faint. Appearance is a nice brown. Flavor falls a little flat with a hint of nuttiness. This was the beer that got me away from being a loyal Miller drinker and I owe it a huge debt of gratitude. I still buy it every once in a while and it's my beer of choice at the local Wild Wings. After all the different kinds of beer I've tried I'll still say it's a good beer!

Surprisingly good beer for being in a clear bottle. Light amber color. Small head. Light nut flavor with malty undertones. Good stand-by beer.

This is a no threat Brown Ale. In a bottle the product comes out watery a less malty than the On-Tap experience. No head retention. Crisp, clean and women love it for that reason. Not the best English Brown out there but it goes down smooth and satisfies.

Appearance is true to its name, although the aroma, flavor & palate are nothing to write home about. Starts off smooth then finishes bitter. This beer is at its best when on tap.

Slight, fine head sits atop carmel amber body. Newky brown is an old classic and is almost synonymous with brown ale. Nutty, malty, alcohol notes nicely balanced, but overall, there are much better beers for the money. Beware clear bottle skunkiness.
