COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Bottle from BevMo, Phoenix. Nutty, roasted malt aroma with some caramel malt. Pours medium brown with a large tan head and good lacing. Caramel malt up front with some nutty flavors. Finishes dry with the roasted malt coming through strongly and lingering on the palate. Decent brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lubiere (10467) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2013
A clear reddish brown ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet fruity caramel malt with light maple notes, woody, so-so. In mouth, a sweetish nutty malt with no hops, watery, boring. On tap at brewery.

Opaque dark brown with an out-of-control head that stays at four whipped cream fingers for 15 minutes; swirls of lace. If this is a brown ale, it is on illegal steroids. Heavy, filling, roasted malt with overtones of coffee and chocolate, bitter coffee finish.....isn’t that a description of a stout, or at least a porter? Fair, not great.

Arizona tick. So a brown ale is just a lighter roasted brew. Took me about 13 years of drinking them to come to this "epiphany." Pours a light clearish brown with small white head. Scent is watered down coffee. Roasty and slightly sweet flavor. Light-Medium mouthfeel with just a touch of carbonation. Bottle - Ale Yeah! - Decatur, GA

12 fl oz / 355mL bottle into a pint glass. Served cold. Aroma: Kind of a mild chocolate and toffee. Appearance: Dark ruby/brown translucent body with a light tan, creamy head. Very nice lacing. Taste: Not nutty. I’m not sure how to describe it. It’s kind of like soy sauce, or hot sauce-y. It’s better than it sounds, but it’s not very good. Palate: Pretty light bodied. Abrupt finish. Overall: Kind of disappointing. I was looking forward to a nice, nutty brown ale. I tried to keep an open mind, but I didn’t care for this one too much.

RedSox2004 (1326) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - APR 6, 2013
Pours medium brown with a modest head and ok lacing. Aromas of toast, slightly burned butter biscuits and caramel. Flavors are similar, and include brown sugar and a barely perceptible hops bitterness that wasn’t on the nose. Slightly thin, watery mouthfeel, medium carbonation, and a pleasant sweetness in the finish.

Caytinator (966) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 6, 2013
12oz bottle. Small head fades to a collar. Surprisingly dark, almost black. Aroma is sweet and malty, definitely bready. Taste reminds me of a czech dark beer, kind of similar to a german dunkel as well. It must be the czech hops. Simple, pretty toasty, easy to drink. Soft palate, lots of linger. Good.

Sweet, caramel roast aroma with some pepper. Squat, California longneck, great label and cap, clear dark brown beer, big tan head. Fairly acidic, lightly roasty, strong battering. Crisp mouthfeel, medium body. Good. Thanks to PorterPounder for the trade.
