COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Easy drinking - get one and watch it disappear! Mellow yet robust, dark in color, but tastes light. A study in contradictions like the brewpub!

Tankerkev (4) - USA - JUL 29, 2011 does not count
On tap at the brewpub. Arrived with no head. Decent flavor, paired well with a brat sandwich. Very drinkable, nice taste, just nothing special. Only medium body, which I want more from a brown ale.

nickd717 (3497) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 8, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Medium nut brown color with a one-finger whitish head that has average retention. Nutty and malty aroma with a hint of chocolate. Rather standard for the style. The flavor is also pretty standard: caramel, nuts, light toast, brown sugar, and milk chocolate. On the mouthfeel, itís not terrible, but could use a little more heft to it. Medium-light bodied. A slightly above average brown ale overall. Decent enough.

Capa (2029) - Manama, BAHRAIN - AUG 30, 2010
Caramel malt, lightly toasted, light sweetness and fairly light body on this brown. A sure winner if youíre looking for a session beer. Underrated.

jsquire (3468) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2010
On tap at the pub. Dark amber color with a foamy beige head. Faint roast grain hints in the otherwise very clean nose. Brown sugar sweetness, burnt toast and wet grain flavors. The finish had an ashy astringency. Okay brown ale.

jredmond (5341) - Manhattan, New York, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Draft at the Outer Banks Brewing Station in Kill Devil Hills, NC. Pours a dark brown body with thin white head. Aroma is slight burnt malts. Mouthfeel is smooth with notes of bitter chocolate malts and slight hop flavor.

strongpieman (1499) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JUL 30, 2010
A little too light / watery for me to be a top notch brown. Red / Brown color, clear & translucent with minimal head. Very mild taste. Light body, soft carbonation.
