3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: A pour the color of weak coffee, topped with a creamy khaki head. Nutty, earthy, coffee, and roasted malt aromas… a fairly strong nose. Coffee up front, slightly sweet, nutty and earthy in the tail. A balance of roast and bittersweet. Moderate body, good finish. I don’t see why the ratings are so low… this is better than a lot of the brown ales out there.

"Nice brown ale. The nuttiness and balance between sweet chocolatey roasted malt and bittering hops is pretty nice, and makes this brown slightly more robust than most."

Really unimpressed y this brown, body was far too light for my taste, only slight malt flavors help darken and give some hint of roast or chocolate.

12 ounce can thanks to Lectvay. Nice brown with solid chocolate like flavor followed by a light overall body. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from Brewforia. Pours dark copper with a beige head. Aroma is chocolate and nuts. Med body or so. Flavor is chocolate, earthy, almost like coffee in effect. Nuts are probably coming over like coffee for me. The malt is rather roasty. Not usually a brown ale fan, but there’s enough bitter in the finish to make it ok.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Kind of bland brown ale, watery mouthfeel. Looks good, with nice creamy beige head on brown body. taste is sweet, but short, nothing lasts to remember it by. Easy to drink, but so is water.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can:   Deep caramel, thin to moderate foamy sandy head, decent lacing.   Soft roasty nose, a little biscuit, bready.   Smooth pale roastiness up front.   A little lactose like.   Pale biscuit and breadiness.
Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Lingering breadiness and sweet biscuit on the finish.   Not a big Brown Ale, but its smooth, tasty, and better than expected!   Even has a froo-froo coffee aspect at times.

Pretty typical brown ale - nothing really special. Carbonation an color were both pretty solid.
