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.

Poured two fingers of head on an almost clear brown colored body.
The aroma is nice roasted malt with a touch of pine.
The taste has a good balance of roasted malt, milk cream and a moderate bitter finish.
The texture is soft and creamy with moderate carbonation.
A solid brown ale.

This one poured a murly lighter brown color with a beige head. Aroma was toasted malt, light nuts and caramel. Flavor was similar, a fairly flavorful brown, but nothing crazy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce can from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. Pour was medium brown and it sported a big beige head that was just short of gushing. My wife was cooking sausage that interfered with me getting a good sense of the aroma. Flavors of chocolate and nuts were nice. Some fruit. The chocolate was kind of like brownies. Some tart citrus came late with the grapefruit like bitterness. The finish was more chocolate and even later some tobacco appeared. This was tilted toward the hoppier side for a brown. Interesting and fairly flavorful. It would make a good gateway into craft beer.
