Clear brown color with medium offwhite head. Aroma a bit earthy hops and nut, sweet malt. Flavor reflects this. A bit watery, some slight nut undertone and definite earthy hop finish. Overall, decent enough.

DocLock (8593) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2007
Bottle from Capone’s. Dark brown pour with 1-finger off-white head. Aroma is caramel malt, walnut, almond, brown sugar, toffee. Tastes scotch malty, with toffee, brown sugar, and a becy of nut meats. Very fresh tasting, and stays rather dry throughout, with the nutty flavors staying prominent throughout.

Radek Kliber (6691) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 16, 2007
Bottle 355 ml
Appearance :Pours clear ruby brown with thick beige cap.3+ top.
Nose :Fresh scent of aromatic alpha hops mixed with blend of brown malts. Chocolate in character.
Flavour/Palate : Slightly dry up front with bitter west coast hops. Brown malts seemed subdued by them. With time smoother cream chocolate shown. Missing typical to this style nutty flavors . Decent.

kramer (5395) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear light brown body under a foamy two finger beige head that left some intricate lacing. The nose is not very Brown Ale like, it almost has a Gueuze like quality. Sugary, musty, with some fruity malt. The taste is very earthy with dry husky malt and maybe a slight hint of infection. Minimal nutty flavor and a very light hoppiness. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with foaming active fizzy carbonation. Overall, this was just too thin and really had some odd flavors and aromas going on. Another organic loser.

Red-brown with big, foamy tan head / Minimal, faint malt nose / Medium, weak body, with no finish / Simple, thin but pleasant flavors of roast malt and nuts / Pedestrian.

Imaena (2086) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - OCT 7, 2007
Draft in Bar Harbor: Good but over priced. Not sure if it truly makes my top lists of brown ales. it has nice interpaly with the flavourings but it just does not finsih as well as i would have liked.

puboflyons (2597) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 28, 2007
From a bottle at a beer tasting in Concord, New Hampshire. Pours a nice brown color with a reasonable tan head. Malts and fruits in the aroma. Medium mouth feel. Very enjoyable malty and nutty flavor. Maybe a hint of choclate too? A quality brew and one that I would have again.

BREWMUSKCLES (2398) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 2, 2007
aroma is sweet and malty. this is a brown so i give a pass. this beer looks good in the glass. nice classic brown with red hues. low carbonation it is still fairly sudsy. the beer goes down good with a touch of bitterness and sudsyness. the flavors are tangy with a malty hit. there is a touch of sweetness that is of caramel and toffee nut (can’t discern the nut). heck a guys ego gotta give an extra point for smell and looks. goes down pretty smooth. damn it here i go -YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MIGHT MAKE A GOOD SESSION BEER.
