Transferred from old tasting notebook: Poured from bottle into standard pub pint. Great hoppy aromas, way more than Newcastle. Nice malty, caramelly, nutty, slightly roasty flavors. Light-medium body and fruity ale yeast esters, but heightened hops gives a drier than expected finish. Good stuff.

ContemplateBeer (1493) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 24, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2011 Aroma of caramel/ molasses/ light resin hops. Appearance is red/ brown with bone head. Flavor was mostly sweet and slightly toasty malts with slight hop finish. Palate is bubbly. Nothing really excited; still it is very drinkable and a good everyday sorta beer.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - OCT 10, 2011
12oz bottle. Rating #823. Clear dark reddish/brown color with a light tan head. Malty and a little sweet and a bit of toastiness. Flavor is a bit off, picking up some butter, I think the bottle might be a little old, too bad. (1933)

Bottle- Pours an amber color with a tan head that fades slowly with good lacing. Aroma is sweet and a bit nutty. There is some caramel and fresh grain in the background. Initial sweetness of caramel and some dark fruit. A fairly clen finish with a lingering sweetness. Medium body, smooth and creamy. Nice balance but a bit too sweet. Smooth and goes down easy. Hard to drink more than one due to the sweetness.

It took a while to get into the brown ales but it finally ‘grew’ on me and this is a nice beer to have on those fall days beside a roaring fire. It’s reddish, copper color sports an off-white foamy head which settles down much more quickly than I would like. It has a nice caramel aroma with a creamy, smooth body with a faint grainy finish. I enjoyed it for a couple of beers but anything more than that and the flavor really begins to decline.

smaynard6000 (602) - Apopka, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Pours a dark brown color with a thick white head. Aroma is a bit earthy and a bit of caramel, too. A bit on the fizzy side with some sweet flavor. Average.

This one didn’t do it for me, lifeless in the glass, nutty and caramel notes in taste and aroma.

Elwood (3009) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2011
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a very light brown with a small, foamy off-white head. The nose has some stale hop notes, a slight vegetal note, some nuttiness, and a bit of caramel. The flavor is a little English in style with a bit of butter and caramel. There is a light undercurrent of fruitiness and stale, papery hops. This one may be a bit past it’s prime, but it’s still not terrible. Medium bodied with average carbonation leading to a medium, lightly fruity finish. I actually think this brew comes across better than the ratings belie.
