   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Elwood (3027) - 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 itís prime, but itís 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.

Jimthechap (1570) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 19, 2011
Deep russett coppery brown with caramel and crystal malt sweetness prevalent on the nose. Thereís something amiss with the nose though. Itís not vegetal or appley, but a little bit earthy. Maybe it didnít travel particularly well - this is 8,000miles from home after all. I donít know, itís just a bit... meh. Sweet and nutty as a brown ale ought to be, a bit bready. No major flavour faults, but not a lot else to comment on. Pleasant enough but not especially memorable. A touch astringent an smoky on the finish.

wlajwl (3771) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 17, 2011
I had this several years ago and it was average in every way. A little bit of malt and not too sweet but nothing really flavorful. Not really bad but much better brown ales out there, although I am surprised to hear it isnít made anymore.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 14/20
BlackWarrior (203) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - MAY 11, 2011
Pours reddish brown with a foamy off-white head that lingers briefly. Aroma of raisins, malt, wheat bread, and faint herbs. Palate is a little thin, with average carbonation and short finish. The sweetness of molasses and maybe caramel defines most of the taste, but it tapers off quickly with a hint of hops in the finish. A good session ale.

brokensail (10645) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 10, 2011
A: The beer pours a dark amber color with a finger of off-white head sitting on top. S: Intensely sweet on the nose with a big time dark fruit character, possibly prunes and raisins. Some toffee, caramel, and brown sugar gives additional sweetness as does the hint of chocolate. T: Sweet toffee and brown sugar are present all the way through. Some mild dark fruit notes and perhaps a hint of nuttiness and toasted bread. M: Light to medium in body with a medium carbonation. O: A little too sweet and not much else going on.

beerledgend (1197) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 5, 2011
Dark red/brown in colour with firm off white head. Caramel aroma. Subitly sweetness of caramel in the flavour. Slight hopmouthfeel.Wicked!!!

adavis234 (286) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - MAY 4, 2011
Bottle. Pours an amber brown with thin white head and litle carbonation. Aroma is a bit of caramel malts with notes of nuts and apple and an overall sweetness. Some caramel malts up front and then a sweet hoppy finish, but none of the flavor lingers long. Decent but could be a lot more with better execution.

BrewBoxer (1886) - New York, New York, USA - APR 4, 2011
Bottle. Pours a ruby red brown color. Smells of fruit, apples and berries. More like an irish red or amber ale them a brown. Not as malty. Nixe session beer, but nothing memorable

greig (253) - Hamilton, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 18, 2011
Decent, tasty ale. Slightly caramelly, some dry roasted nuts, and a nice bready note. A good session ale, though a little strong at 5.3%

FROTHINGSLOSH (4843) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel-brown color with a medium sized foamy tan head that lingered and produced some lacing. The aroma was sour, tangy and lightly fruity with a faint caramel note. The flavor was toasted caramel, tangy and vague fruits and a bit of nut. The finish was long with caramel, nut and citrus. Medium body and a bit smooth. Decent.
