Malty_MacHops (640) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - JUL 4, 2013
First off, I most likely had a bad/old bottle. The label was just "Brown Ale" not the current "Ka-Bar Brown Ale" designator. Thus the slight sourness was likely abnormal. Malty aromas with notes of dark bread, brown sugar, and a touch of smoke. Deep, deep brown (bordering on black) with no head. Some of the malt characteristics, with a slight sourness akin to a Flander’s Brown ale. Medium to medium light in body with a slightly tart finish.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass Aroma- Has a nice roasted nut aroma Appearance- Pours a dark brown with a small white head Taste- Has a nice malty flavor with a good blend of roasted nuts. Palate- A mild to medium bodied beer with heavy carbonation. Overall- A pretty good brown ale that should not be passed up.

Pours dark brown with an off white head. Aroma is is all malts and roast. The taste is mild with some caramel, and a earthy note. It has a mild sweetness, but not overly sweet. There is a hint of booze in the taste. All around easy to drink and very good brown.

stangger (601) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Light roasted malts, mild nuttiness. Caramel, syrupy sweet - overly so for the style. A bit undercarbonated; tastes like it’s slightly underfermented - low on alcohol, high on sugar.

Really nice with nuts and cstamel. A little more hops than usual. Just a tad thin. Modest head cola color on tap at major on bald head island.

Very drinkable brown ale, some nutty flavor, not much aftertaste. This and Lonerider Sweet Josey are almost identical and I will reach for either one. Also reminds me of Newcastle, but better.
