Bottle. Dirty brown mid water with almost no head. Some hint of caramel and light yeast. Not a bad beer. Nice change of pace for spring.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Minimal head on a medium brown colored body.
The aroma is nice with chocolate, flora notes and nuts.
The taste is sweet overall with roasted and chocolate malt dominating.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.
An enjoyable brown ale.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Moriartys. Clear copper pour with a tight off-white head. Medium malt flavors. Cola. Tangerine peels. Cinnamon. Not really that complicated. Thankfully not too sweet. Easy drinking but not exceptional.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. A light brown color with a small off white head. The nose has light nut, malt, and a touch of caramel. The flavor follows suit with a light, easy drinking body. Nothing spectacular, but certainly sessionable.

First, it says Brown ale, not spring ale. Was nice and a little nutty like a brown ale should. NIce aftertatse and very hopy.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from NH brewery dated 13 Dec. 2012 (bottled on) served in a snifter. Poured a clear reddish brown with a decent looking but short-lived tan head. Both spicy hops and malt evident in the attractive but weak nose, with a trace of fruitiness and notes of toasted grain, caramel and baked bread.
T - a good amount of toasted malt flavor, with spicy hops in the background that are probably responsible for the sensation of black pepper. Subtle flavors of roasted nuts and smoke. Faint hint of coffee in the semi-dry finish.
Lively feel, suggesting that there’s more carbonation in this than it appears. The body is medium, leaning towards thin.
O - a slightly hoppy and lively brown ale.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice light brown appearance with finger-length head that sticks around for a bit and leaves nice thick rings of lacing. Aroma is cereal-y, toasty, and a little nutty with a hint of earth and metal. Taste was a letdown after the nice appearance and pretty good aroma - very little flavor at all. I understand brown ales are one of the more subdued styles, but this is quite weak even for the style. There should be more notes of the nuttiness and toast suggested by the aroma, but there is just some vaguely bready malts on the tongue, and little else. Drinkable enough, but doubt I will get this again with many other tastier browns out there.
