chinchill (1776) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 7, 2013
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.

kdm1984 (646) - Missouri, USA - FEB 6, 2013
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.

Lightly sweet brown with caramel and chocolate, yet still not "dessert-y". Smooth and easy-drinking.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Pleasant, sessionable, smooth and easy-drinking brown ale. Light toast, subtle sweetness (brown sugar, caramel, honey, vanilla), faint spiciness (pepper, possibly a hint of clove) and a little nuttiness. Finishes clean.

2013 Spring Seasonal. New logo on the bottle. Very thick and filling. Great rich taste with only a hint of hops.

BroSpud (1680) - , Massachusetts, USA - JAN 26, 2013
12oz weird shape bottle. Pours medium amber with a white head. Nothing very distinctive here just a simple easy drinking brown ale. It is a very drinkable session beer though nothing that great really.

Chudwick (2082) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JAN 26, 2013
12oz bottle - pours clear amber with weathered ivory head and great lacing. Nose is roasted malts and caramel. Flavor adds chocolate, herbal hops and light nuttiness. light sweetness with a little more bitterness. watery. subtle malt backbone. Light for the style.

maxwelldeux (3542) - Everett, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours a somewhat dark clear brown color with a smallish white head. Nose is a little nutty and malty. Taste has a little bit of caramel in there with a nice balance. Decent.

very neutral taste, not much distinctive about this... perhaps slightly Smokey and slightly bitter...that’s it

A beer that sort of calls out for a little more malt and alcohol. Nice top roast notes and sweet finish. More of a session beer than anything. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
