Elwood (3027) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2013
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.

BucannonXC5 (802) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 25, 2013
Type: 22-oz. bomber Glass: Karl Strauss pint glass From: Del Mission Liquor in Hillcrest (San Diego), Calif. Price: 2-for-$5 Purchased: April 25, 2013 Consumed: April 25, 2013 Misc.: N/A Poured a mahogany brown color with two fingers of khaki tan head. Decent amount of sporadic and uneven layered lacing on the sides. Good retention all the way down. Smelled roasted caramel notes first. Also nuts, toast, toffee and faint bitter chocolate notes. Had me wanting to come back for more. Not as much flavor in the taste like the nose. Roasty caramel, toffee, chocolate milk and nuts with bitterness hanging on the tongue after. Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Slightly bitter, but still smooth finish. This beer had its moments, but it was missing something. A bit more flavor I would have rated it higher than a 3.5 (which may have a bit generous).

Livendadream (104) - New Mexico, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle pours reddish brown color with fluffy creamy tan head Nice lacing on glass head that hangs around for awhile. Smells earthy with subtle baking chocolate and coffee aroma lingering around. As it warms up toffee smell is present. Tastes sweet and smooth. Medium body that coats the tongue. Good carbonation. Small hop flavor at the end. Decent session beer that is easy drinking. Definitely gets better as it warms up.

Hazy brown pour with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee and dark fruit. The flavor is similar. I get a bit of chalky chocolate notes, as well as some grass, grapes and toasted malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

foyle (224) - Wyoming, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance: pours a healthy 2” beige sudsy head that recedes slowly. Good amount of lacing. Color is mostly clear light brown with moderate carbonation. Looks much like a glass of Coca Cola. Aroma: fairly mild aroma. There is fresh water and bread dough with some chocolate malt. Mouthfeel: light to medium bodied, somewhat dry finish. Flavor: medium roasted malts are the dominant flavor with chocolate, coffee, and toffee notes being evident. There is a mild, but noticeable, hop bitterness in the finish.

trujahwarrior (506) - Monroe, Washington, USA - AUG 9, 2013
12oz stubby bottle pours a semi hazy mahogany color with a medium khaki head that leaves good lacing. Smells of caramel and nuts and light barley malts. Tastes of the same things that are in the smell with a touch of chocolate. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with decent carbonation. Overall its pretty ho hum. Just another run of the mill brown ale. I like last years nut brown better.
