COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional English-style brown ale, but with more body. Its deep brown color comes from a combination of Chocolate and Black malts. Tall, dark and smooth – the perfect cure for the domestic beer blahs. 5.6% abv

Good dark brown color. The fun ends there. Decent chocolate caramel smell. Weak thin watery malt flavor. This beer is unimpressive. I could knock them back all night because of the lack of mouthfeel and the all around wateriness but I could do the same with Bud Light.

Beerdedone (2494) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2006
Sampled at world beer festival. Pours brown with a small light beige head. Aroma of slight roastedness, nuts, and citrus. Flavor is malty, sweet, nutty, slight roast, a little watered down, but still good.

Pours a dark brown color with a malty flavor. The brown is a decent example and is something id like to drink again

these guys are funny! good company makes even mediocre beers seem better. the brown was a little lacking (this seems to be a pattern among NC brewed brown ales). malty tasting and flavor. not too hoppy. sampled at brewgrass 04 on draught.

Sampled at Charlotte Oktoberfest ’04. Medium brown body, slightly off-white head. Flavor was roasty with medium hops in the finish. An average brown.
