3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served from bottle into a shaker. Pours a dark brown with a minimal off-white head. Maintained good lacing thoughout. The aroma was comprised of roasted malt and nutty notes. The flavor followed the nose with light roasted malt and nutty characters. It was light on the palate with low carbonation. Overall this was not a bad brew. However, the flavors of this one were quite muted for some odd reason, as it warmed up they came out a little more but were still not pronounced. Still a nice brown ale that is worth trying.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle This is the first of my 12 beers per month as a gift from AOPD.
The ale poured a clear reddish brown color with a light tan head and lacing. Nutty and bready malts greet you. The taste is more complex with some chocolate and toasted malts. The ale has a light body and average carbonation. A nice brown ale with a clean dry finish to the last swallow.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This had a huge, unmanageable foamy head that took forever to shrink. Deep copper color with a light grainy nose. Very carbonated on the tongue. Taste of wet grains, old toast and a bit of a tartness that I found off putting. Not much to recommend this beer.

Bottled. Dark brown mahogany pour. Malts and bit of caramel bread. Unspectacular in general.

RJ Rockers Brown Eyed Squirrel nut brown ale has a thick, beige head, a murky, standard brown appearance, a plethora of tan yeast chunks swirling about, and some lacing left behind. The aroma is of brown bread crust, nut shell, and sweetness, but a big inhalation is required to pick up any scent. Taste is of the same elements, with low-level bitterness and a touch of sourness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and RJ Rockers Brown Eyed Squirrel finishes fairly crisp and quite easy drinking. RJT

Beer of month club offering. Pours a light brown without much of a head. Muted nose - some malt. Taste is of malt, with some nutty sweetness. A decent brown ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a bottle, A brown body with a tan head that had nice retention. Initial aroma had a strong malt presence. Which seemed to me to be of sweet toasted bread and a blend of nuts. Cereal notes were present too. While the flavor was enjoyable it was mostly a one note malt flavor. A nice mouth feel and a nice smooth finish.

A medium brown body with a brown head, Decent retention and no lace. Kind of watery body. Aroma had good caramel malt notes and a nice nutty quality. Flavor was very mild, but had a nice nutty flavor and the caramel malts were nice. Had a slight roasted note that seemed bitter at times,/ Finish was light and smooth. A little watery.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Over carbonated in the bottle. Nice color and creamy white head. Flavors are very subtle but lacks the spiciness typical in English ales. Kind of woody aroma. Although some spicy notes are subtle.
