Caramel color with a small head. The aroma mild with caramel. The flavor is more caramel. A bit thin but a tasty brew.

A rather chocolate like aroma. The color is a quite dark opaque brown. The chocolate carries over to the taste as well, but with not much of an after taste.
A decent beer.

Bottle - Good nut brown flavor, not heavy on the malt which is good. For a brown ale: smooth, light, slightly crisp with hints of toasted notes. Pretty good all things considered on this brown ale.

Draft pour into a pint glass. Pours a clear brown with a beige head of foam. The aroma lends some sweet caramel notes and mild fruits. Taste is moderately sweet. Medium carbonation and low to medium body. Not bad, but mostly not good.

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
