Skyview (5464) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Picked up single 12-oz bottle from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, Minnesota. Pours a clear brown amber colored brew with a fast dissipating off white head that leaves behind a thin off-white ring. Aroma of roasted dark malt, a hint of chocolate, floral hops and a touch of toffee. Taste is where some of the smoked malt character comes through with toasted chocolate malt and floral hops. Finish has a short mild bitterness followed by some smoked chocolate malt aftertaste.

Ein delikates, aber auch nur solides Brown Ale. Viele styletypischen Charakteristiken vorhanden. Röstig/Malzig/A Little Bit Hoppy/leichte Süße etc. Vom Hahn beim 3ten Kieler Craft Beer Day. Probierschluck von Andy.

Aroma of malt and chocolate. Clear dark mahogany brown color, smooth 1" beige head, lots of lace streaks. Taste is malt with oak and chocolate that passes through a fizzy palate to a chalky, somewhat bitter finish. This is one of those brews in which the separate parts don’t make for a satisfying whole.

hotstuff (4802) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 14, 2016
Rated on 7-31-2015 (Bottle) This beer’s appearance is a small tan head that mostly diminished, dark brown body, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is nutty, chocolate and caramel malt. The flavor mimics the aroma. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. A quaffable easy drinking beer with little character. An easily forgettable beer.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized light brown colored bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation semi-opaque brown colored body. The mild aroma was brown malt. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a medium malty aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of roasted malt burnt malt and brown malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

Nice nutty flavor, with a good bitter balance and the slightest smokey undertone. Overall a very good Brown.
