Draft poured into a shaker. Drank as "John Brown’s Ale" at John Brown’s Pub. Pours a clear nut brown with about a finger of off-white head. Aroma of pine and roasty malt. Taste is about the same. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, very good. I would gladly drink again.

A clear, tea-brown pour with a small off-white head. The bready, malt aroma has a slightly roasted quality. The light to medium body is a little sticky with average carbonation. It has a roasted taste with a mildly bitter, dry finish.

Growler filled at Whole Foods. Opened the growler 10 minutes after having it filled, and this thing somehow tastes oxidized (wet cardboard). I have had two kegged beers recently that taste of oxidation... how is this possible. Oxidation aside, this just isn’t a very good or interesting beer. Again, schlafly has underwhelmed me.

phaleslu (6502) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2010
Draft at Hair of the Dog, called "Fudd" there but is this beer repurposed for that bar specifically. Pours a cloudy chestnut brown with a small beige head. Notes of toasted malts, nuts, chocolate, and brown sugar. Medium-bodied, with a nutty mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Simple, straightforward, nice brown.

A little tired from a long day I did not get a chance to spend as much time as I wanted here. I finally chose a pint of the American Brown which was on cask at the time for $4.25. It turned out to be a good choice. Compared to the disgrace that was Morgan Street the local taps at Schlafly were a vast improvement. If I lived in the area I would be here often.

Aroma / Appearance - The gradiated mahogany body had a rosy tinge at the bottom where it lightened up. The oatmeal colored head was a nice contrast. Wood shavings, peat moss, and mellow hops brought to mind freshly seeded grass after a heavy thunderstorm.

Flavor / Palate - Muddy oak limbs mixed with light chocolate reminded me of an Oreo shake that was heavy on the cookies. Fluid and filling the mouthfeel did not feel delicate. Putting this in a cask seems to have brought out some better characteristics. I wish I’d had time to more properly delve into the offerings but in a limited time frame there is only so much to do. I will definitely have to return here on my next visit to Saint Louis.

Growler. Pours deep cola brown with a thin head. Aroma is nutty and roasted, some fresh cut grass and piney notes as well. Flavor is warm, toasted chocolate, coffee, and wood notes, followed by grassy hops and piney resin. Smooth, easy to drink, and tasty.
