COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Brown Ale has a touch of nuttiness provided by our good friends Mr. and Mrs. Victory and Munich Malt. The addition of Northern Brewer, Cascade, and Willamette hops smooth this beer out to create an incredibly drinkable Brown Ale.

Bottle... NTB Ernesto Festo í06... Clear, deep copper ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Chocolatey, malty nose and flavor with hints of diacetyl. The aroma is a touch floral as well. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Sweet, chocolatey finish.

I was swigging this one directly from the bottle while on vacation. It had a some slightly brwon ale characteristics with a maltier than average aspect. A little roast was thrown in also. You could easily drink a lot of this one.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Murky brown with a tan head and big, spotty lacing. Nutty and slightly bitter with some roast. Flavors are much the same as the nose, but more bitter. Cloying finish with a heavy mouthfeel.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 24, 2006
Draught at Tylerís in Durham, NC. Ruddy brown color with thin tan head that laced the glass. Malty brown sugar aroma with a touch of sprucy hops. Dry and earthy with subdued chocolate flavor and a mild roasty finish.

Crash (531) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2006
Poured dark brown with a little lacing. Aroma was malty towards bread. Initial flavor was acidic with a stale coffee finish.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 11, 2006
Pours dark coffe brown with shallow creamy froth. Smells of fresh dark malted coffee. Medium nectar weight with ample residual effers. Flavors of leather are forward with coffee, coaco, charcoal, with a slight nuttiness. Dry with a nice mellow bitterness on the finish. Well ballanced.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2006
Very disappointing. Iíve sampled a few good things from SKA but this was awful. Foul aroma of gutters after a rain with a taste to match. Just a bad beer.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Whoa, the aroma is smack-you-in-the-face bad. lol. like a sewer hole in NYC where the steam rises up and you try to stay away from it cause youíre afraid youíll smell all day if you walk over top of it... that kind of bad. The appearance is thin and watery with some light brown/amber colors. The flavors arent too bad though. Some maple syrup and nutty flavors, along with some toffee and chocolate undertones. Lots of carmel, decent malts. Mouthfeel isnít bad but itís way overcarbonated and thin.

Shag (2622) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 29, 2006
WTF is with the aroma on this. It smells like I took Rover for a walk to do his business and I bent over to smell the results. Worst aroma ever! A reddish brown appearance with a light head. The flavor contains some caramel and a hint of dark chocolate. Watery thin palate. Despite the cool gangster graffiti looking label, this beer is worthless.

Cornfield (5506) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2006
Nice chestnut body and fizzy tan head, but the aroma promises more than is delivered in the taste. Chocolate, sweet malt, smoked almonds... but a fairly bland flavor of dull malts, light brown sugar, and a faint nutty bitterness in the finish.
