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, Chester Beer & Wine. Dark brown pour. What aroma? Oh dear rank metallic taste. Drain pour. A waste of time importing dross like this. Buster Bloodvessel is much fatter than that as well.

Bottle poured a clear brown hue w/ small quickly and fully diminishing head. Subtle sweet malty aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a light acidic finish. Tastes are chocolate, tannins, bread, and lightly roasted malt. Light to medium bodied, dry texture, soft carbonation.

bottle. Brown with small head. Pretty generic brown ale with light nuttiness. Pleasant flavor, but nothing really distinctive.

Foxbush (1561) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Draft at Coasters in Elizabeth City, NC The ale poured a deep brown color with a small head but lacing down the glass. The aroma was of toasted malts with a hint of sweetness. The texture was smooth with average carbonation,. There was a metalic or iron taste to the ale. The finish had some nutty sweetness.

Maybe it's just because I tweaked my back and this is acting as "medicine", but I think I like this more than any brown I've had in a long time. Great caramel flavor without being too sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear dark brown beer, little pale tan head. Smooth dry palate with fine carbonation. Lactose dry malt, little cream. Slightly tangy fruits and a trace of coffee and indeed some nuts! Smooth dry finish. Not bad.

Medium to dark brown pour with a 1 finger, creamy, off white head that has decent retention and leaves decent lacing. Nutty, herbal, pine and light citrus aroma. Flavor is oily nutty sweetness up front, earthy wood, cereal, dark caramel, spice and hints of pine and herbal hops and roast to the finish. Medium body, with a sticky, but slick feel and light carbonation. Not bad, but it’s a little boozy (especially for 5.15%ABV and bland other than a vague nuttiness, I really had to search for other tasting notes. Still, I could knock back a couple without complaining.
