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.

Ernest (7284) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 29, 2003
Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, roasted nuts), lightly hoppy (flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, heavily bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic. Poor metallic aftertaste, unbalanced flavor, simple boring aroma, trademark tiny SKA head, ultimately soulless...these guys really need to work on their chops.

in the bottle. looks like a coca-cola. not much a head, what’s there has big bubbles and dies quickly. Aroma of diacyl. finishes with a little bit of a tongue bitterness. Medium carbonation. Overbearing chalky flavor. This style of beer seems to consistently for people who want to drink a beer of style and distinction, but don’t have the tastebuds for it.

Terminus (3545) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 13, 2005
bottle-pours a crimson amber hue with a small white head. aroma of carmel, toffee, and honey roasted cashews. The flavors were terrible-wet carboard and sourness. tastes like the malts and hops were old when this beer was brewed. body was thin and flimsy like most ska beers. probably the worst beer i have had from this brewery. Squidget must have got a good bottle of this (fresh?)

It is brown. Smells a like caramel. No nut flavor or smell to be seen. Way too much carbonation. This beer foams like crazy in your mouth and interferes with any tasting much.

Bottle courtesy of aplusbreaks. Pours brown with a thin white head. Smells nutty and earthy. Tastes of yogurt and tarte. Meh.

Cracked this rude boy open out of a standard 12 oz bottle. Pours out a dark copper brown. Very slight sweet malt aroma on this one. The taste is standard for a nut brown. A lot of malt right away with a little hops to finish it. But really not a great finish with this beer. Once you swallow it the taste is gone. That’s it. It doesn’t linger leaving you wanting more. Very light and not much to it. If you love Browns, you could slam a bunch of these jokers. But that would be all they’d be good for. Slamming. Not a great beer. I’ll be skanking away from this one in the future. IMO son.

Padron4KM (797) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAR 11, 2005
12 oz bottle. Notches on the side of label says it was bottled Jan 02. hmmm. New to AZ, would they be shipping old stock here?.
Pours reddish brown, with a fizzy, short lived tannish head. no lacing.
Funky sour dirty sock aroma, I almost poured down the drain because of it.
flavor was better than the aroma, roasty, nutty, caramel.
Body was kind of thin
tiny bit of hops noted in the short finish. Probably wouldn’t buy again.

Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 19, 2005
Nice aroma of nuts and roasty malts. But boy went downhill from there. Body dark color no head to speak of. Had a watery half sweet maly flavor to it. Roasty aftertaste but nothing special.

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 you’re afraid you’ll 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 isn’t bad but it’s way overcarbonated and thin.
