On tap at Royersford location. Pours a mostly translucent deep amber/brownish with a medium creamy light tan head that laced. Aroma of toasted malt, toffee, honey roasted malts, caramel and lightly floral. Flavor of toasted malt, roasted nuts, pine, moderate hop bitterness, caramel and light chocolate.

eaglefan538 (2911) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Poured a dark brown color with some amber tones. The head was nice and the lacing very good. The aroma was more hoppy than anything. The flavor was like a balanced pale ale (with more color that didn’t turn into deeper flavor for me) with a sweet malty base. Pine and floral flavors were most pronounced and this was a less than impressive brown ale (flavor rated lowest due to a complete mismatch to the style).

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 15, 2005
Mild sweet toasted malts with herbal and light citrus hops in the aroma. Clear brown body with low white head that recedes to ring. Floral and grapefruit hops are strong in the flavour with a lightly toasty malt profile and mild bitterness. Medium light body with fair carbonation. Yet another one from this brewery that comes across as an amber ale. Sampled on tap at the brewpub with beerbuzzmontreal, egajdzis, Eyedrinkale, MartinT, Rastacouere and Yowie.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2005
Diminishing off-white head covering a orange-red hazy hue. Grass tasting hops take a lot of room in this otherwise toasty, cocoa induced malty ale. Mineral on the tongue, with biting carbonation and a light-medium bodied. It does grow mild alcohol vapors that combine with the considerable roastiness and assertive flowery hopping to finish a bit astringent, but otherwise remain a clean and straightforward example.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2005
Pours a reddish amber color with a thin offwhite head. Aroma of nuts and citrusy hops. The flavor is the same : citrusy hops and nuts. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and soft carbonation.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 13, 2005
The Lure:
Wooden hop resins roam atop the dryish malts. For a brown ale, this isn’t nearly sweet enough, and roasted enough to please.

The Festivities:
Hoppier than their Challenger IPA, believe it or not, citrus hops teem amongst the disgruntled roastiness. This is a pint made for quaffing while offering flavors that are slightly different to what people are used to. They shouldn’t call this a brown ale though.

Transcendence:
Another day at the office.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2008 Draught @ Brewery: Smells hoppy, piney, and spicy with hints of cream and choclate. Big white head. Copper in color. Clear. No lacing. Flavors of orange, malt, and lots of hops. Also chocolate and vanilla notes. VERY lively carbonation. Medium bodied, but barely. Very well balanced. A different pale ale, but good.

rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2005
Tap. This is pretty much the Phoenix Pale Ale with added malts. I enjoy the pale ale greatly, and this is more like the balanced version of it. It’s very drinkable, and tasty as well. It pours a golden brown color with hints of ruby. The aroma is full of hops and spice; the malts aren’t really detectable until the taste. Very palatable and drinkable.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 14, 2005
This is a great american brown ale. lots of chocolate malts give a nice light chocolate aroma with lots of nutty hints. Flavor is toasted and crystal malts, and hoppy all around. Nice clean and smooth finish.
