UDBeernut (1910) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2012
On tap at a local pub, poured into a pint glass. A: tan amber color, nice small off white head with good retention that reduces to a lacing cap. S: mild nuttiness. Slight caramel T: sweet on the tounge, slight not of floral hop and nut. A nice example of what a brown should be. M: medium bodied, slightly chalky.

RedSox2004 (1360) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Clear light brown with a two-finger off white head. Aromas of bready malt, nuts and a touch of floral hops. Caramel sweetness highlights the malt-dominant flavor profile that includes cashews and a slight bitterness from the floral. Light to medium bodied, modest carbonation, sticky mouthfeel and a fairly clean finish.

Jrwhitney6 (341) - - FEB 19, 2015
Beer of month club. Pours a clear light brown with quickly disappearing foam head. Nose of some malt and some sweetness - maybe even a drop of cinnamon. Taste is caramel, brown sugar with a malt backbone. On the sweet side, but I like it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SlovakSniper (3418) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2015
Robe qui fait le style. Belle tête vivante qui reste collée. Nez simple de noisettes, de chocolat et de notes grillées. Saveurs de céréales grillées et rôties avec un aspect houblonné terreux. Bouche légère et conçue pour le prêt à boire. Finale modérément amère et moyennement longue. Facile à boire mais vite oubliée.

Keg @El Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. 06-02-2015.
In short: smooth malty ale.
Pours some hazy copper with some off white head. Short head retention, some lacing. Malty, biscuits, some honey aromas, some roasty, caramel ones. Medium body, average to soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is malty, caramel, some toffee and roasty flavours. Smooth and enjoyable.

NikkTwist (1808) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Draft at Khyber Pass. Clear copper pour with a large frothy off-white head. Only sporadic lace. Decent brown ale. Feels juicier than most, though maybe just a bit too sugary for the style. Dark amber fruit. Queen Anne cherries. Chocolate oranges. Golden raisins. Vanilla celery. Light molasses caramels. Faint hints of leather and cigarettes. Succulent finish. Would make for a good session beer.
