Dave brought this back for me. Sweet aroma. Pours dark brown with a tan head that was light but nice. Taste was sweet malt. Mouth feel was good. Aftertaste was a bit bitter but not bad. It was an OK beer.

From a can from the brewery. Pours clear medium brown with a fizzy, bubbly off white head and decent lacing. Tastes like nutty, malty grains, lightly roasted, slightly sweet with a dry feel. Smells like sweet and musky malt.

Can from brewery. Pours clear light brown/ruby with creamy off-white head. Aroma is faint with notes of toasted and caramel malts, light fig, and some floral notes. Flavor is dry malts forward, faint woody bitterness, and faint raisin esters; dry, bitter finish. Light/medium body and medium carbonation.

Light caramel/toffee and toast aroma; some apple-ish fruit. Caramel and toasted malt flavor--finishing sweet, and kind of fruity.

beerbill (3272) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUL 13, 2013
12 oz. can purchased at the brewery. Pours a slightly hazed deep amber that allows light to pass through with a thin off-white head that barely makes it to the second sip and leaves scant lace. Mild aroma of crystal malt and not much else. The flavor is crystal malt with perhaps a touch of caramel followed by very mild hops bitterness. Medium bodied. Very subdued.

For a brown, this is lacking the smooth body and subtle sweetness. A bit of caramel and some nuttiness, but mostly cardboard.

Blairgus (2416) - California, USA - JUN 17, 2013
17 June 2013, can. Dark ruby/brown, clear, some steady bubbles. Nose is very cerealy, slightly metallic. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Nutty, cereal malt, toasted bread, perhaps a bit metallic. Ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

madvike (2583) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Can - Murky brown pour with a thin fine-bubbled tan head. Nose is bready and dry, with a gentle yeastiness. Smooth, with a bit of toffee. Taste is a bit flatter, with mineral and dry bread a bit of metal, and a lightly nutty finish. Not much in the way of hopping. Biting carbonation and a bit of a watery body. Not bad, and a pretty good change of pace as I don’t drink a ton of brown ales.

Bottle. Brown, muddy body. Beirge head, diminishing. Sweet, malt aroma of toasted grain, molasses, bread. Note of resin. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery turning sticky texture, lively carbonation. Malts taste a lot like a New Castle, only richer. Some husky grain.
