Brewed in the northern style of an English ale. This light brown ale has a nice caramel and toasted malt flavor, combined with a fresh hoppy aroma that is slightly fruity. This is nicely complimented by a subtle bitterness that rounds out the palate.

Deep amber/brown pour with off white head. Aroma is light chocolate a bit of toasted malt. Sweet caramel and light chocolate. A bit thin and fizzy, but drinkable.

Watery brown ale, probably would be an okay session but ultimately not worth your time.

12 oz. Dark brown with a lasting meringue of foam. Nose of graham crackers, marshmallow, ash and earthy, green herbs. Taste is sweet cherry, ground corn, and a barely balancing finish of earthy spice and toasted nut shell. Light-medium body is watery, and a little fizzy. Very interesting take on the style, but just a bit too fruity sweet even with a sour-acidic and nearly mouth-puckering finish.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Aroma and flavor is fruit/berries and mild nutty notes. Decent enough brown ale.

On tap @ Sprecher. Nice mid-brown dark appearance with a decent head and later lace. Aroma was of lightly sweet malt and light hops. Taste was also of malts with a slight burnt hue and a nice smooth lightly hopped finish. Good mouthfeel. Overall, a nice brown ale that I will likely re-visit sometime in the future.

Pours orange/brown with off white head, aroma is a bit of roasted malt with a big nutty component. Taste up front is a bit of hops leading into a nutty middle and finishing pretty sweet. Not bad flavors, but the tastes were really weak.

Pours dark amber to copper with a 2 finger creamy eggshell head that has great retention. Aroma is toasted grain, toasted nuts, light citrus and herbal hops, toffee, and light woody notes. Flavor is sweet malt, cereal grain a little sweet corn, sweet, toasted nuts, buttery toffee, citrus and herbal hop notes. Palate is light bodied off dry throughout and with a full, but not toos sharp carbonation. Not too bad overall, kid of normal, all around solid, but not overly interesting Brown Ale.
