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.

TheAlum (6193) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2012
16 oz bottle from the brewery (Glendale, WI). Surprised I’ve never had this, it sounds right up my alley. Pours a rich deep copper brown, light haze, healthy fiery glow on the edges. A frothy tannish head sits atop and settles to a firm layer, ok lacing overall. Like the color. Aromas are mellow sweetness, touches of earthy brown malts, caramel, and biscuits. A gentle waft of toast, earthy dry hops. A faint spice, biscuits, and mellow sweetness mix with dry toast, biscuits. Simple yet inviting. Initial is medium bodied offering a subtle thickness up front. Brown malts, touches of toffee, toast, and biscuits. Mellow dry florals, more earthy brown malts with kisses of faint cocoa, dry toast. Some mellow sticky toffee. Really nice vibe on this sessioner, offering toast, earth, and that lingering sweetness into the back. Gentle spice, faint dryness, but that touch of sweetness and thickness sticks, mellow cocoa elements, making the beer a bit memorable. A sweeter brown, yet inviting. Simple but enjoyed.

about the most watery brown ale ive ever had. aroma was worrying ,as it had a diacetyl smell to it. but the flavor was thin and and bland. id like to dry it fresh, as i think this had been sitting around for a while too.

Bottle. Clear reddish amber pour with a smaller white head. Aroma is a funky toffee. Lighter palate with some carbonation. Taste is a slightly watery caramel and toffee. OK, about what I was expecting.

loafgoat (53) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Clear brown color with nice white head that fades rather quickly. Taste is somewhat lacking for the style with an almost sourish ending.

Shag (2684) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 19, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2011 Aroma is caramel, toffee, and nutmeg. Appearance is a murky brown. The flavor is malty but you know what? This is like a Newcastle clone but I like Newcastle.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 9, 2011
Bottle. My bottle reads "Sprecher Pub Brown Ale." Pours a medium brown with a small fizzy off white head. Aroma and flavor are fairly sweet, not very nutty, some caramel, some fruity esters. Light palate. Fairly tasty and easy drinking -- i.e., a pub ale.

Pours a chestnut brown color with an aroma of nuts, hops, and a faint hint of fig. Some caramel, toasted malt and nuts in the flavor. Kind of bland and empty. One of the lesser quality beers from this brewer.
