COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

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 (1367) - 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.

alobar (2613) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2011
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.

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.

nearbeer (3424) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 28, 2011
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.
