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.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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