On tap at Sweetwater. Pours brown with reddish hues. Very mild aroma. Taste is cookie, caramel, dark breads. Medium bodied with high carbonation.

Not much of an aroma, a hint of caramel maybe. Has a nice amber brown color. Tastes sweet, malty, with a small hop finish. It is a good session beer.

Great copper color, thick head that dissipates at an average rate. The aroma is quite pleasing, deep and dark. Has a full palate, rich and opulent. Unfortunately, this beer finishes rather poorly, ending strongly bitter for too long. Still a very nice little brown ale though.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2005
Brown. Light tan head. Roasty, malty, nutty- smells good. Same flavor, good session brew, cereal aftertaste. Medium/light body. Nice brown beer.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - AUG 24, 2005
Bottle. Brown pour. Light sweet malty and nutty aroma, not big though. Some nutty flavors, but nothing real assertive. A little light and thin for me, but I can see it being a good session beer for the masses.

A solid brown ale that is a great alternative to its more expenssive counterparts.

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 7, 2005
A nice brown ale, kind of lacking a lot of flavor or punch. Manily a mild brown ale but a good american brown ale

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 18, 2005
Pours with an amber-brown body topped by a thin head with little lacing. It’s slightly sweet with a slight roastiness, a little nuttiness and a nice bitter hoppy finish. Slighlty dry, smooth and medium bodied.

chronictonic (473) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2005
on tap - bier garden asheville nc - nearly odorless - just a slight whiff of a milky sweetness. flavor is bland and non-descript - even for a brown ale. slightly sour finish. below average for a brown ale.

This was decent. Solid brown color, lacy white head. thin on the palate, but hints of nutty carmel and vanilla ending the heavy nutty flavas
