Not really a brown, pours and drinks lighter than that. Not a bitter but has some aspects of that style. "Pub Ale" is a great description, actually. I could definitely down several of these in an evening at a pub.

On tap at the University Library Cafe. Clear amber appearance with a beige head. Mild aroma of toasted malts and husky grains. Similar flavor, mild and fairly clean, but a bit bland. Light hop bitterness and light sweetness with a light body, a crisp feel and a grainy finish.

A murky brown color with a beige head. The aroma contains toffee, vanilla, and some herbal notes. The flavor is smooth and malty with some caramel and toffee flavors. Overall good session ale

Cranberry and malty aroma. Tastes like a lighter ESB. Surprised at the brown ale categorization here at RB. Not surprised Tallgrass used some English malts and hops here as this is the most English tasting ale I’ve had from America. Nice, decent flavor, easy to drink.

On tap. Served a dark brown color with a decent head that faded quickly to some lacing. Aroma of malt, bit of chocolate and nut. Taste is simiar with malt, bit of chocolate and nut. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Moderate body, smooth and the character is a bit muted. Nice beer that has an English feel to it.

can @ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Clear brown with a firm 1" head and swirls of lace. Taste is bigger than I expected - malt that is joined right away by toffee and unsalted peanuts and pencil sharpenings. It moves smoothly to a mild hop finish. It certainly delivers a lot for 4.4%, but it doesn’t satisfy enough to be a "pub ale."
