3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours very dark brown with almost no head. Brown sugar, coffee and burnt toast aromas. Sweet nutty flavors fade into some hop presence and are followed up by roasty tones. Full on the palate with very subtle carbonation.

Under rated beer. A very light brown ale slash hoppy pale in my opinion. Slight roasted malt flavor with a stein hopps finishs. Smells like roasted malts. Tasty one.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz can poured into a pint glass.
The Face-Down Brown pours a mostly clear dark amber with a very thin tan head that doesn’t last long. The aroma is a very faint bread and caramel. The flavor is caramel and bread with a touch of floral hops. Overall the beer is a bit of a disappointment.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer is a brownish-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate and slight hops. Light to medium body with flavors of chocolate malt, caramel and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

Strongly resembles a coca cola. Rich malty aroma with hazel nut and milk chocolate. Nut and toffee flavor but also has a little skunkiness. Aroma kinda reminds of the rogue not brown, but the taste and texture isn’t nearly as smooth. Medium bodied and oily.

Can from Hops and Pie. Malty and sweet. Hints of brown sugar, chocolate, toffee and some nuttiness with a malt forward backbone. Nice brown ale in a can.

"OK brown ale. Average across the board...lightly roasted and nutty with a very light hop presence. Quaffable but not very interesting, really.........."

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours a medium brown, with little white head. Aroma is malts with caramel and roasted notes, slight hoppiness. Taste is caramel malts, slight roasiness with a solid hop presence bringing slight pine notes and a light bitterness. Palate is medium body, light carb. Good beer from a not very exciting style.

Malty chocolate aroma. Taste is very malty and slight chocolate but not sweet and well balanced. Get a slight floral hop aftertaste which prob helps balance the malt. Bitter finish. Overall a very good brown.

Shaker pint draft at The Red Onion in Aspen, Colorado. The pour is a hazed brown light copper with a one inch tan head. The aroma is nut, lightly roasted malt and a soft sweetness caramel. The taste is a clean balance of the soft roast malt, hazelnut, and a touch of lingering sweetness from the caramel. The palate is light to medium bodied, active natural carbonation and the lightly sweet finish. Clean and easy drinking.
