COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

A tasty brown ale that is well bodied and deeply mixitured. This is the ticket if you want something in the middle.

ordybill (327) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has an awesome aroma of toasted malt. Appearance- A beautiful brown color that has a thick light brown head on top. Taste- An excellent toasty malt flavor with a caramel finish. Palate- This is a medium bodied brew with moderate carbonation and has a semi-creamy feel to it. Overall- Excellent brew, first time drinking this and it wonít be the last.

Bottle at home. Pours ruby brown with tan head. Citrusy hops on the nose. Hops up front on palate, as well. Very mild toasted malt flavor, hints of caramel. Finishes slightly dry. Seems a bit too carbonated. Straightforward and very drinkable. An enjoyable brown.

A: Prodigious rocky head of beige with great retention. Dark ruby/mahogany color. Good looking. little visible carbonation. S: Slight cocoa and roast with a slight hint of bitter hop T: Bitter and roasty at first and no sweetness that I associate with the style. I like it because I donít tolerate much sweetness very well in beers. Not much taste development so sort of one dimensional but hey, I like that dimension. M: Much lighter bodied than expected but good that itís not gummy and cloying. Nice dry finish. I like it! O: Nice change from sweet heavy browns which I know are more the norm for the style. Iím on board for another purchase. Glad I tried it.

Standard brOwn. AVerage flavor with no real nut or malt note. Good for a back up if needed.

dfinney23 (1960) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Didnít strike me as all that hoppy but maybe I was just distracted by the excessive carbonation. Once the fizzy head died away the taste was pleasantly malty with some citrus hops.

NikkTwist (1812) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Draft at Khyber Pass. Clear dark copper brown with a large off-white head. A notably spicy brown ale. Almost a mild malty IPA. Easy drinking and thirst quenching - but not a proper English brown ale.

BrettTaylor (590) - Radford, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Poured as a taster. Lots of hop aroma on nose, consistent with the American brown character. Not bad, but I prefer English brown.

brown color; roasted malt aroma with chocolate notes; a medium bodied beer with roasted malt flavor and chocolate notes and a good deal of bitter hops
