COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a true brown, not only because if its color but because of its stringent adherence to the style guidelines; a real beer connoisseurs dream. The hop flavor and aroma is adequately full and assists the roasted malt flavors that are perceived on the palate. There is limited fruitiness and the body is appropriate.

mully262 (56) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Bottled. A red-brown beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and nuts. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, wet hay, and chocolate, leading to a dry finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Maltser85 (337) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Pours a nice brown color with a tan 2 finger head. Nice English aroma on the beer. Some nice maltiness with hints of smoke, wood and nuttiness. A hint of roasted malt. The taste is very similar to the nose but with a bit of hop astringency in the middle of the palate. Very nice beer. Very clean and sessionable.

tmoreau (2829) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2013
12 oz. gift bottle from neighbor’s last Minn. trip stash. Poured to a Czech-pils glass with fair clarity to the amber highlighted brown color, bubbles & froth head, and ribbony cling to the lacing. The nose was lightly roasted, caramel, with some soft creaminess. The f;lavor was moderately bitter, with a touch of black tea astringency, complementary, smooth malt, and presented some dryness that was tweaked by a hint of wood & smoke. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. A nice, uncomplicated American Brown.

novels (424) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Nice brown ale, with some great balance between malts and hops. Nutty but not peanutty, more of an almond taste. Nice, especially considering the lower ABV.

48FanInCali (804) - California, USA - MAY 6, 2013
12 oz bottle. Brown pour with fairly then head. Nose and taste of malt, nuts, and a slight tinge of caramel. Actually tastes quite nice. Good lawnmower beer for those who are craving something less on the hop profile.
