Thanks to decaturstevo for sharing this one.
Dark brown, ruby tinged body that throws up an off-white head.
Leathery malt aroma.
Sweet overall with some sourness that leads to a tangy finish.

A dark brown appearance with a beige head. The aroma contains some nutmeg, caramel, and chocolate. The flavor is a bit dry with some caramel, chocolate with a nutty presence. This seems more like a brown than any alt Ive had but it was pretty good anyway.

Thin brown pour with no head, looks like a coke. Juicier bodied brew with toasted malts and caramel and vanilla touch. Dusty malty fruit character, with a souring, quiet finish. Decent brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 12 fl. oz. bottle with am expiration date of September. Presumably this is September 2008. Pours dark brown with a little ruby red mixed in. But it mostly brown. There is a beige, creamy head that stays around for a while. Aroma of cocoa, malts, and hops. Feels bold in the mouth. I can notice some hops in the flavor but it is not overpowering at all. Overall it comes across as crisp and clean. This was a nice brew.

Bottle, courtesy of hopscotch. Pours a dull brown color with a small tan head. Nice bright, lively sweet malt nose with bread crust and date sugar notes. Lots of bread crust in the body. Thin dry finish. A bit gassy but good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Courtesy hopscotch. Pours a cloudy dark brown, with a medium, well-retained light khaki head. Very mild aroma, tough to pick out much at all, although it wasnt offensive in anyway. A touch of light fruits, maybe some caramel malt, and a little biscuity. The flavor was of typical alt style, fairly mild, with not a huge amount of flavor. A little musty, some grapes and light malt flavors arose. Pretty forgetable, but drinkable.

Sampled on tap, this is a new Brown Ale that’s been introduced by Tuckerman brewing. I thought it was pretty good. Brown, copper tinted Ale, balanced malt aroma. Flavor is rich malts, semi sweet with a slightly bitter hop finish. Rich malts jump out at first but the rest is fairly mild, leaving for a little bit of a thin mouthfeel. I’d get it again.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a coppery brown color with an off white head. Aroma is malty, but faint. Mouthfeel is somewhat thin with moderate carbonation. Flavor is malty & nutty. A pretty good average brew.

Bottle… Clear, beautiful, copper ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Nutty aroma with chocolate and cinnamon notes alongside restrained herbal and floral hops. Medium to full-bodied and lightly creamy with moderate carbonation. Perfectly balanced with just a hint of acidity. Insinuations of chocolate and caramel malts, but bland and very thin. Mid-length, crisp, modestly bitter finish.
