Headbanger (3325) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2008
12oz bottle(4/04)-A brownish amber body with a small head and an aroma of sweetness, malt, and caramel. Taste of the same with a little nutty taste thrown in. Nice brew.

RSRIZZO (1855) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2007
Had this beer on 4/23/2003. Aroma is sweet malt scent. Color is a hazy amber with good carbonation and thin head. Taste sweet and malty. Starting with a medium body it goes down slightly sharp. Nice Brown Ale.

badgerben (4479) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 28, 2005
Brown color with a medium head. Light malt aroma. Some nut flavors, but kind of a mold/cardboard finish, and I donít think itís an old bottle. Thin.

Nuffield (3691) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2004
Red brown with good head production. Something slighty spicy is there underneath the sweet front and malty caramel palate. Slight wet paper note. Thin palate. A "McBeer" as Adam aptly put it.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - OCT 21, 2004
Bottle. Astringent malty nose. Usual brown ale flavor. Nothing shocking or impressive with this one.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 4, 2004
THis brown ale pours with an amber body topped by a thin fizzy head with little lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet but bitter, nutty and slightly salty with a very slight roasty note. The flavor is very similar to the aroma with a bitter finish. Not anything out of the ordinary. Medium bodied, smooth and slightly dry.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2004
On tap at brewery. A light brown beer with a nice off-white head that holds up. No real aroma. Flavor of some faint malt that is overpowered by a odd chili flavor that I assume is from the hops. Really detracts from what otherwise seems to be a well made beer.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Silphium (3173) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 14, 2004
Deep red-brown body, clear, with an initially medium light tan head that dissipates quickly. Nice brown sugar, caramel, nutty aroma. Flavor is toasty, fruity and nutty with caramel, brown sugar, and red grape. Red wine/oaky finish is a bit too astringent. Light-medium bodied; this beer could be a tad heavier. Overall this is quite nice and a welcome treat. Itís been awhile since I tried a new brown ale.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2004
Dark plummy color, close to brown, reddish íround the sides. Decent, if short, off-white head. Aroma has traces of nuts, cocoa, and sweet malt, but rather shyly, even vapid. Very smooth on the palate, with a good, solid body, juicy malt, and slight hops, if any. Soft texture, good balance. Nice, drinkable, but none-too-complex. Better than many a brown ale, like certain ones in see-through bottles. Another good brew from Tyranena.
