COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Well, I love the song, the band and that darn beaver. It made me want to make a beer in it’s honor. Generous amounts of brown malt and marris otter malt make you want to love this ale. We hop this ale with Simcoe, Amarillo and Northern Brewer to enhance the flavor and the aroma of Wynona for your enjoyment! So get down with the brown.
Ingredients: Marris Otter 2 Row, Brown Malt, Carastan, Crystal 80, Chocolate Malt, Columbus, Simcoe, Amarillo, Northern Brewer Hops. 16 degrees, 3.8 degrees plato.

N3lson1 (898) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - APR 19, 2016
Drank from a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Has nice aroma of toasted caramel. Nice cloudy, brown color, with a bit of tan head. Taste is crisp and smooth, but still a thin body to a unfiltered brew. Not a bad brown ale! Label does say "exclusively with Warrior."

DandyWolfFloyd (1007) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2016
Aroma - nut, roast, and toast. Appearance - body is a slightly hazy ochre. The head is about 1/2" and off-white. Head collapses fast. Taste - nuttiness, caramel malt, some toast, and a touch of roast. Palate - full bodied, texture is creamy, the carbonation is average, and the finish slight roast astringency.

UDBeernut (2557) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2016
bottle from the local Warren, Pa rip and run. Right out of the bottle. Lots of nut, raisin, slightly sweet. medium body,

Bomber [happy birthday, Beethoven!]. Nose of crystal malt, earth, wood, molasses, maple syrup, chocolate, slight alcohol, slightly toasty. Pours ultra-dark blood red with a large foamy tan head. Light-medium body quite nicely malt, light bitterness and restrained sweetness (actually, I’d call it semi-dry without hop involvement) with cherry and lots of red berry, smooth roast and light-medium chocolate. Some nuttier notes to compliment the light wood and faint earth, faint raisin. Everything melds together well! Bitter and woody tones mesh super well in the aftertaste, best of CTZ and Northern Brewer without any of the minimal drawbacks. Fruitiness also a very nice, strong counterpoint, though it dulls itself somewhat into the generic with volume; faint peach under the berry, bare flashes of citrus here and there. No alcohol in the mouth, clean and creamy-soft as if oats were used, silky/velvety-smooth the whole way. Strikingly gorgeous finish and aftertaste, rising smooth ash/toast. Love this beer, tremendous balance and interplay, and quite moreish. I’d originally scored this a 3.8, but drinkability is a huge plus worthy of the bonus. [2015.12.16: 4.3]

Looks like age might be a factor here; some folks below report all roast and no fruit, but I think I’ve had one in reverse.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
jsporrer (526) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Pours a dark brown but not too thick with little to no head. Very nutty malty aroma. The roasted nuts and malt flavor is very strong giving it almost a coffee like taste but not too much. A little higher in alcohol content than most other Brown ales I’ve tried. Not harsh or bitter but the heavy roasted flavor takes away a little of the smoothness. Pretty enjoyable overall.

jcartamdg (2943) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Pours dark brown with a thick offwhite head. Aroma of big caramel malt, milk chocolate, molasses and brown sugar. Taste follows, sweet and malty with a nice roasty presence. Solid.

tia (1620) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Tap @ Sienna Mercato. Dark brown with tan head. Smells roasty and caramelized. Astringent, herbal, toasty, and (not too) bitter.

BREWMUSKCLES (2530) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 13, 2015
smooth silky palate that is full accentuates the flavors of vanilla honey and caramel and malt. some malt and hop in there with a touch of alcohol. great beer.

3.5
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
bytemesis (6295) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 3, 2015
Bottle. Pours murky chestnut, small tan head, some lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, hints of pine, citrus, toffee, ash, a light tart acetic note. Flavor is light plus sweet, no sign of that acetic smell on the tongue, light bitter, rich and malty, lots of roasted malts as well as molasses and toffee, some pine and grass as well. Likely better fresher, but still an interesting beer today. Medium body.

3.7
   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
bnokk (430) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 28, 2015
APPEARANCE - nicely dark brown, gets my mouth ready for the nice flavors I’m about to sip. NOSE - very little for my nose to enjoy. FLAVOR - surprising roastiness right off the bat. Smooth malty flavors take over from there. NOTES - really great brown ale. Solid contender with some of the bigger names out there.
