Tap at Victoria Gastro Pub. Looks brown, but that’s about it. It has none of the subtle flavors and maltiness that I expect in a brown. Very bland. It’s not bad, but it’s not good, and it’s barely a brown.

BeerandBlues2 (9400) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Tap at Victoria Gastro Pub. Pours clear brown with a small, fizzy off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is toast and cookie malt, light earthy hops, stone fruit and berries. Flavor is tart stone fruit and berries, light hops and bitterness, toasted malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

It has a malty smell with caramel mix. There is almost no head and it is a dirty cloudy light brown. There is a hint of cherry in the flavor with other malts. The brew is decent, but not great.

Lenusik (119) - Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2013
This says ’brown ale’ on the bottle, and it appears ’brown’ in the glass, but there is nothing else about it that screams ’brown ale’. The aroma is more hoppy and sweet malt than nutty and caramel. The flavour the same, a little too hoppy and unbalanced to be a true English style brown ale.

12oz into a pint. Pour is an average slide of brown and mild mocha. No real substantial carbination, flat at most times. Brown ale body does not present itself consistently, leading to more of a flat brew. head is receding and bland. Taste is medi oaker and dull, but can and does resemble a fine finishing brown at the beginning with its sweet malt and brown sugar additions. the price of the 12 pack was good though.

Marheb (1945) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 9, 2013
(On tap farmhouse tap n’ grill): Ennuyeux, peu malté, peu houblonné, croustillante et sans saveur sinon une légère brise florale.

VALIS (222) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Nice amber color, small head, light lacing. Sweet smell of caramel. Tastes on the light side, a little more robust than some brown ales but less so than the great ones. Not bad but probably wouldn’t buy again.

beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle. Deep amber color. Thin head. Aroma of floral hops, cherry, and bready malts. Tart palate, very bitter and sour for a brown or amber ale. Some hops character, vague spicy cherry and brown sugar, and some bitter malts. Just hit me like a brick, but not in a good way.

Cakes (358) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2012
12 oz Bottle. Pours hazy, brown-amber with thin off white foam. Good complex aromas of caramel, nut, and light fruit. creamy and rater thin.

the aroma is solid with caramel, hints of vanilla and a richness. the flavor doesn’t match the nose a mild caramel flavor and light hops. though very little and it’s very mild. the finish is way to hoppy for a brown and leaves a odd sweetness not very nice
