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.

(On tap farmhouse tap n’ grill): Ennuyeux, peu malté, peu houblonné, croustillante et sans saveur sinon une légère brise florale.

VALIS (229) - 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.

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.

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

Aroma of yeasty hops. Tastes of fruity hops with caramel malt. Tangy hops notes.  Palate is medium bodied. Overall, pretty good, a hoppy beer for the brown ale style.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped: 3295051712. It looks like a brown should with its deep amber pour and lingering but smallish head. The aroma is rather weak with a little malt and a little hop but nothing outdoes the other. The body is medium and creamy. The taste tends to favor a clean, crisp hoppy character but it is also a tad astringent.

HardingG (76) - Butler, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Pretty good. A touch too hoppy - I’d prefer it to be smoother. Aroma was average and didn’t grab me - Appearance was great. Nice lasting head with plenty of lacing. In taste I noted the vanilla, but I also caught the over abundant hops which detracted from the overall and the palate.

Clear medium amber with a ring head and spotty lacing. A Traditional ale with more caramel malt at the beginning, more hop balance at the finish. Works well enough to have again, but certainly not a memorable brew.
