Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2001
A spicy, almost minty aroma, a sweetish, grainy flavour, thin body and late astringency. Reminds me of Newcastle.

bhensonb (10699) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 4, 2007
Deep nutty, earthy, malty aroma. Ruby tinged amber color with a beige head that flattened with a small amount of lacing. Medium bodied. Creamy carbonation. Suggests dirt for flavor. Oh, make that earthy. This is gritty, roasted malt. Itís not caramel; itís not toffee. Itís roasted nut with a light touch of cacao. A lot smoother than many American browns. The finish is arguably a bit dry, and there is some mild bitter. Mostly it is that gritty old American brown nutty maltiness. Better than very many of the style.

Bottle. Clear brown pour with a small, off-white head. Subtle malt aroma. Flavor is lightly roasted malts and faint hops. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Finishes with light sweetness. Not bad.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 4, 2009
UPDATED: APR 10, 2010 Cask at Churchkey. Muddy chestnut color with very scant bubbles and no lacing. Aroma of untreated pine and caramel. Decent malt flavor, but could use just a touch more hops. Fairly thin body. Not much finish.
