BiochemProf (179) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - APR 3, 2011
Foamy light tan head atop a cola colored pour. Slightly sour, yeasty aroma. Medium bodied fizzy mouthfeel. Slight sour tang with just a faint hint of coffee and a unpleasant metallic taste. Not particularly enjoyable.

On draft and in bottles. This is a straightforward, no-frills, crowd-pleasing, middle-of-the-road, pretty boring Brown Ale. It’s brown, which shouldn’t really surprise anyone, and it’s sweet. It’s thin and there really isn’t any of that nutty, earthy, lightly roasted flavor that the best browns have. If this tastes like it was mainly made to fill the "slightly darker" sleeve of a brewery’s rotation, that’s because it probably was.

Brown pour from 12oz bottle from Christpuncher, who drain poured his. White head. Nutty, roasty and sweet aroma. Has a fruity taste to it, weird for a brown ale. A little tart and sweet too. Not horrible, not great.

Christpuncher (2665) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Drain pour. Too sweet and carbonated. Has a raspberry flavor in there with some roasted grain flavors. Pours brown with a tan head. Had out of a bottle at home.

Foxbush (1724) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 1, 2015
12 oz bottle from the AOPD monthly beers The brown ale poured a clear dark amber ale with an off-white head and lacing. The aroma was of toast and caramel malts with chocolate notes. The flavor has nutty notes and some bitterness with a sweet finish. The ale has a medium body with average carbonation.

rjplumer (954) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 29, 2015
The aroma has a sweet caramel nut malt character. Head filled my whole glass at first so I had to have a lot patience waiting for it come down. Brown clear body with a hint of amber. Dry caramel nutty taste. Not a bad brew but wish I didn’t have to wait 10 minutes for the foam head to calm down.

On tap at the ACBF in Boston. Pours brown with a tan head. Nose is malt and caramel. Taste is sweet with a nice nutty character. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Good brew.

Quick3Beers (819) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Nearly cloyingly sweet brown ale, syrupy, like a pecan pie made by someone who doesn’t know how to bake and forgot to add pecans but didn’t burn it or do a totally horrible job at it.

For a brown ale, this one had a lot of flavor. Not terribly malty but plenty and a good mouth feel. Not watery like many weak Brown Ales. Some hop but not much. I like it better than most brown ales. Nice deep Amber color. More character than what I expected. Pleasant surprise!

Pretty wussy. But I guess for a brown ale it's ok. I am about to try the double pigs ear so let's see if I like that better.

tfontana (571) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 31, 2015
UPDATED: APR 2, 2015 Bottle from Signal Variety, Plaistow NH. Aroma is malty and slightly nutty. Appearance is a beautiful, clear, dark amber with insignificant, fleeting white head. Taste is moderately sweet. Palate is light-medium body with average carbonation--perhaps a tinge too much. Finish is long with good, nutty sweetness. Overall, a good medium ale that satisfies.
