Lasting dark beige / light brown head. Brown color. Chocolate aroma and fresh hops. Smooth malty taste with a small tart finnish. Medium body. A good brown ale. nickd717 (4835) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 18, 2012
16oz bottle from New Zealand, damn dogg! Far away place if there ever was one, other than like Pluto or something. Dark brown in color with a finger width of tan head and some lacing. Nice aroma, nutty and roasty with coffee notes. The flavor is definitely to the roasty and bitter side of the style. Coffee grounds and just a mild nuttiness. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated. A great brown ale. BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours with a kind of lightish hue for a brown ale. Clear, deep bronze with a bit of red highlights. Medium sized off-white head with good retention and lace. Aromas are of hops: grape, marmalade, stonefruit, light citrus, blackberry (maybe some brambling cross?), some brown sugar, molasses, light roast. Medium grain/cereal character, toffee, light esters. Flavors are grainy, hoppy, fruity, floral, lychee, citrusy, medium bitter. Lots of tea like notes as well. Earthy, light toffee. Medium bubbles, somewhat dry with a lingering bitterness and a fuller body. Kristall-König (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - APR 27, 2012

Wombata (625) - Kobe, JAPAN - APR 12, 2012
Aroma: Fruity, orange, light-medium licorice and coffee
Palate: Initially smooth turning to bitter. Full-bodied.
Flavor: Initial flavors of ripe orange and tropical fruit with chocolate notes are followed by a surge of hops, assisted by carbonation, on the mid-palate. The finish becomes increasingly dry with rising bitterness and licorice and charred coffee flavors.
Comments: Perhaps Brown Ale is misunderstood. What I’ve had has been pretty bland and dull. But this has plenty of character with evolving flavors and texture, which, for me, means complexity. deusax (459) - Grenoble, FRANCE - APR 8, 2012
on tap @Pomeroy’s. forte amertume, pas vraiment fan. Bière de grande qualité cependant jvhemert (401) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 6, 2012
AROMA: bread, toast, nuts, roasty
APPEARANCE: brown, clear, frothy,
TASTE: very bitter, light sweet
PALATE: full body, oily feel, average carbonation, bitter, long finish,
OVERALL: too bitter and the sweetness does not work with it, not very interesting set of aromas. muffel (150) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - MAR 28, 2012
