I think the picture of wheat on the bright yellow label led me to believe this was a light colored wheat beer. I was very surprised to see the brown ale that poured from the bottle. Once I got over my initial shock, I noticed it poured from the bottle with a nice thick tan head atop the dark brown beer. Tasted and smelled like chocolate with a slightly hoppy finish. Not bad, just not what I expected. They really should tell you on the bottle what type of beer is inside. regal (23) - Ringgold,Ga., USA - MAY 22, 2003
Nothing special here.Easy drinkable beer.Seems very lightly carbonated.Dark brown color, but very light tasting beer. jazz88 (2679) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 19, 2003
Bottle. Dark brown in color with a creamy light brown head. A light coffee hint to the toasted malts. Fairly robust for a typical brown ale. vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 17, 2003
Has a very dark brown color with some carbonation and a roasted/coffee smell. Taste is of roasted malts/coffee and finishes slightly bitter. Overall not a bad brown ale, but nothing spectacular. wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 4, 2003
Fairly average. Unbalanced flavors and strong chemical taste. Not all that good. The aroma was weak but smell roasty and malty.

Nice and dark color with a good head. Pungent and sweet aroma. Tasted malty and unassuming. Not complex, almost a little flat (in the flavor, not carbonation). Burnt finish with hoppy leave. Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 29, 2003
Pours with a dark brown/black body topped by a medium thick tan head with a good amount of lace. Weak malty aroma with a slight smokiness. Not much of a nose to this beer. Slighty smokey/roasted malt flavor with a hint of coffee and hops and a touch of sweetness. medium to full bodied and smooth. BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 28, 2003

A dark brown ale witha diminished tan head. A nutty malty aroma. A light to medium body and a decent carbonation. A malty flavor with a slight nuttiness. Some caramel and chocolate with a decent bitterness.
