Bottle, St Louis. Big red and brown with a thin head. Caramel aroma. This drinks with a very smooth character, subtly nutty and somewhat toffee-laden. (#4405, 12/11/2011) gregwilsonstl (2466) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Brown, tan foam, medium sweetness, long finish,
I never thought I would say this sentence, but "Wonderful accentuation of nuts" Finhead (1742) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - DEC 10, 2011
A clear brownish-red pour with a light tan head. This beer has a very mild malt aroma. The light body has a thin texture with lively carbonation. The taste is very sweet with a touch of honey. rae912 (35) - Florida, USA - DEC 10, 2011
Pours dark brown with a thick white head. Can?t smell much initially. Nice flavour, slightly sweet, a little too light bodied though. seymour (1985) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Tasted from bottle into standard pint glass. Poured a clear, deep brown color with fluffy beige, lasting foam. Aromas and flavors true-to-style for Brown Ale, which is to say very tasty, but lacks the complexity of finer examples. I particularly missed a little tart, dry roasted barley. I do appreciate the slightly elevated alcohol percentage. I didnít detect it in the drink, but could feel it after a couple. Overall: a solid, malty, highly drinkable, down-to-earth beer.

Bottle. Poured clear brown color with an average Lorsch frothy light brown head that was mostly lasting good lacing. Moderate balanced sweet aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium toasted sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft drinkable beer. nike (966) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2011
This beer is just lacking any bite, especially for brown ale. Light body, light, watery, taste. Faint aroma, hints of roasted flavoring, I was hoping for more. Other hints of caramel and nuts, sweetish finish. AirForceHops (7139) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Grabbed a six pack of this in Portsmouth, NH. Used a pint. Thin white head, light lace. Nose is a weak roasted malt. Taste is very standard Brown. Caramel and brown sugar. But something in the taste isnít right. Has a strange flavor I canít quite figure out. Like a bad syrup. Itís not a terrible brown ale however, I wish I hadnít gotten a six pack of it. Below average at best. drpimento (3572) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 6, 2011
With a relatively aggressive pour a small, light tan head that quickly settled down to a thin light cover and a little bit of lace. Color is a clear, dark brown with red orange notes. Aroma is malt, marshmallow, caramel. Flavor isnít as good as nose, basically some neutral sweetness with a hint of caramel and a bit of bitter and tang. Body is on the thin side and carbonation is a little crisp. Finish is on the short side and since itís like flavor, not much there. Iíll finish this one and no more. edraz (12) - Alabama, USA - SEP 29, 2011
I recently tried three of the Nova Scotia beers and all three were very light in body. This one at least led me to buy a case at $10.99.
