Bottle:   Pale brown, a sort of deep caramel, moderate frothy sandy head, nice lacing.   I did think it was
odd that the bottle gushed when I opened it, yet it doesn’t appear or smell infected.   Huge honeycomb cereal like
aroma... not my favorite.   Has that sticky honey mealiness that I typically dislike.   Lets see how it tastes.
Thankfully less mealiness and honeycomb like cereal on the tongue, but its not a toasty/bready type of Brown Ale.
Sweeter than most, more honey and mealiness than I care for, but thankfully not as strong as the nose suggested.   Fairly
full bodied.   Finishes a bit sticky, honeycomb like sweetness.   I would prefer my brown a bit more toasty with some
noticeable hops.   A bit too sweet and cereal like for my tastes, but perhaps a little less than others. jonno (2878) - JAPAN - APR 26, 2013
Excellent full bodied brown. A little roasty, caramel, toast, cocoa, dry. Moderate hoppoing. Very British with a dollop of PNW on top. DTM (798) - Vacaville, California, USA - APR 24, 2013
Bottle from Raley’s in Vacaville, CA. Smelled of roasted malts. I was very pleasantly surprised by this one. Just the right amount of malt with carmel and chocolate tones. Very solid brew, kevinator (2574) - The Colony, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2013
A little disappointed. Anchor brews very traditional beers, which although high in quality, seem to fall behind today’s unique elements of the craft brew industry. The aroma was faint malt, but not toasted. The color was a dark brown with a creamy head. The palate was heavier but not so in the stomach. More strong malt flavors that brought out a sourdough essence. No evidence of hops here. Again, OK but not great. olr1984 (1500) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 23, 2013
12 oz bottle pours dark hazy brown with small head. Roasted malt aroma. Malt and dried fruit taste.

Hazy copper colored beer with an off-white head. Aromas of caramel, and some hints of chocolate. Tastes of earthy notes, caramel, butterscotch, toasted cereals, and some semi-sweet chocolate. Perfect balance of sweet and not too sweet. Earthy, chocolaty finish. Medium bodied and surprisingly robust yet easy to drink. Try it out. CH-303 (2338) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - APR 14, 2013

Bottle split with wife pours translucent tan, small white head. Nose is minimal but has some whisp of malt. Taste is more sweet than balanced, has elements of light caramel, a tad ’o nut. Light flowers on the finish. Body is light and thin at times. wxman (1840) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2013
Pours a clear garnet-brown with a robust lasting yellow, off white head. Wild flower and spice aroma. Sweet roasted malt flavor along with maple syrup pancakes and a mild floral hoppiness. Pretty fine brown. jaghana (6220) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - APR 13, 2013
