Pours a slightly hazy deep reddish brown. Aroma is rich syrupy malt with a distinct earthy hop flavor. The taste starts out malty then changes to slightly sour. The finish is nicely crisp and dry. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Somewhat odd brown ale, mainly because of the Citra hops, but it’s still kind of interesting. Pleasant amount of roast and toast, along with a slight nuttiness. Loads of citrus, mostly orange, plus a lemon meringue note. Mildish yet balancing bitterness. Pinch of lactic-like sourness. I love Citra hops, but I don’t think they work so well with this beer’s malt bill. LinusStick (3447) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Ugh...a barely drinkable brown ale. Aroma was OK but a little nasty. There was roasted malt and caramel but a terrible vomit smell that came in and out. Pour was a nice enough medium brown with a one finger off white head. Taste wasn’t very good. The aroma of the vomit was unavoidable. There was roasted caramel malt and a staleness to the flavor but it was hard to find anything enjoyable. Decent carbonation.

Reddish brown colour, tan head. Aroma of caramel, malts, little fruity hops. Sweet malty flavour, caramel. Finish caramel, very light on the hops.

Quite OK, even though brown ale isn’t one of my favourite styles.
(Draught @ Cafe Samson, Nijmegen)
Reddish brown with tan foamy head. Malty, granola, dried fruit and light caramel aromas. It is quite sweet, but finishes with a light bitter/sour fruit flavor. Medium body. I was hopinhg for better, only mediocre. omikr0n (922) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 23, 2012
On tap at Zlej Festival. Aroma is quite complex combination of fruits, nuts, earthy, yeast. Taste is similar, with added scotch perhaps. mikemccarthy (91) - Huntington, West Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Pours a translucent, reddish copper with a thin, tab head that fades. Moderate lacing. Sweet, slightly fruity aroma. Light, effervescent mouthfeel - a little thin. Light, slightly odd flavor. Raisin?
