pours clear brown with a lasting beige head and some sticky lacing. light aroma with sweet, malty notes with some nuttiness and maple. taste is hoppy for a brown ale with notes of dark, slightly roasty malt and some spices. finish is sweet with spice notes. a very subtle but enjoyable beer . superspak (6488) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2012
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled 11/9/2011. Pours slightly hazy reddish brown color with a nice 1-2 finger dense khaki head with great retention that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Some slight spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of caramel, biscuit, molasses, toasted malt, herbal hop, pine, and light citrus. Some ok aromas, but there is some chemical-like off flavor noticeable. Taste of big caramel, biscuit, roasted nut, toasted malt, molasses, herbal hop, pine, and light citrus. Light bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, roasted nut, biscuit, citrus, and herbal on the finish for a short bit. Nice flavor balance with a good malt backbone. Medium carbonation and body; with a nice and fairly creamy mouthfeel. No alcohol warming noticed at all; very smooth to drink. Overall this is a fairly nice and enjoyable brown ale. Nice malt backbone as I like in brown ales; and very smooth to drink. note666 (1332) - Eindhoven, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2012

One of the best browns that I have tried! Clear dark brown with average head and body. Aroma and taste were roast and malty---with outstanding Citra hops for balance. shrubber85 (11806) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 10, 2012

Pours a dark amber with a khaki head. Aroma is toasty malt and a floral hoppy note. Flavor is sweet malt, light roast, and a good bit of hoppy bitterness. dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 9, 2012
Brown with foamy tan head. Lots of roasted malt in aroma, some nuttiness, cocoa and chocolate. Tastes quite sweet, molasses, brown sugar and syrup. Decent brown ale, but I’m starting to get a bit tired of the style. JK (6406) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 7, 2012
This is an excellent brown ale. Brown color. Thick and heavy palate, for the style. Sweet malt and pleasant grain flavor. Minimal hop character.
