Sipping this at Luella’s BBQ in Asheville. Nice typical brown color, not a lot of aroma, but plenty of flavor. Good balance.
Draft. A light clear brown. Scent of bread. Taste is nuts and rye. Server said it was her choice. Go with the Stout or IPA. bubbleflubber (2235) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - JAN 17, 2011
On draught at the brewer’s theater, it pours a murky copper into the glass with a fizzy head that reduces to a thin ring, leaving soapy lace. The nose has a bit of yeast and legume. The flavors are nutty with yeast sourdough. There is an aerated nut bitter finish. The mouthfeel is unilateral without a lot of complexity. The body is light with soft carbonation. An ok rate, but not a top-shelf brown. jcwattsrugger (12517) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2010

Hazy dark copper. There is a good nuttiness, but there’s also a strange thin bitterness that’s not entirely pleasant.

Clear brown, no head. Smells very bready, with a some mild peppery aromas mixed in with the toasty notes. Flavor is toasty, with a hint of rye, and maybe some notes of black pepper. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JAN 28, 2010

Draft sample at the 13th Annual Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Light brown in the glass with an off-white head that settles to a ring. Aroma of nut and toasted malts. The flavor found toasted malt, nut, and caramel. Light body. unclemattie (4357) - Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2009
On tap @ Asheville Pizza.
Light copper color, white head. Nice lace a Bit lighter than expected for a Brown Ale. Nice lace! Nice malt flavor. Toasted malt, distant wort aroma. Flavor is of rich toasted malt, hints of sweet malt, light hop bitterness. Light for a Brown Ale, tastes like a Scotch Ale though.
