Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Nutty sweet aroma with some toasty malts. The flavor has light nutty sweetness, toasted bread, and a light floral bitterness. Pretty good. Braudog (6804) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Draft at the brewpub on Coxe. Yep, it’s Brown. Mellow and creamy. Like a lot of the beers at this place, it seems a bit too thin, unfortunately. Just a hint of a brown ale lurking in here. (#4297, 10/5/2011) Cybercat (6022) - Georgia, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Pours a clear mahogany-amber - pale buff head is thin, but that may be the ay it was poured. Malty aroma has earthy and cinnamon hints. Flavor starts with a malty core and adds notes of cinnamon and horehound, as well as an earthy hint. Mouthfeel is fairly firm and somewhat fizzy. A good stunt.

Pours brown from tap with a thin head and a bit of effervescence. Not a lot on the nose or the tongue. Meh. ChainGangGuy (4920) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Appearance: Pours a clear, medium brown body with a slight, slender white head.
Smell: A nose of bread, barley, and a dusting of cocoa powder backed ever so slightly by hints of dried herbs.
Taste: Lightly sweet, toasty malts, with some herbal hop tones akin to a brewed cup of tea. Then, some late-arriving sweetish hints of caramel and cocoa. Very, very minor touch of citrus fruit. Lightly bitter. Drying, but elements of the darker malts leaning towards cocoa on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: It’s okay, decent for a light, earthy brown ale.
