Draft. Amber/brown with small off white head. Aroma of caramel, cereal, and a hint of honey. Light body with notes of caramel, nuts, and honey. Travlr (26071) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Bottle. Deep amber brown color, medium tan head. Aroma of toast, light nuts, caramel. Taste is toasted caramel, dryish finish. Not bad. McCheese (6) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JAN 4, 2014 does not count
Aroma is dominated by cardboard and some mild bready malt. Pours a very clear orange/copper with a thin white head. Flavor follows what was found in the aroma, lots of cardboard, light bready malt. There’s also a noticeable sourness in the finish. Certainly not an "English Brown Ale". envane (586) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2013

Duft av malt, ellers lite lukt. Fin gyllen lys brun farge. Tynt dekkende skum. Liten svak smak av honning, ellers mer vassen smak. WheatKing (1338) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - DEC 14, 2013
BeerAdvent 2013 Day Ten. Pours amber, no head. Nose of caramel, paper. Flavour is paper with lemon tartness, caramel, got more offensive as we went through the bottle, neither of us could finish it. Drainpours get automatic 0.Xs on my rating scale. dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 13, 2013
Light brown, aroma is sort of herbal,and some grain. Taste is weirdly off, maybe it’s the honey, but there is a weird tartness and it’s not the good kind. Much preferred the porter. hamfisted (81) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2013
Advent Calendar. Bleah. Nasty. Fails to live up to anything in the description. Has a sour taste up front and a thin finish. Has nothing in common with a brown ale. JeanDuteau (18) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2013
It pours out amber but there is no head to speak of and what is there disappears quickly. I got a sniff of citrus but not much else. The taste is nothing special but it does drink well on the palate - medium with an upfront fizz that is not too long.
