on tap-pours an offwhite head with copper color. Couldn’t get the aroma. Taste is sweet (there’s a theme developing with many of their beers), caramel, malt, hops. Not as dark/roasty as most browns. I enjoyed this more than the standard brown.

hopscotch (11170) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2006
Draft... GBOA ’06... Crystal clear amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Subtle aroma is malty, lightly chocolaty and nutty. Malty, mildly sweet flavor. Light-bodied and watery with soft carbonation. Finishes thin. A little boring, but very drinkable.

DocLock (10830) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2004
Rated: 750 ml bottle. This is a good broan ale, with a slight head. It is malty, but seems a little on the sour side. Subdued hops, and a finish that is malty and a bit tart, with hints of black cherry. A complex beer.

Verre de dégustation, provenant d’un fût, dégusté au Atlantic City Beer Festival 2007 (Atlantic City, NJ). Arôme: Odeur de malt et de noix. Apparence: La couleur est brune translucide.

Palette: Le corps est mince avec une texture légèrement crémeuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de caramel sucré en arrière goût. (Rating #902)

AirForceHops (7536) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 28, 2010
On draught at the brewery. Poured a dark copper color with thin white head, very light lacing. Aroma is real weak with maple syrup and nuttyness. The carbonation was light and the mouth feel was very watery, lacking any kind of real body. Very one dimensional.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2005
Bottle: Dark caramel, hazy, thin off-white spritzy head, spotty lacing, no real carbonation.   Slight sour woody nose, completely unexpected.   Past its prime maybe?   Sour start, like a non-dry Gueuze that isn’t overly tart.   Not like your typical Brown Ale.   Body is somewhat weak tho, and mouthfeel is less than average.   Mild tart finish, very subtle sweetness.   Guessing this isnt what they intended.   Decent, but definitely not a Brown Ale.   Thanks Jeff for the freebie.

ClarkVV (6821) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 9, 2005
2005 bottle from Zathrus, thanks! Pours a copper-amber color, initially clear, but towards the end of the bottle it gets extremely cloudy. Head is off-white and fully diminishing to a ring, with no lacing. Aroma of brown bread, light grains, malt husks and soily, nutty, watered down hops. Very low strenght on the aroma as well. Flavor begins severely dry and terribly lactic. Guess there’s some infection here, as it’s sour and lightly acidic and completely attenuated. It’s hard to tell if this is just severely acidified mash, highly astringent grains or a true lactic infection. Upon further thought, there was no gushing, so perhaps it isnt an infection. Whatever the case, there’s no malt sweetness, just berry skins, dry raisins and watered down brown sugar. Body is light, carbonation is moderate and the texture is very watery. No alcohol apparency, no real hop flavor either. Light toasted notes on end.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2005
12 oz bottle. Clear light brown pour with a thin white head. Light malt nose, some nuttiness and a little acidic. Flavor is sharply acidic and revolting, clearly infected. Like drinking malt vinegar. Thin and watery mouthfeel. Why this brewery continues to bottle is beyond me. There beers really weren’t that bad at the brewery, thin and weak, but not infected. It seems like half of all ratings for their bottles mention infection. CLEAN UP YOUR BREWHOUSE. I won’t spend money on your beers again.
