mcberko (17809) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2011
12 oz. bottle, pours reddish dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of toffee, dried fruits, toasted nut and caramel malt. Flavour of sweet dried fruits, some off-balanced sour notes, toasted malt and light hops. Nothing too inspiring.

Oakes (17664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2008 Chestnut brown with a garnet accent. Not convinced this hasn’t been sitting on the shelf too long - a bit tinny on the nose, with the more normal nutty malt stuff. Body is medium, bitterness about that for the style. The malts are nutty and sweet, leaning towards toffeeish and with a fair bit of richness relative to most other widely-available browns. Possible age issues aside, not a bad example.

Brown toffee color, vanishing brown head. A bit tight malty and cheese aroma. Medium-bodied, malty, late hoppyness. Lacks normal sweet notes of brown ale.

yngwie (17049) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 10, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2011 Bottle. Clear, mahogany pour, topped by a small, beige head. Quite fruity nose, with pine and citrus, but it has a solid malty background. Definately malty flavor as well, but they blend with a good dash of bitterness, citrus and pine. Medium body. Bitter finish with pine and fruit. Not what I expected from a brown ale, but it sure is a nice one. Rating: 6-4-6-4-13-3.3. 070801

Bottle, courtesy of geokkjer. A dark chestnut colored beer topped by a small, dense beige head. Nutty nose with a bready touch and a pleasant hoppyness. The palate is smooth, but maybe a bit too carbonated. Medium body. There’s a little sourness in the flavor, with nuts, dried fruits and bitterness being the most dominant. There’s also a touch of coffee towards the nutty, slightly bitter end. An easy drinking beer that is slighlty better than most brown ales, but it’s sort of old fashioned and dull. A nice beer though. 110305

Dark brown, healthy head. Hoppy sharp aroma. A bit fizzy. Full malty slightly burnt taste. Decent brown bitter slightly sticky finish.

3.2
MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2004
Bottle. Very malty aroma, hint of bonbon. Nice chestnut colour. Light brown head, disappears too quickly. Malty, sweet/sour flavour, reminding me of a slightly failed homebrew. But nice enough beer still.

Benzai (15586) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle at -believe it or not- a tabletennisbar. Weird! Brownish color, off-white to beige head. And then I got totally distracted because the two girls I was talking to were that nice that I totally forgot about the beer. Wasn’t too bad, but not very interesting either. Well this is worthless as a rating but while drinking the beer I had a nice chat with those girls so my priorities weren’t with rating this beer..
