Draft at brewpub. Pours brown with a thin brown head. Slight caramel note on the nose. A bit of malty goodness on the tongue with a hint of nuttiness. Clean finish. Hoping this would be stronger. nickd717 (4841) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 28, 2010
On tap at GABF as I was pouring for Bull & Bush. Pours a fairly typical darker brown color with a well-formed off-white head and good lacing. The aroma is nutty and chocolatey, not too intense but nice. The flavor is heavy on chocolate malts, lending a bit of a Hershey bar flavor to it, with caramel and nutty notes in there too. Medium-bodied with average carbonation and a pretty smooth mouthfeel. Solid example of the style overall from the surprisingly good Bull & Bush. goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2007
Tap @ the Brewpub. Poured a clear copper-brown color with an off-white head. Chocolate and caramel aroma. The flavor was toasty with some chocolate. Light bodied. A little thin. drjay44 (3800) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Draft. Pours a thin off white head, with minimal lacing, over a clear brown (SRM 25) body......nose is light toffee.caramel, light cocoa, chocolate.....taste is cocoa, chocolate, nuttiness, slight toffee/caramel, finishing with a light bitterness......mouth feel light of medium, slightly astringent, carbonation low. This is a mild take on a Northern English Brown Ale. It is, overall, rather simple in its construction with minimal complexity, but it does fall into the style.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear brown with a slight red tint and a creamy tan head. Nutty and malty aroma, vanilla, graham crackers, grass, light maple syrup, and brown sugar. Taste is somewhat bland, nutty, malty, bready, and grassy with a light bitter finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Ok Brown.

Pint on tap at Euclid Hall in Denver. Sweet chocolate notes in the aroma with some moderate roast. Lightly metallic. Transparent dark amber-brown body with a medium, fizzy khaki-beige head. Starts with sugary chocolate maltiness. Becomes a little toasted in the middle. Finishes with more sweetness. Pretty good and flavorful. A bit sugary and sweet, though.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a brown color with a thin white head. This might be one of the better brown ales that I have ever had. It is rich, chocolatey and full of flavor. I would drink this beer regularly and I don’t even like the style. This is full of lots of complex flavors. Mildly roasted with an unexpected spiciness. dnstone (3492) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Not much aroma. Deep brown color. Mild maltiness with a bready-nutty finish.
Notes: Pub visit during ’09 GABF Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - DEC 25, 2003
