On tap GABF 02: Heavy malts in the aroma, creamy lively body, amber colored with a good head. Long finish, very smooth. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - FEB 11, 2006
A chewy mouthfeel and a very grainey appearance are my first impressions of this beer. It was also my last of the night, so my palate was really feeling stretched. A very big malt component, with some sweet and rich caramel flavors, with just a hint of nuttiness and honey. Very light roastedness, and somewhat watery towards the finish, this one starts out strong and ends kind of bland and boring. Not a beer for stamina. ABUSEDGOAT (2733) - California, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Brown body, slightly darker than a Newcastle. Aroma is very nutty with notes of caramel, earth and some roast. Medium bodied. A decent brown ale. Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2004
The beer its release from the 12-ounce brown bottle resides in the glass a somewhat murky mahogany color with the head Bunyanesque in size, creamy in texture and a toothsome light tan in color, as it slowly erodes the lace that forms becomes a thick and clinging sheet upon the glass. Nose is nutty sweet, fresh and crisp, hints of caramel and the start sweet with a personable malt presence, the top middling in feel. Finish is delightfully acidic, and the hops abundant but not overly so, a fine drinking beer, a nice thirst quenching beer on a hot Arizona afternoon. Reid (2527) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 16, 2004
A light chesnut coloured ale, tan head.Some nice lacing.
not much of an aroma.
quite a thin taste even for a brown,very sweet..then some hoppy bitterness catches me by surprise near the end.
very thin and sweetish on the palate.
it drinkable but boring.

Draught at the brewhouse in Redmond. Clear brown with a creamy head. Light toasty malt in the aroma but not much. This flavor with just a touch of toasty malt and some alcohol spice. This body. Bland overall. This needs more body and malt character. troopie (2323) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Bottle. Poured red brown with thin white head. Light hop aroma. Medium to thin body, malty with a bit of bite. Light finish. scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - NOV 4, 2010
Sugary cereal aroma. Can’t get enough of that golden crisp! That and Postum. Clean hazelnut brown. Sweet and clean, more cereal, tasty beer. Zymurgeist2 (2179) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 12, 2011
Aroma of nutty malt sweetness. Clear chestnut brown with very little head. Slightly medium-thin mouthfeel. Malty with a little medicine. Chewy for the thin mouthfeel. Not bad.
