22oz bottle-big tight tan head with trailing lace-dk copper. A-roasty/cocoa-med malt/oat, yeast. T-roasty/chocolate-med malt, some earthy hop. Slightly quick finish.
Bottle. Pours a clear light brown body with a one finger fizzy light brown head that faded to a thin covering. The nose is very light, just a bit of toasted malt, light caramel, husky grain, and a bit of nuttiness. The flavor is a bit thin as well, slightly sweet with a little too much graininess and minimal hop bitterness on the finish. A little bit of nutty malt on the back end. Light bodied and a little watery in texture with fizzy active carbonation. A little too thin on all fronts for my tastes. Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Aroma of raw oats and nuts. Clear, light reddish brown, very active. Starchy malt flavor, very dry and crisp feel. Not hoppy exactly, more bitter than the average brown, or at least lighter in other ways. Feels a touch underdone. SrSilliGose (3331) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle. Not a typical american brown ale. No nuttiness. Not much in the way of hops. Tasted like an early onset of some kind of infection (faint balsamic, touch medicinal). Against some old vegetal toffee dough. Not very good. Maybe an off bottle but not sure. bbbeer (819) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Brown color with medium tan head. Aroma is not bad, some roasted malts and brown sugar. Light body. Flavor is unobjectionable but not too distinctive, lightly roasted malt with faint spice background. Easy to drink and not bad really but flavors are kind of weak. nimbleprop (8382) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 4, 2013
22oz bottle pours a clear, amber brown with some thin, slightly off white head. Nose is fairly neutral, brown sugar, malt, cracker, dried nuts. Flavor is sweet, malty, brown sugar, a little root beer, cracker. Medium bodied, dry finish. Fairly simple.

Pours brown with low beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is scoth-alish, caramel, sweet. Taste is pretty much the same, malty enough. Overall: Fair beer, nothing outstanding. tom10101 (6085) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours at a RBQ tasting. Hazy brown with a small off-white head and good lacing. Aroma and taste of malt, brown sugar and nuts. Thin body. Easily drinkable. Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Brown with fleks of red. Cream colored head that was huge and fluffy, thought I could sleep on it. Taste is a bit nutty. Decent maltiness. The aroma was a bit offputting- metalic? bmerz (741) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 9, 2012
22 Oz. clear brown with ok tan head. thin earthy malt and spice aromas. Flavor us earth, toffee, and cocoa powder south a spicy moderately bitter and lactic finish. The mouthfeel is light soft and bubbly but finishes quite tannic. good and drinkable. wouldn’t seek out again. A lingering spiciness isn’t super pleasant.
