COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A very traditional British brown ale. It has a distinctive brown color and has moderate maltiness and a medium body. At 4.3% ABV, and its unassuming flavor, this is a definite session beer. The overall impression is of a sweet, moderately malty mild ale.

Called BRN, is this the same? Pours clear medium brown, light brown head. Aroma is light toffee. Tastell is toffee, a little nuts, a bit of hops. Medium mouthfeel. Okay, nothing special.

This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a glossy burnt amber almost close to a brown color. Sly transparency weaves about. Fingers worth of white foamy head roamed here and there. Semi-sticky lacing, kinda messy. The aroma starts off with the normal qualities of an English Brown ale, sweet toffee rich to nutty character. The flavor leans sweet and smooth. More toffee than expected, but decent. Sly crisp sweet nutty to toffee aftertaste. Sweet wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fantastic sessionability about it. Carbonation seems to barely hit. Just really moves really nicely on my tongue. Overall, just a tad lighter in color than expected, but everything else is right on for the style.

Shot (499) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 9, 2016
On tap at the brewpub. Dark brown with a thin ring of foam around the glass. Aromas of slight wet dog, citrus. Crisp cola flavor. Slight citrus. Mild hop presence. Not a very sturdy brown ale. Not much distinctive character. Not very memorable.

Bottle. Poured a clear brown with a slight reddish hue and a very slight thin fizzy white head. Floral nutty aroma and flavor with a medium mouthfeel and lively carbonation. A slight astringent taste to it. A sessionable Ale.

Pours deep mahogany into a shaker. White head with little retention recedes to skim surface. Dark caramel and candy corn aromas. Soft with dark caramel and toffee upfront turning to bitter earth in the lasting finish.

Caramelized malty aroma and flavor. A little syrupy but not too much. Other than the malty not too much else going on here, but does have a full body. Little bit of odd home brew like taste. But an ok brown. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A bit boring brown and bland. Yeah it is true to style. On tap at lager house.

monk191 (1937) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 12, 2014
A decent brown. Pours a very nice deep red color with white head. Smells of maple syrup and a bit of chocolate. Taste is similar, not the most interesting but smooth and well balanced. Had on tap in Saratoga.

Draft in Saratoga Springs. Standard brow pour. A bit overly roasted + nutty average at best.

12oz bottle into a jelly jar pint, pours rusty brown with clouds of brown foilage within the brew. head is light, small, thin and leaves a ring round the glass, seldom lacing. Aroma sweet malty, some flat spices like nutmeg and dry pepper. Taste is standard brown, unflaterring malts, sweet cushioned barely existent hops, and a sweetness that never escapes one while endulging. A bit toasty and a bit nutty, but nothing profoundly remarkable. easy drinker, definately a brown, but nothing more. ok.
