A sweeter than expected brown ale. Rich hazel-nuttiness, with some sweet caramel and toffee. Well balanced and quite smooth, with some floral, herbal hoppiness showing through as well. Finishes quite lingering, enjoyable! BeerandBlues2 (13304) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 18, 2006
Draught. Pours mahagony-amber with an edgy tan head and spotty lacing. Aroma is light milk chocolate, caramel malt, maple, meal (grain) and yeast. Medium bitter chocolate malt, caramel, sour malt and yeast, grain and meal. Medium bodied, thin and smooth palate. Ratman197 (14822) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 16, 2006
Bottle pored aq clear brown with a small amber head. Aromas of carmel, toffee and nuts. Palate was light bodied. Kinda watery actually. Flavors of toffee, carmel and a bit of nuttiness with a lingering bittersweet finish. Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Bottle. Notes of caramel and toffee with an ok head on the pour. Light coffee and roasted grain flavors upon tasting. Pretty decent for a brown that I am not a big fan of. Watery, but maybe a plus for me with this style.

Had this on-tap at the brewery. Beer poured a clear, dark-amber color with a small, creamy, off-white, mostly diminishing head and nice lacing. The aroma is moderately malty with roasted grain, cookie and caramel; trace notes of herbal hops and a light miscellaneous note of cherry. The flavor begins with a trace of sweetness and gives away to a long, moderately bitter finish. The body was medium-to-full with a watery texture and lively carbonation.

Brown, as one might expect from a brown ale. Faint caramel aroma. Hint of maple, hint caramel, hint of this, hint of that, etc, etc - perhaps a bit too understated for its own good? Thanks to Indana_Red for the trade! sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 21, 2005
Tasted 9/30, Dillon Dam Brewery. GABF weekend 2005. Brown with a slight ruby hue. Good malty nose. Light malt roast, with coffee and toffee flavors. Smooth nutty flavor. Nice brew. I would have to say the best example I tried from this spot. Oakes (17664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2005
Medium brown colour. Bold nutty aroma and flavour. Quite sweet, but with complex nutty, toasty malt notes. A little watery in the finish but otherwise a good example. Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Brown, light head and small lace. Nutty and fruity aromas. Toasted malts and some bitter hops. Cocoa in the flavor with earthy hops and toasted malts. Smooth finish.
