5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Bottle: Carmel in color, moderate to large foamy sandy hued head, very nice lacing.   Soft malt nose, seems to be mildly sweet.
Hop aspect is minor.   Pale malt flavor, very slight cereal and/or cardboard.   Minor enough to where it doesn’t really
detract.   Little to no hop presense.   Light, fairly clean, easy on the palate.   I spoze as an English Style Brown thats why
its not that agressive or at least assertive.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Does sorta fall off at the finish.   Splains
why its fairly clean as not much lingers.   Light, quick to finish, but with some mild malt flavors.   Not bad, certainly worth a
try. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber body with a large foamy off-white head that took forever to subside. The nose is showing a good bit of diacetyl with a bit of toasted malt. The diacetyl plays a major role in the flavor as well unfortunately, covering up most of what thin malt is present. Just a little bit of sweet toffee and caramel gets by all the butter. Minimal to no hoppiness. Mouthfeel is light bodied with a slick slight clinginess. Not so good, but I have a pretty heavy dislike for beers that show a heavy buttery quality to them. vyvvy (6470) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 26, 2007
Thanks to Beerdrenched for sharing this. Pours hazy amber with a light tan head. The aroma has grainy apples - red and green, then malt and no hops. Medium body with moderately sharp carbonation. The taste is very sharp and sour with funky apple junk. The finish was even more sour and just off. I hope this was just a old bottle because it was atrocious. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Pours dark amber with a small off white head. Hoppy aroma with fruit basket and spicy caramel/toffee malts. The flavor is caramel malty and fruit. Very plummy with a strong hop bitterness in the end. A nice beer. nuplastikk (6277) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2009
12oz bottle. Brownish-red color with a minimal, patchy head. Lots of amber malt in the aroma, quite deep and pungent. Tastes a little past it’s prime to me, but Ambers are odd creatures I suppose. Some off flavors of butterscotch, diacetly bomb. Borderline sour. Not really bad I suppose, just seems like it’s way past it’s prime. Medium bodied. OK at best.

Bottle from Bev Mo Fresno. When purchased it was covered with dust so I am assuming it was relatively old. I purchased because I wanted to rate it. It also has Brew 1135 stamped on the bottle. Probably the freshness/dating code. Whatever. Pours a muddy amber color. Aroma is some grass, some roasty caramel malt flavor, and a little sour citrus. Flavor is pretty much malt dominated. Started with a sweet dirt and malt flavor accompanied by metallic notes. As it warmed it became more sweet and toasty. Not bad for how old it probably was. A decent amber. No residual sugars or resiny hops linger. Pretty wattery mouthfeel and body. JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAY 12, 2002
Slightly lower marks as the beer was oxidized. More of a octoberfest grain bill than an english brown. Nice and malty, just nothing special. thedm (6183) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 4, 2007
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a copper brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was brown malt and sweet. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again. Skyview (6055) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 22, 2008
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Brennan’s Country Farm Market in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Pours a hazy reddish brown amber brew with an average off-white head that slowly dissipates to a fine film and off-white ring top. Aroma of light caramel malt, a touch of toffee, flowery hops, and a tart berry character. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with some tart caramel malt and toffee. Finish is semi-sweet, a touch of fruity aftertaste with a dry citrus hop finish that slowly disappears after the finish. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 12, 2010
clear light orange with a creamy off white head. Faint malt and grain aroma. Slightly sticky palate and a brassy malty taste.
