A- Malty, slightly roasty, peat.
A- Brown color, cloudy liquid, beige head.
T- Malty, bland.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish.
O- Pretty damn boring and not much going on at all. Like I couldn’t even come up with any half decent descriptors. I’ve officially decided Empyrean is the worst brewery in Nebraska. BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Bottle at home pours brown with a thin tan head. Slight malt and roast on the nose. Flavor follows. Some nuttiness also thin bodied ms finishes dry and slightly bitter. Decent beer.

Stopped in Lincoln, Nebraska after 600 miles of driving and found this beer buried in a cooler of Busch Light at a gas station where I'm pretty sure I was looked down on for driving a car without rust or that wasn't an oversized truck. It was worth the hick-dirty looks because this was a nicely created unpasteurized brown ale. Felt a little sugary somehow but full of taste. Nebraska will still be known for its tasty tractor gas more than its beer but I'm glad I found this one.

Like every other run of the mill brown ale. Lightly toasted, lightly sweet, minimal hops. Meh. strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle. Medium brown, light taste but some off tones. Just average not something to reach for.

Bottle poured a clear light brown hue w/ a quickly diminishing fizzy white head. Mild malt aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are ginger, caramel and hay. Light bodied and lively carbonation.

bottle from trade with billygoatbeard - still love a good brown and this is solid! aroma of malt, nut, caramel, roast. pour is an off brown that is hazy. Taste similar to aroma, nuts and sweetness up front and slight hops with slightest coffee maybe on backend. I would grab a six pack if this was local. Thanks Joel!

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2015 Even for a brown ale, Third Stone has a body that’s light and smooth. The carbonation is gentle and the texture is pleasantly slick. Of course, that minimalist body has a downside: the flavor and aroma get pushed into the background. While Third Stone hints at chocolate and roasted malt, it’s happy just to tease. In that sense, this brown ale doesn’t quite deliver. All the same, it’s a respectable brew. Mongo1965 (15) - Albertville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Pours a light maple color. Low head on pour but fine lacing. Get a good hint of chocolate and roasted nuts. Low hop presence and slightly sweet taste that lingers. ads135 (4934) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Its sweet, but not like English browns. Has a chocolate and nutty roasted flavor. Thickish and stick palate.
