DalzAle (2040) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Bottle. Pour was dark brown with medium carbonation and somewhat nutty aroma. Flavor was plenty of caramel and malts, but not much else to speak of. Ok brew. Naven (1001) - Poway, California, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Attempted to drink this election night. Highly infected, with an extreme amount of carbonation and completely sour. Drain pour. BDR (2535) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2008
A solid session brown ale. Faintly carbonated with a distinctly biscuity aroma. Flavor of a solid brown ale. JK (6342) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Well, its a brown ale. Light red color. Low carbonation. Loads of lightly toasted malt, and very mild hops. Good enough in its style, a style in which a brewer can only do so much. tyler_mn (2464) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - AUG 18, 2008
22oz bottle. Decent amber/brown pour yields a creamy off white head with fair retention leaving moderate lacing. Aroma screams of toasted grain. Biscuits and overly baked crackers. A wisp of some sort of earthiness. An odd sweetness pokes it’s way through all the toasted malt as the beer opens. Watery and grainy on the tongue. Some caramel. Dirty leaf pile hops. Toasted almonds. Copper. Thin, watery and yet slightly flabby palate all leading to an astringent grainy and watery finish.

Smells of sweet sugar candy. Dark red color. And why is this listed as a Brown Ale? Very light on the palate, slight tinge of bread and hops on the way down. Really not much there in the way of flavor, slightly more once it warmed some. Not really my deal, certinaly not at 4.50 a bottle. badgerben (5372) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 7, 2008
Copper color with a thin head. Biscuty and grainy aroma. Lots of biscut, toast and grain flavors. Somewhat bready. Would not have pegged this as a Brown Ale at all. grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 6, 2008
Pours brown with a thin head. Aroma of caramel, biscuit, nuts. Very nice flavor. I love a good brown ale an this is one of the best I’ve had. moelikebeer (221) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - AUG 1, 2008
Bottle. Dark amber pour with no head. Aroma of malt, biscuit, and caramel. Similar flavor with a little nuttineses and a touch of hops. Skyview (6115) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 1, 2008
Purchased a 22-oz bomber at Cellar’s Wine & Spirits in St Paul, Minnesota. Pours a clear copper amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that dissipates to a fine film and thin off-white ring. Aroma of light toasted caramel malt, a touch of brown sugar, and some grassy/earthy hops. Taste is light to medium bodied, light carbonated with flavors of light roasted caramel malt, a touch of iced tea, roasted nut and some grassy hops. Finish is a little thin to satisfy the Conservatives with a light roasted nut malt and iced tea aftertaste.
