On tap at New Bohemia with commonshawn. Bumped pint glass. Deep cola brown with limited head. Aroma is roasted malt with a little toffee sweetness. Taste has sweet elements with a kind of roasted nut quality. Thin mouthfeel and a rather abrupt finish. Kind of a brown sugar and toffee running throughout. Nothing impressive but it's drinkable. More impressed by the name than anything else. 1300!!

Tap at new bohemia ne. Cola brown black with medium white head. Roasty malt nose. Taste is malt, sugar, quick finish. Not bad.

Misspour at lax bar. Coca Cola color + generic nit brown aroma. Flavor is pleasant enough to start but a surprisingly adjuncty / unpleasant at the end.

ajnepple (7172) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 8, 2017
12 oz single from Total Wine & More - Laguna Hills, consumed via can on a camping trip. Mild aroma of caramel malt, toffee and toasted grains. Similar flavor, adding moderate sweetness and minimal bitterness. Light body with a watery feel and a smooth finish. A fairly simple, somewhat generic Brown Ale overall. Not bad.

355ml can. Very basic brown, drinkable, light roast, light cocoa, easier to drink. Meh.

Brown color. Nice rich brown. Caramel. Some mild smokiness. This is a decent brown, thats prob getting dinged for being AB.

kathouse (1940) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JAN 11, 2017
Very nice color and a creamy foam topper. Aroma of nuts and toast is mild. Rich flavor though and a lightly sweet finish.

Type: 12-oz. can
Glass: Hawai‘i Bowl shaker pint glass

Reviewed as: American Brown Ale
Misc.: Canned on Feb. 4, 2016

Had plenty of these, especially the week of the Las Vegas Bowl, but this would be my first time reviewing it. Liked it OK, giving it a 3.75 on Untapped. Although #CraftAdjace, it was certainly better than the other options in the suite. Not excited about having this canned way back on Feb. 4, 2016, but still need to review it.

Poured a medium brown semi-clear color with three fingers of light khaki-tan frothy head. Light bubbles coming up along the sides of the glass. Average watery lacing. Good retention. (Sight - 3.75)

Smelled English roasty malts, toffee, caramel, nutty malts, cocoa, hints of brownie and brown bread. Pretty good on the nose. (Smell - 4.00)

Taste followed the nose. Got those English roasty malts up front, followed by toffee, caramel, cocoa, nutty malts, light brownie batter, brown bread, biscuit and malt chocolate. (Taste - 4.00)

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long nutty finish. (Feel - 4.00)

This was even better than I thought with this review. Just a very good American Brown Ale. (Overall - 4.00)
