commonmac (1369) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2017
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!!

commonshawn (1340) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2017
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 (7346) - Lakewood, 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 (1942) - 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.
