Jcarb28 (97) - Pico Rivera, California, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Poured very dark brown. Sweet, malty aromas with a toasty, coffee flavor to follow leaving a slight roast taste on the palate. Decent although this one had a bit of a porter style to it.

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: Hawaii Bowl shaker pint glass From: A Hard Rock Hotel hospitality suite Price: N/A Purchased: N/A; Received Dec. 13, 2016 Consumed: Dec. 18, 2016 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) 3.99 89 B+

CraftyHare (38) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2016
355ml can pours dark brown with generous foamy off-white head. Nutty, fruity, hoppy aromas with a hint of toffee and cocoa. Tastes of brown sugar, caramel malt, chocolate, dried fruit and nuts, but seems a little watery and lacks depth. Short sweet finish without bitterness. Not very refined, but still enjoyable.

PugUglyBrewer (332) - - OCT 31, 2016
A run-of-the-mill brown ale. Slightly caramel sweet with some nuttiness, earth, and light toast. A smooth and light brown that works great for being a fall/winter smash brew or a nice compliment to red meat barbecue.

Good smooth taste, never gives a sour after taste like most Browns. Very tasty. Goes good with this BLT Im eating.

radagast83 (7616) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2016
4oz from flight at the brewery. Poured a dark caramel color with a small off-white head. Aroma was nutty, like a decent brown ale. Light chocolate, nutty malts. Light sweetness.

tmoreau (3929) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2016
On tap at the Trop Lounge in the Tropicana, Las Vegas, and dispensed to a Czech-pils glass showing a clear, brownish amber color, with a presentable layer of fairly lasting, off white head foam, and a sheet-like coating of lacing. The nose was toasted and lightly woody, with a touch of cocoa. Medium bodied, with rather lively carbonation that had a bit of seltzery nature to it, the taste included a nicely lingering, slightly roasted & earthy bitterness. A drinkably decent representation of the style.

adasko (2046) - Poznan, POLAND - JUN 5, 2016
Not really my style, but as a brown ale I have to admit its pretty good. Caramel, nuts, malts. Quite complex, medium body, pleasant mouthfeel.

djd07 (12624) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 12, 2016
Can. Pours a clear brown with small off white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is wet biscuit and toasted malt. Medium mouth, roast, caramel, bready malt, light finish, good.

Block (2375) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 4, 2016
This is a pretty nice brown ale. Malty and sweet. Not too heavy. Pretty smooth with a crisp finish.
