Rich aroma sits sweet in the ol' probascis(served in a tulip glass ... everything else was dirty). Nice dark color. Thin maltiness and a little overly hopped for a nut brown. Still, I enjoyed drinking this beer. I would love to try it on tap. A nice way to welcome in cool fall weather. fisher99 (6) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - AUG 17, 2002 does not count
Not much carbonation, sweet malty flavor. .................................. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 15, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2007 One of the best American made English Brown Ales I’ve had. Deep maltiness and a great aroma bring out the nut flavor. There definitely aren’t any hex nuts floating in there either, but that’s good. Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2002
This beer poured a dark reddish amber color and formed a light tan head that subsided quickly and left some lace. It had an aroma of hops, caramel and malt. The flavor was of malt and caramel. The finish was medium, slightly creamy with a defininate caramel aftertaste. Not as good as some of their others, but still a good beer.

A light bodied brown ale. Has a caramel colored look. OK aroma with a sweet-syrupy smell. Thin on the palate, but there is a definite roasted/smoked flavor lurking in there. Nothing amazing about this beer, but easy to drink.

A sweet brown ale. Too sweet. Nothing special............................... brownalegirl (199) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2002
Nice nose. The aftertaste reminds me of vodka, something I'm not sure I like, after those Russian class picnics in college ... AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUN 5, 2002
Big head, quite dark with only a trace of light coming through. Nice candylike taste, sweet, hints of roastiness in the nose that seem to disappear soon after the pour. Best brew of theirs that I've had. austinpowers (2832) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 2, 2002
Just beaten by Newcastle (by a nose). Otherwise, a decent inoffensive brown. This underachieving brewery has found its best beer. hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - MAY 25, 2002
Rather delicate for a brown ale - very pretty with good healthy color and fine lacing, but the mild nuttiness doesn't get all the way there.
