Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a deep amber/copper color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma is caramel malt, grass with a lightly toasted bread note. The flavor was lightly toasted bread that had been soaked in a caramel sauce, mild herbal notes like a green tea and grass. Nothing really stood out and I would list this as worth trying once.

Soft carbonation. Medium body. Dry finish. Bitter taste. Interesting stuff b3shine (8940) - Indiana, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a transparent copper with off-white lacing. Smells solid; semi-sweet and toasted malt. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A good example of the style. jmikolich (1477) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2012
tap at Lizardville RR not sure what i’m after here, its a basic malty bread type beverage with a clean finish, not offensive in the least but not worth seeking out. jsquire (4525) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Clear copper out of the tap with a sticky, foamy tan head. Light malty nose. Sweet beer with lots of caramel and rock candy, with nice roasted grain, tea, toast and grassy hops. There is a little sour something in the back, but overall a very easy drinking beer. Better than the actual Cleveland Browns...

Draught sample at the Cleveland International Beer Fest on 5/14/11. Clear brown pour with a medium off-white head. Malty and caramelly nose with some crisp hops. Malty flavor with some caramelly and cereal character before a crisp hop finish. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2011
This poured a nice medium brown color with an off white head. Aroma was light brown sugar, nuts, caramel, and toasted malts. Flavor was very nice simple and smooth, the pinnacle of a brown ale, medium toasted malt characters, some roasted nuts, and caramel sweetness. Very well done.

On tap at Crunchy’s, East Lansing. Murky medium brown to brown-orange body, thin tight cream head. Sweet nose with notes of toast and brown sugar. Complex body with floral, burnt leaves hops balanced by sweet, nutty, toasty malts. Finishes leafy and bitter. Pretty good. AwYeh (102) - Canton, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2010
Poured a clear brown color, one finger of light brown head. Smell was of caramel and brown sugar. Tasted similarly, sweet malts all over the place on this one with a bit of nuttiness. Bordering on cloying, but check it out if you like sweet brown ales.
