Thanks Vanessa. This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a fairly dark brown color with a thin almond colored foamy head. Light speckled lace. The aroma had a good rich sweet to roasty nuttiness bold and up front with a balancing caramel/toffee malt backbone. Light earthiness. The flavor blended the nuts to the malts fairly nice, sweet and roasty. Earthiness was somewhat light. Nice aftertaste of nuts and malts. Clean roasty to sweet finish. The feel was about medium bodied with a decent sessionability about it. Good carbonation and the ABV felt as suggested. Overall, whatever government standards Great River was supposed to meet for this to be organic, I guess they did, but for a brown ale fan like myself, Id still have this again.

Sampled at the brewery. Darker brown with a beige layer. Rich brown malts are tasted first. They are earthy and grainy. Mild nuts. Just a little hop spice and bitterness.

On tap. Pours a deep mahogany color with a tan head and spotty lacing. Aroma of malt, dark fruit and nuts. Taste of roasted malt sweetness, bit of nut and trace of coffee. Nominal bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, smooth with a nice malty character.

From my dear brother: Pours a dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is chocolate and nuts. Taste is a bit sweet. Low bitterness in general. Rather smooth. Generally pretty simple. Not a bad beer though.

Deep brown with chestnut accents and a light tan head. Chocolate, light roasted malts, a bit of caramel, espresso, some background fruitiness. Relatively thin body. Flavor is heavier on the roasted malt and chocolate with light sweet fruit. A solid brown ale but would be improved by a fuller body. Good beer, though.

Can. A nice brown ale. Pours dark brown with very little head. Nose is caramel. Taste is caramel and roast. A little thin in the mouthfeel but good.

Very nice brown ale! Served in a can from Johns Grocery. Good color with malty flavor. Would certainly drink again.

can @ Johns Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Clear dark ruby brown color, brown head cover, bits and pieces of lace. Aroma of robust malt, quite appealing. Taste is hazelnutty caramel malt. It moves without incident through the palate to a finish that hardly needs bittering. Not complex, not nearly as interesting as I had hoped. Fair.
