A simple brown that doesn’t do anything spectacular. Huge white head, plain aroma of barley, simple taste of barley, yeast, and a nice surprise of a good bit of honey. Finishes smooth and lingering hop stays. Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - MAY 13, 2010
Nice brown colour tall foamy head. Aroma is very strong and yeasty and very hopy as well.. The flavour is great very hoppy and complex. it is floral and just bitter enough tastes like the pacific north west. This is a very cool beer. TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 13, 2010
Definite pungent hop aroma, which I wasn’t expecting. Almost like straight hop pellets. Not really any other smell. Smokey dark brown, almost golden brown, very hazy, but very clear as well. Decent head and good retention, good lacing. Thinnish on the palate, but the hops do linger. Pretty fine tasting beer, but it really is just hops and enogh malt to make it look good, a bit thin for my liking, but it isn’t offensive at all.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber brown with an averae sandy coloured head showing weak retention. Aroma of weak caramel and plastic. Flavour is weak caramel that is completely overwhelmed by nasty plastic/bandaid nastiness. Couldn’t finish it. Capa (3325) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2010
Clear brown with a cream colored head. Hoppy aroma for a brown. Citrus, grapefruit, some orange, light caramel malts, but they are there, and chocolate. Thinnish body, but not bad. Flavor has a stronger caramel malt note than the aroma implies. Citrus hops, toasted malt, and some grapefruit. Very bitter finish. I really like this beer but isn’t what I expect from a brown. Still, I drank gallons of this at the Isekadoya Nomihodai. Great stuff.

Thanks Presario. A rice beer with brown malts. Pours grapefruit colour with lotsa white head. A distinct barnyard, but not much of that in the taste. Leaves a lot of lace, the carbonation is there and it is drinkable this beer. Not a ot of mouthfeel. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 18, 2010
50cl bottle. Slight gusher out of the bottle, that yields giant, rocky beige head atop cloudy chestnut brown body. Aroma is medium sweet, sour cherry/wood, some lemon. Taste is medium sweet, nut, some cherry/sour, caramel, light chocolate, herbal/grassy. Light-medium body, light effervescence. Infected for sure, but fortunate to get Brett or something similar. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 17, 2009
Bottle. Rich foam on dark amber. Tiny carbonation bubbles that would make Molson proud. Dusty hop aroma implies something other than a standard Brown Ale. Light malt base. Dusty musty light airy beer with a rising sinus clearing hop presence. Alex420 (48) - Rome, ITALY - NOV 9, 2009
50clBott@ Mondial de la Biere Strasbourg.
Cheesy hoppy nose. Disappointing.
Light brown in color, more amber than brown. Plastic taste, harsh hops. Thin mouthfeel. Long unpleasant finish

Draught at McLaughlin’s, Kyoto. Clear brown - offwhite head. Nice hoppy, grass, resin, nutty, roasted, fresh hoppy, toasted, knækbrød (swedish flatbread). A bit like Mikkeller - Jackie Brown. Lovely.
