COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not the same old brown ale you take to family dinners every year because “everyone will like it”, this beer is a bit more edgy. Containing the usual American Brown Ale ingredients: caramel malts, chocolate malt and American hop varieties, we add a few more bittering hops and a generous late hop addition that take the complexity of this beer to a new level. Expect a little more bitterness and a citrus finish in addition to a chocolaty, slightly roasted, medium bodied backbone.

DiarmaidBHK (6180) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2017
Draft at University Library cafe. Pours dark brown with a khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Citrus and roasted malt notes on the nose. Finished clean. Interesting take.

ajnepple (7567) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JUN 28, 2017
12 oz single bottle from Hy Vee Wine & Spirits - Council Bluffs (Madison Ave), purchased at room temperature. Clear reddish brown appearance with a small, lingering tan head and light lacing.. Aroma of cocoa, mild roast, chocolate malt, light caramel and light earthy hops. Similar flavor, adding mild hop bitterness and a light grainy sweetness. Light to medium body with a soft, slightly thin feel and a light dry finish. Interesting.

Tap sample at Great Nebraska Beer Fest. Pours brown, off white head. Aroma is roasty, nutty, brown sugar. Taste was sweet, creamy.

AirForceHops (8186) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 17, 2016
Draft at the source. Deep brown with lasting legs of lace. Aroma is nutty, mild earthy hops and hints of roast.

The flavor is the roast, nuts and light earthy hop for balance. The body is a tad fuller then I was guessing. This is a soild Classic example of the style, well made.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2016 A really decent brown ale. Medium bodied and really drinkable. Roasty and sweet. Tried with Jess at the Gridiron Garage in 2015. Tried again with Brandon and Monica at the brewery in 2016.

Marheb (6343) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2015
En fût chez El Bait: Des malts grillés affligés par une bonne astringence et une dose de raisins secs et de cassonade. Pas particulièrement mémorable.

ghostbeer (251) - Nebraska, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Overall, this beer is solid enough. I didn’t really expect too much and that is what I got. Not huge or complex but easy to drink with a good malty backbone. Sort of forgettable but not bad.

CanIHave4Beers (4273) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUL 1, 2013
On draught.
Pours a very dark reddish brown with a good medium sized thick head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is roasty with some over ripe fruit & some apple skin, kind of weird.... but not really bad.

The flavor is better, roasty with some earthy hop flavor... almost like an English style porter, fairly dry with light fruit and nutty notes.

The palate is just lively enough but not over carbonated.

I should note that I may have to revist this one, I’ve had this beer a bunch of times and this particular keg doesn’t seem as good as Keg Creek in general or this beer gets.
