Medium amber pour with a tan head. The aroma and flavor have a lot of toffee and tea character, with the flavor also having a hint of grass and earth. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Theydon_Bois (20877) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2013
Tap at Laurelwood, PDX, 25/05/13. Dogbrick (13978) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Clear chestnut brown with a thin beige head.
Nose is malt forward, biscuit, toffee.
Taste comprises dark malts, sugars, biscuit.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light bitter notes in the finish.
Average brown stuff - like most amber brown stuff tends to be !
The classic ’W’ formation was attained, I was thus ’whelmed’!
Sample from firkin at the 6th Annual Rogue Firkin Fest at Green Dragon. The beer is a reddish-brown color with a medium light beige head that dissipates slowly. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of chocolate malt, nuts and a bit of citrusy hops. The finish is sweet with a roasty malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

On tap @ brewpub, airport location. Deep russet brown, thick off-white head. Aroma is nicely toasty bready malt. Malty, bready flavours with an earthy bitter finish. Despite the description, there is more than a hint of hops here. Very nice. KyotoLefty (10721) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 31, 2012

Draught at the Brewpub. Orange-brown color. Light fruit in the nose, mostly soft caramel. Malty flavor of chocolate-cocoa, caramel, nuts. Nice earthy hop finish.
This brow is a tad more bitter than expected. The taste is more appealing than the palate considering the lingering nutty aftertaste. Overall a good brown and brewed well.

(22oz bottle) Pours a clear amber-brown body with a medium beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, nuts, light citrus, and brown sugar. Flavor of chocolate, roasted malt, and caramel. SeattleRunner (8) - - DEC 31, 2011 does not count
This beer came across as way too sweet and with too much fruit, both on the nose and the taste. A little watery, and completely forgettable. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Bottle: Not very dark for a Brown Ale, moreso a dark caramel, and even that is a stretch. Moderate to large frothy tannish head, spotty lacing. Also hazy with defnite chunks floating about. Pale roasted malts, seems more toasty. Faint caramel and biscuit. Smooth on the tongue. Almost seems like an Amber Brown or sorts. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Backside shows a very shallow hop aspect and minor nuttiness. I was thinking this was going to be bigger, but regardless its still enjoyable. Very soft and easy to drink.

Pours a cloudy nutty brown with frothy tan head. Aroma is nutty almond, caramel, bread and subtle notes of raisin. Flavor is a mix of subtle chocolate, hazelnut, hay and floral tones. Body is creamy yet light with active carbonation.
