It was what I expect in a brown ale! The deep earthiness of the malts gave this a very satisfying flavor and mouthfeel. ChainGangGuy (4919) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - FEB 9, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, medium brown body with a frothy, off-white head.
Smell: Toasted breadcrusts, nuts, and some chocolate shavings. Light English hop notes.
Taste: Sweet, toasty Munich malts with a light nuttiness and touch of chocolate. Very, very light bitterness. Toasted caramel in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Pleasant, easy drinking from this brown ale. I’d have drank more than one if I didn’t only have the one bottle. Oh well! n49921 (108) - USA - MAR 9, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark amber, with a really nice bsicut aroma. Taste is a bit malty, but ends with that nice dry taste. A really nice brown ale. Gmku (303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 8, 2005
Brownish body, tan head. Caramel malt aroma, bready/cookie-ish flavor/aroma. Sweet. Likeable. dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2008
Bottle. Pours copper/brown, with a generous tan head that fades to a half-inch. Sweet malty aroma, with obvious caramel and vanilla leaves me anticipating this beer. The taste doesn’t disappoint. Very sweet, with a chocolate, caramel and vanilla flavor that reminds me of a cream soda. Very impressive for such a sweet beer. It balances a sweetness with a fizzy, live mouth feel.

I’m really surprised by the overall low rating this beer has received. While it’s not as "dark tasting" as I was expecting it did deliver on taste, appearance and flavor. Part of my beer a month selection this is better than the Otter Creek Pale Ale I rated earlier today. I’d drink this again. It had a nice aroma, a sweet chocolate cherry taste, good carbonation ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - NOV 16, 2002
This beer was one of the 12 beers featured in a beer tasting event I hosted back in April. The avg. rating among the 10 participants was 7.1 out of 10 (my rating was a 7 out of 10). Not having started rating beers using the ratebeer method and scale at that point, I just had another opportunity to do so. Heavy malt and moderate hop aroma. Avg. sized, creamy, off-white head which mostly diminishes. Murky, reddish-brown body. Flavor is heavy malt in the initial moutfeel with moderate bitter notes becoming apparent as it warms. Long in duration, medium to full bodied. Very tasty. Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2003
Dark amber color,small lifeless head that faded fast.Malty sweet caramel aroma.Light malt taste but this brew is heavy on the sweet,sweet creamy caramel,very light hops that don't really seem to come through until the brew warms a bit.the after taste is caramel in a big way,sweet and creamy like a hot caramel roll in the morning.This is a bit one sided for a brew,but i'm a big caramel nut so i will have to go a little extra on the numbers just for the taste. ericnixon (746) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 2, 2004
Nice brownish amber color with a brownish aroma. Slightly fizzy mouthfeel that accompanied a light malty taste. arjoseph (642) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2005
On tap at the brewery tasting room. 5 oz. glass. Clear golden brown with a yellow tan head. Caramel malt aroma with some cookie and bread, smells really good. Very flavorful for the light body. Nutty, somewhat like cornbread, malty sweet. Some low level acidity balances the sweetness. The hops are very soft and somewhat spicy. The nuttiness intensifies in the beginning of the finish. Very fresh grainy flavors in the beginning. I thought this was very good, much better than the overall rating suggests. It’s not going to win any awards, but it is among the best simply quaffable, unambitious beers I’ve had.
