Deep Dark Roasted grains meet thick layers of caramel, malt and vanilla. Hop bitterness is the backdrop. Thin mouthfeel makes this beer more ordinary but I still believe this Brown Ale is underrated on this site.
I liked this beer a lot. Wasn’t anything to write home about, but a very good overall beer, especially if looking for a "lighter" dark beer. Appears a medium-dark brown, a little darker than amber, but has a thin density. Not very syrupy at all like some of the other brown ales or honey beers. Still has a good sweet taste like caramel and malts...very little hops in the flavor but just enough to notice. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 6, 2014

On tap @ Black Bottle. Pours a clear, reddish copper appearance with a tan head. Bland, caramel, nutty, herbal aroma. Thin. A touch fruity, caramel, slight brown sugar, earthy flavor. Not bad but it is boring. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Taster at Party Town. Clear brown color. Thin khaki head. Good lace. Light to medium body. Smooth light carbonation. Easy drinking. Good chocolate, nuttiness, light dark fruit. Moderate sweet, minimal bitter, some metallic. Solid session brown. BrewBoxer (2632) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Draft at the growler NYC. Pours a deep brown color with a malty backbone and a nice easy drinking aftertaste. Nothing special though

On tap at Tapwerks. Pours a clear brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of bread and grains with a bit of toast. Flavor starts with bread and toast that last throughout the beer. ads135 (4587) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 21, 2013
This is one of the more uninteresting left hand beers. Toasty and nutty, but underwhelmingly so. Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - NOV 18, 2013
12/18/2009. From bottle. Dark amber color with a tan head. Caramel, malt and syrupy aromas. Sweet malty flavors, some earthiness and caramel. onceblind (9413) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Clear nutty amber with a thin foamy off-white head. The aroma is as if someone took nutty and toasty malt and made it into a girls perfume. The flavor is really light and clean, perhaps too much so. Taste has some earthy toast and a wee bit of nuttiness. Semi-dry and light. dnstone (3385) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Honey nose. Brownish-amber in color. Super light bodied, almost watery.
