CEZ (414) - Milano, ITALY - MAR 16, 2004
Nice orange body with a fizzy, medium-sized head, mostly lasting. Hazelnuts, caramel and malt in the aroma. Sweet, smooth, balanced and drinkable, but flavors are rather bland and palate is thin. I even seemed to detect some alcohol (?) in the taste. Not a bad beer, but one that fails to live up to its fame.

nice beer, a little on the expensive side. good for all you folks who are looking to cathch a "buzz"and don't like the mainstream stuff like bud. lacks any type of bite. very light on flavor so you can consume fairly fast. very little bitterness for a brown. i recommend,ENJOY!

antisnobJP (275) - St. Michael, Minnesota, USA - MAR 14, 2004
On tap. Amber brown beer with a small, creamy head. Thin ring of lace lasts through most of the way. Smells of sweet malt. Tastes of sweet malt with a little nuttiness to it. Hops barely discernable. Just an easy drinking, sweet, simple ale lacking the character of others but very drinkable. Attracts a premium price at the bar, making you expect more. Didn't bother to rate in bottle, as I have had some bad luck with those.

One of the beers that starting me to stray away from BMC. Trying it now, it is a little lacking. Fruity aroma and flavor with a slight toasty/nuttiness. Very lightly hopped.

Another one of the old reliable go to beers. Some what flat look and mouthfeel. Nose is light malty and sweet. Flavor is a bit overly sweet. It does have a kind of nuttiness to it. Not the best not the worst but always there.

little cabonation and a tan hue deliver a quality sweet tasting ale, i prefer over bud and miller products

balke13 (156) - MIssoula, Montana, USA - MAR 3, 2004
deep amber color with a fairly thick white head. sweet malty aroma with a medium body and malty flavors with a hint of anise, smooth finish. good macro...quite drinkable but pretty mild, not very complex.

swiseman (523) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAR 1, 2004
This a very smooth, dark ale. distinct sweet malt taste. only thing I didn't like was that it may be a tad too sweet.

3.3
DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - FEB 29, 2004
This is a good beer, somewhat plain or straightforward, but with a reliable palate and generally easy to come by. I actually drink this pretty often, especially in places with a not-so-wide beer selection (places such as these are prominent in the Birmingham area).

I thought this beer went down smooth with no aftertaste. Too watery to be considered a great brown ale, but pleasant to drink
