UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [bottle] Deep red color with thin white head. Not much of a distinctive aroma. Good crisp taste with little bitterness or aftertaste. Very easy to drink and very tasty. monkeycmdr (18) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2004
Nothing particularly complex going on with this brew, but it's a solid beer, and it's often the best thing on tap, and brown ales are my favorite style. It has a nice color, which is probably its best feature; it's very drinkable and tastes good, although it's nothing spectacular, and the nose is nothing special either. A good solid beer, much better than most macros, but not world-class by any stretch. IDogg (72) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2004 A wonderful beer that is great and different. Nice brown orange color with a good but not outstanding aroma. Taste is excellent, sweet and malty. Good strong aftertaste. A personal favorite of mine. Foxbush (2046) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 11, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2004 Normal head formation but did not remain no lacing down the glass. Color was a deep amber that was very inviting. Taste was not malty or hoppy. It just was not very impressive. This was my second bottle and it was not very good. sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 5, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2004 Nice dark ruby color with almost no head. Aromatic, nutty, hoppy aroma. Woody and nutty, sweetish, caramel-malty flavor. Oily, a bit thin palate with moderate carbonation. Some bitterness in the finish, and a mild, slightly nutty and oily aftertaste. A decent brown ale, but doesn't have much character.

Licorice arona. Brown, reasobale body but think. Sweet finish. Malt taste. SpringsLicker (3644) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2004
This beer has been sinking in my ratings as I have had more brown ales. Somewhat thin but very unadventuresome for a brown ale. Average. scoobyluv (511) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 31, 2003
brownish in color. does have a faint caramel taste. tastes a lot better when mixed with guiness in a blackcastle. mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Dark Copper in color. Very malty beer. Pleasant. It was all that was on tap that was different from what I drink so I got it. It was pleasant. Not a bad beer. Caramel flavor. MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2003
Almost brown, with a slight head. Low ester aroma with a slight licorice note. Malty carmel flavor with a slight chocolate finish. Basically bland, yet drinkable en mass if necessary.
