drywallman (359) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2003
Respectable head. Good aroma, appearance, and palate of a brown ale. Smooth, easy drinking, a good session beer. Recommended

Fine taste. Strangely warming even when chilled. Good bottled alternative in the pub if fed up of bottled lagers. Best drunk by topping up small glass though.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JAN 8, 2003
Brown color, med. head out of bottle. A little too thin, flavors of nuts and coffee are slight but present. One of my favorite supermarket type beers.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JAN 5, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2005 re-rate, not as good as i once thought. Really sour, it may have been a bad batch, but maybe i just never noticed it before. Aroma was a big disappointment.

Ok colour, ok immediate flavour that soon goes. Nicer a bit warmer. Still as people say a good "supermarket" beer

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 7, 2003
Light armoa, some hops, nothing too complex. Malty hop like flavor and an unimpressive appearence. Went down slightly bitter with an overall good feeling. A little too underdeveloped for me.

tkaufman (128) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2003
Aroma has a touch of roasted malts and a little hops. Nice light brown/amber color with a decent head. Flavor is excellent with subtle chocolate, caramel, nuttiness, and hop bitterness on top of a solid malt background. Thin in the body for my liking though. A good standby for Buckeyes games on fall Saturdays.

daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - JAN 8, 2003
Another of those strange beers that I thought Id rated a long time ago. Dirty brown in color with a small head, flavors ard drab and boaring. Not worth the effort of trying again.

smooth clean taste with a nice nutty finnish
