Half liter bottle from Ale Yeah, Roswell. Pours a clear dark red color with a medium sized foamy light brown head. Good head retention. Aroma of floral, citrus hops, a soapy note and faint pale malts. The taste is brown malts, nuts, citrus hops, caramel and a faint bit of smoke. Medium bodied. Interesting. deyholla (12803) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle thanks to Secret Santa! Pours a clear deep amber with a brown hue and a grayish brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a decent amount of nuttiness supported by grain and bread notes. Flavor begins starts with bread and nuttiness and has a slight growing sweetness through the finish. douglas88 (9891) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 1, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a medium white head. A nose full of brown malt and citrus hops. A big hoppy brew with bitterness at times, metallic, caramel, dusty malts. Pretty good, a bit inharmonious.

16.9 oz bottle to snifter (shared by mikem409). Looks solid; more like an amber though. A mostly transparent amberish-brown with thin off-white lacing. Smells of hops and caramel malt. Tastes like it smells with a thin mouthfeel. Okay, but more of an Amber than a Brown Ale. 3fourths (9386) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2016 From bottle it’s clear brown with a lasting tall head. Aroma seems tainted by American hops, making it smell of grapefruit, brined cherry, resin, marzipan, fruit cake, even cayenne powder. Medium bodied with light sweetness and moderate bitterness. Decent savoriness across the middle and into a lengthy finish, where more dusty bread crust notes emerge. It’s a shame that character is hidden in the nose, because the malt base seems sounds here. But it seems too affected by misplaced new world hops, which begin to take on a cedar shaving and pet pee odor. Ibrew2or3 (9047) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Picked up at the State store in Riverton where the cool looking 50cl bottle pours with a clear brown body that has copper hues and supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up a decent mix of malts and roasted malts and a dash of biscuit malts and nuttiness. The taste delivers sweet malts, roasted malts, nuttiness and then a bit of drying roasted malt astringency. To midway a mix of mineral water, a spice note and then slivers of ripe cherry dark fruity esters surface and help take this to the finish. Decent. Sledutah (8127) - Utah, USA - OCT 1, 2012
