Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear reddish/copper with a thin beige head. Aromas of nutty malt, caramel, dough, and wet hay. The flavor is slightly sweet grass and caramel, a touch of bitter grass and hay, and some berry/prune in the aftertaste. Moderate carbonation. Blah.

For a cheaper beer this is actually a great seasonal. Beer has a good full after taste. You can taste the caramelized hopps. Good beer on a cold day. Makes good head and pours ok AirForceHops (7240) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 30, 2011
12 oz bottle got from LiteWait. Ruby brown in glass. Light thin head and it leaves very nice lacing in the snifter I used. Non-existent aroma and taste is mild. Very light malty taste with a hop finish. Smooth yet uninteresting. The flavor punch was left in the mud.

dark amber wood pour. Aroma is copper metallic notes, caramel malt, some slight roast. Mouthfeel is medium light. Flavor is again slightly metallic, some toasted caramel malt, a bit of bitterness at the finish. Boring.

Bottle from Capone’s. Pours mahogany, clear, with 1-fimger eggshell head. Nose is malty, red winey fruit, berries. Tastes very malty, with vinous fruit, cacao, some hops, and an overall sweetness with a pretty smooth finish. Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 21, 2011
Medium brown bodies with a moderate whitish head. Nutty, chewy malt profile. Mild, crisp, refreshing. Sessionable American brown ale. Crisp, concise, and delicious. bhensonb (15208) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Bottle from PCC market in Fremont, WA. Pours dark amber with a foamy beige head. Mild malt aroma. Light body. Light carb. Light flavor. But good flavor. Pretty much a light dark malt brown ale kind of flavor. None of the usual earthiness of a brown, but a nice flavor. Goes down real easy. In some ways the flavor suggests stout. Don’t know where that came from. Jkripp (141) - Washington, USA - JAN 14, 2011
Little to no smell. Appearance is a filtered redish-brown color. Taste is relatively plain, there is standard hops and malt. I find it amazing the alc percentage is so high compared to the taste. bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2011
Pours medium brown with a thin off-white head. Mild aroma of roasted malt and sweet caramel. Flavor is roasty and sweet with hints of malt, caramel, nuts, and a little chocolate. Thin bodied beer with plenty of carbonation. Not a bad brown ale though nothing special.
