beertholomeus (1750) - California, USA - MAR 6, 2013
UPDATED: APR 7, 2016 Pours rich copper color into a dimpled mug with a light tan 1" head, decent retention. Caramel and malty smell with some nuttiness. Caramel and malts are tasted first with a nutty dry finish. Medium body with a slight bitterness. Lively amount of carbonation. Overall, great brown ale that i will continue to buy.

Tasted by Cannery Row Beer Club. We found this one slightly above average for the genre. Cheers! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Antzrhere (99) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2016
500ml bottle, Bispham hotel, Blackpool. Pours chestnut brown. Taste is of chocolate, caramel, weak malt. I found this to be too fizzy, thin and neutral, and whilst drinkable, i was left feeling abit uninspired. Maybe it was an old bottle, and if it had been on tap i would have had a second.

aleigator (831) - GERMANY - OCT 17, 2016
Pours a glowing brown color with an eggshell colored, smooth head. Tastes of bready, earthy malts with a nice, subtle sweetness to it, revealing a toasty quality and bakers chocolate. Has a smooth medium carbonation with a soft, refreshing finish, showcasing a light, pleasantly malt defined beer. Tastes of bread, church candles and slightly chocolaty malts, which receive a good earth coating. Very rustic, yet smooth and a litte creamy on the tongue, this also features a nice toasty quality. Finishes clean and soft with a short, sweet malt peak among a watery quality. Pretty light, but well composed with a nice, bready malt profile.

caribou43 (714) - Lausanne and Lima, SWITZERLAND - SEP 24, 2016
I bought this bottle at drink of the world in Zrich. I drank it tonight. This beer is not bad, average. The taste is close to a German Bock. The body is brown and the foam is thin, average carbonation. The taste is a little smocked, dry malt, plum and discreet note of nuts at the final, a bit watery, some hop.

Blueshawk (451) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2016
- rot-braune Farbe mit leichter, schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - leichte Aromen nach Toffee, Nuss und etwas Drrobst - passende Carbonisierung - der Antrunk ist unaufgeregt mild - der Krper bleibt schlank, ohne ins wssrige abzugleiten - alle Aromen verbinden sich zu einem runden, gut trinkbaren Ale - im Abgang kommen die Bitterelemente etwas strker zur Geltung, was dann aber auch erstmals zu einer leichten Wssrigkeit fhrt Fazit: Gut trinkbares Ale, ohne Hhen und Tiefen
