Brown with off white head - Malt aroma with hints of sweetnass - Good malt body - Malt goes into the finish - This was ok JorisPPattyn (10026) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 10, 2012
Draught Little head left, reddish cola-coloured beer. Nutty, indeed, hazelnut chocolade, and dark green leaves. Cola light? Sweetish and again green leaves. Light, rather watery. Too sweet and too light really. User134089 (1644) - - AUG 23, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2011 Poured from a tap into a pint glass at San Diego Brewing Company in San Diego, Calif. Color was dark brown. Light on the film on the sides of the glass, heavy on the lacing on top of the beer.
Smelled with hints of nuts, malts, coffee, caramel and chocolate.
Decent taste. Flavors included nuts, caramel and toffee. Fairly smooth beer.
High carbonation. Small feel of cream soda on the tongue.
Not a bad beer overall. I’d order it again. Nutty would best describe the beer.

Draft. A deep red beer with at thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and nuts as well as lighter notes of caramel. JohnnyJ (5570) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 18, 2010
On tap at SDBC. Clear light brown pour, almost amber, off-white head. Lightly roasted malt, caramel, kind of sweet, light in the nut department. Just a light brown ale, nothing special. brokensail (16486) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 15, 2010
A: The pour is a dark amber color bordering on brown with very little in terms of head.
S: The nose is sweet with a bit of nuttiness, but not quite as much as you might expect. Good caramel notes along with some toffee.
T: The flavor seems a bit off, perhaps a touch sour. Otherwise, however, mediocre brown ale flavors at best: bit of caramel, toasted malt, nuts, and toffee.
M: The body is medium and there’s a slightly creamy feel on the tongue.
D: The sourness in the flavor really threw me off and sort of drug the overall impression of the beer down. I don’t think this would be an amazing brown ale either way, but certainly a bit better. Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 7, 2010
On tap at the SD Brewing Co. No head, light lace. Nose is very light. Nuts and roast malt. Taste is very light too. Sweet with bitterness of roasted malt behind.
