Sweetish brown ale, thin in body, sweetness in finish. didnít wow me didnít dissapoint really. umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Pours a dark copper color with a small amount of head that fades quickly. Aroma is fairly faint, light fruitiness and citrus with a touch of nuts and chocolate. Taste is ok. Oranges and flowers mostly. Not getting much of a brown ale taste except for a slight nuttiness. Finish has a slight tart taste, kinda odd. This beer is just ok.

Pours dark cloudy brown with not much head. Smells of booze, roasted grain, hops. Taste is pretty harsh, and I am not sure what they were going for here. Heavy burnt booze flavor. Not a fan.

Brown with a light tan head and a touch of lace. Chocolate, coffee aroma with some esters. Solid earth tones in the flavor. Paired well with the Apple stuffed chicken for dinner. madmitch76 (24360) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2012

Cloudy brown beer, tidy off white head. Softish dry palate. Sweet malt, almost milky. Minerals lead to citrus hops with a trailing edge of spicy pine. Finishes slightly dry. An unusual Brown Ale but very very drinkable!
Brown, amber pour with a thin head. Fruity, raisiny, with a little floral and grassy character. Itís good, but a little bit too sweet for my liking. Huhzubendah (3705) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Thanks for the beer, Adam.
A: brown, moderate head and lace
S: both hops and malt are strong in the nose. very interesting and intriguing, cocoa
T: Nice hop flavor up front, an enjoyable sweetness, slight chocolate aftertaste. The hoppiness and maltiness together is strange and delightful. An odd brew, but well done. An interesting treat.
M: creamy with a nice carbonation level
D: a nice brew that Iíd be happy to have again. Gription79 (2886) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Beautiful amber/brown color. There are notes of toast, raisins, fruity/floral hops, slight woody character. A nice brown ale, a bit big for a warm day. b3shine (8795) - Indiana, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Bottle to snifter. Looks good; brown with some head and CO2. Smells decent; malty and hoppy. Tastes pretty good; much like it smells. Okay on the palate. Good, but not great. Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2012
Originally reviewed: 1/31/11. 12oz bottle poured into a chalice. Pours a dirty amber-brown with no head at all. Just a ring sits rests along the edge. This leaves some light lace behind. The nose is surprisingly citrusy. Big notes orange, pineapple, then the malts come through more with some brown sugar and faint breads. This smells like a standard Pale.
The mouth is light and carbonated well. This helps in drinkability quite. The flavors are different from standard Browns Iíve had. The citrus aspect carries over here as well, with flavors of lemon, orange and mild bitterness from the hops. The usual Brown characteristics are fleeting, if not absent. Some mild malty sweetness on the back end. This was a different take. I guess the more I have from these guys, the more I learn that they like to push the envelope a bit on the styles and ingredients. Iíd have it again, I guess, but not when Iím looking for a Brown Ale.
