5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle:   For a Brown Ale it sure is light, more of a ruby colored burnt orange.   Large frothy off-
white head, spotty lacing.   Malty nose, very earthy.   Faint coffee grounds and cow pasture.
Earthy/soily malts on the tongue, minor sweetness, low bitterness.   Touch of nutiness, a smidgen of cocoa and
coffee.   Body and mouthfeel are decent.   Could stand to be a little bit more viscous tho.   Lingering
earthy malts.   Tiz okay, but the slight cow pasture on the nose sorta puts me off.   I also wished the body
was a bit fuller, richer malts.   Then we’d have a nice thick Brown for the Autumn months. imdownthepub (15160) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2011
Bottled, 350ml from Favourite Beers, Cheltenham. Brown to ruby with very short lived head. Smooth malty and quite sweet beer, some fruitiness, berries, plummy with a hint of red wine, grapes, but mostly just sweetly smooth. Hints of hop in the close. Average beer. yngwie (17185) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 10, 2011
Bottle, at Ølbaren. A dark golden to amber beer, topped by a dense, off-white head leaving lacings. Slightly vegetal on the nose, with roasted malts and caramel dominating. Roasted, caramel flavor with some dried fruits. Medium to full body, quite dry. Nutty, caramel finish. Not much bad going on here, but as so many brown ales, it’s rather boring, lacking depth and failing to raise interest with me. 110527 wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2011
Draught, Port Street Beer House, Manchester. Dark amber looks with a small lingering tan head. Caramel malts, earth, nuts and vague hop featured in the nose. Flavour had some restrained hoppage and was largely malt driven .Ok but not my favourite offering from SN. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2011

Bottle. Old rating. Color is ruby borwon with good sized off white head. and some lacing. Malt forward nose with some earthiness and coffee. Taste is same earthy malts with some nutiness and touches of coffee and cocoa. Low bitterness. Not bad for a style that I typically bypass. However, enjoyable for a fall late afternoon.

Clear brown (!) with lasting beige head.
Brown ale like with caramel malt and a little hops.
Confirms that brown ale is a mistake...
Boring. PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2012
12 oz. Draft before MMJ concert. Slight molasses scent, kind of one dimensional. Dark brown pour, small head, pretty beer. Light body, crisp finishing. Dark bread crust, citrus touch on finish. Ericular (1036) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Dark, roasty malts with a little chocolate and some coffee. I don’t like coffee flavor in a beer, so for this to be rated so well shows it was balanced or subtle enough to be enjoyable. The right amount of flavor and carbonation seem fitting for a cool fall day. Very good aftertaste for a roasty beer, in that it’s not too bitter or long-lived.
