Draft sample at the source. The beer is a lenbrown with a beige head of foam. The aroma has mild roast, honey, and caramel. Medium sweetness throughout. Medium carbonation and lighter body. shadey (2136) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 30, 2015
5oz sample from honeymoon. Reddish, brownish pour. Minimal head. I put this more in the swarzbier category than an American brown. Lightly malty and thin. No hop character. Very little carbonation. The brewery has good control over the product here, but I just don’t know that I’m excited to drink it. freekyp (2257) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Pours clear light chestnut brown with a wispy ring of tan head. Softly carbonated with a pillowy mouthfeel and muted earthy aroma. Off-putting sewery notes prevail. geologyguy (1604) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - SEP 23, 2015
Light malty smell, very slightly reddish...taste is malty...no hops, very smooth...medium strength good not watery! radagast83 (8074) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - SEP 23, 2015
5oz on tap at Smoky Mountain in Gatlinburg. Poured a dark brown, cola color. Aroma had some very mild notes of chestnut, toasted malts. Maybe some light nutmeg notes? Certainly not actually that, but something kicked off my tastebuds to that. Okay.

Well I liked for the style. Plenty of syrupy malts and roasted caramel. amber color and a fair light head Theydon_Bois (19546) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2015
Keg at Smoky Mountain Turkey Creek, 16/02/15.
Amber topped with a moderate off white swirl,
Nose carries sweet tunes, caramel, candied nuts.
Taste comprises caramel, biscuit, sweet licks.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
So so generic brewpub brown ... yawn. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2015
5oz on tap at Smoky Mountain in Gatlinburg. Amber color. Minimal ring of white head. Caramel malt, breadiness, that’s it. Bigger sweet taste, no bitter balance. Corn again. Medium body. Little to no carbonation. Kind of slick. Another malty sweet pseudo-amber ale, tastes hardly different from the red ale. nathan30533 (1020) - Clifton, Ohio, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Upon reading the description of this beer you will think that it’s going to come out a little darker and actually brown. Though drinkable it’s just too malty and not dark enough. aracauna (3609) - Georgia, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Mellow malt nuttiness, but not as bold as the amber. Very mellow, lighter flavor.
