(Bottle brew date 8/05) Pours a nice clear honey brown, nice biscuit head. Decent lacing. Brown sugar aroma. Bittering hops prevalent in taste and mouthfeel. Pleasant and smooth. Tastes fine but not remarkable, some brown sugar sweetness. Nice. Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - SEP 14, 2005
Bottle: Courtesy of Degarth via trade. Aroma is roasted nuts with some moderate caramel. Pours a real hazey amber with a small off-white head. Flavor is roasted nuts with some light caramel and a hint of sourness in the background. Finish has some flowery bitterness. A little watery and thin.

I did not like this beer. Had kind of a nasty taste to it, and I don’t mean sour/infected. SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - SEP 8, 2005

Burnt sienna with creamy off white head. Smells nutty and malty, some caramel malts as well. Taste is more of the same, mixed with some light hops. Medium bodied. Pleasantly surprised.

I really wanted to like this more than I did. In fact the flavors are quite good, I just felt this was a bit too watery. Hop and malt flavors are nice with a caramel bite this has. Besides the watery-ness it’s a pretty good brown. beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 8, 2005
Clear brown color with a thin offwhite head. Aroma of nuts and malt. Mild flavor of nuts and malt. Light body, watery texture, soft carbonation.
