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. stef92 (128) - Williamstown, New Jersey, USA - AUG 8, 2005
Nice aromatic brown ale. moderate brown color w/ creamy head. Nutty, chocolately taste. Very smooth with nice hoppy balance. Would definitely recommend. duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2005
Cask@GBBF 05’. Not too bad, malty and sweetish to start. Nutty for sure, with touches of caramel. Some aroamtic hops in the finish give it another dimension. Some subtle lychee. A very pleasant brown ale, in the American style. DanielBrown (4520) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2005
On tap at GBBF ’05. A bit warm and flat looking by the time I arrived, but even so. Nice enough nutty ale. Some warm choc, with a little bit of sweet hop to finish. Alright.

Draught @ GBBF 2005: Dark amber coloured. Light brown head. Caramel and flowers in the aroma. Flarvour is floral, hoppy and herbal. Has a somewhat dusty bitterness in the end. Is quite fresh. Me like. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2005
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense GBBF 2005. A muddy mid brown coloured beer with some caramel and good US hop on the nose. The taste is fruity nutty and hoppy. Definitely a US brown and quite drinkable. harrisoni (18817) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2005

Mid brown colour, some caramel malt and some good hop. This is a pretty good example of this style of beer. ABUSEDGOAT (2770) - California, USA - AUG 4, 2005
Continuing my dog beer spree. Pours a fairly clear (but not NewCastle clear) brown body with a nice head. Aroma is mostly nutty but also earthy. Flavor is nutty with caramel. Finishes sweet with minimal hop bitterness. Solid. FROTHINGSLOSH (7879) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2011 A solid basic brown ale that I get a case of now and then as a change of pace. +++Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer pours a moderately dark brown color with orange highlights and a medium sized foamy tan head that leaves minimal lacing. The aroma is light sweet dark malts and a bit of spicy and fruity hops. The flavor is dryish and tangy toasted caramel with faint vague fruits and a touch of wood. The finish is long, dry and has a hint of hops. Medium body. Solid.
