Poured into a mug, the appearance was a milk brown color with a thick white foamy head that dissipated at a decent pace. Some light stringy lace.
The aroma had some soft sweet nuts, nice smooth sweet malty/breadiness. And just a tickle of caramel at the end. Light milk chocolate. Light on the grassy hops.
The flavor leads with a sweet blend of nuts to bready malts and balancing in the hops ever so slightly. Mostly sweet aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Sly carbonation. ABV felt appropriately done right by the brewer.
Overall, nicely done brown ale worthy of having again, preferably as a dessert beer and in either mid Spring or mid Autumn. pianotu (69) - USA - MAY 27, 2013
A bit rough around the edges...yes, it's bold and more aggressive than an English brown ale, but gone are the smoothness and balance c

The aroma is nutty, sweet malts, bread. The appearnace is brown (duh!), with a tinge of red, white head. The flavor is sweet, caramel, brown sugar, nuts. The finih is citrusy hops. Medium mouthfeel. Very good brown Ale overall. fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Tap. Aroma of nuts, earthy hops, quite toasty. Flavor of sweet malt, earthy hops, doughy malt finish. Nice enough. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Pours a light copper brown with a thin head. Aroma is light nuttiness, doughy god burnt toast note and slight chocolate and some herbal hops. Malt is a bit bigger int he flavor- more toast, more earthy bready doughines nutty, and charred chocolate malt- solid brown ale.

On tap at Earth Bread + Brewery. Pours a light brown with a small white head. Aroma of sweet brown malt and roasted malt. Flavor of sweet molasses and sweet malt, some slight roast. Just ok for me.

Clear copper body with an off-white head. Smell and taste are hoppy. Big and brown it is not. A decent beer, but not a brown. thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - NOV 29, 2008
Tap @ SPH. Pours a clear, deep brown with a frothy and lingering off-white head. Aroma is malt, wood notes, and very assertive hops. Taste is the same, with wood notes, dark fruit, and malt up front, dissolving into a wonderful complementary hop bitterness. It’s a very well-done and off-beat brown ale. beastiefan2k (4076) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Imperial pint @ the Ginger Man. Pours with a large, frothy head that sits on a dark, clear, brown body. Aroma is bark, bitter hops, and a slick maltiness. It all melds well, comes of as a hoppy English forest. Taste. is bitter, bark, prune, and hops. I got to talking with other RBians, so my notes end here. But I thought of this is a fine, slightly more hoppy, slightly stronger brown ale. Nothing to write home about but a damn fine beer.
