Bottle. My bottle reads "Sprecher Pub Brown Ale." Pours a medium brown with a small fizzy off white head. Aroma and flavor are fairly sweet, not very nutty, some caramel, some fruity esters. Light palate. Fairly tasty and easy drinking -- i.e., a pub ale. alobar (3879) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2011
Pours a chestnut brown color with an aroma of nuts, hops, and a faint hint of fig. Some caramel, toasted malt and nuts in the flavor. Kind of bland and empty. One of the lesser quality beers from this brewer. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 15, 2011
Deep amber/brown pour with off white head. Aroma is light chocolate a bit of toasted malt. Sweet caramel and light chocolate. A bit thin and fizzy, but drinkable. crossovert (13727) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Watery brown ale, probably would be an okay session but ultimately not worth your time. nearbeer (5559) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 28, 2011
12 oz. Dark brown with a lasting meringue of foam. Nose of graham crackers, marshmallow, ash and earthy, green herbs. Taste is sweet cherry, ground corn, and a barely balancing finish of earthy spice and toasted nut shell. Light-medium body is watery, and a little fizzy. Very interesting take on the style, but just a bit too fruity sweet even with a sour-acidic and nearly mouth-puckering finish.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Aroma and flavor is fruit/berries and mild nutty notes. Decent enough brown ale. bpreo (2903) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JAN 8, 2011
I drank it quick, so I didn’t get much of a chance to enjoy it, but it was good. Suttree (6484) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 8, 2011
As "Sprecher Pub Brown Ale". Pours brown with an off white head. Aroma of...Brown ale. Flavor of...Brown ale. It’s the Brownest ale of ALL! dekester1 (369) - Town of Maple Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2010
On tap @ Sprecher. Nice mid-brown dark appearance with a decent head and later lace. Aroma was of lightly sweet malt and light hops. Taste was also of malts with a slight burnt hue and a nice smooth lightly hopped finish. Good mouthfeel. Overall, a nice brown ale that I will likely re-visit sometime in the future.
