On tap at the Anniversary Party. Poured deep brown with a nice smoky head. The aroma picked up nutty notes and caramel, with spicy herbal hop accents. The flavor found a little chocolate to go with the nutty notes.. bitter cocoa and herbal notes on the edges.. fresh hop kick joined the lightly-smoked malts on the dry finish. Lighter-bodied and well-balanced on the palate.. very drinkable. Headbanger (3999) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2008
12oz bottle(4/04)-A brownish amber body with a small head and an aroma of sweetness, malt, and caramel. Taste of the same with a little nutty taste thrown in. Nice brew. RSRIZZO (1986) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2007
Had this beer on 4/23/2003. Aroma is sweet malt scent. Color is a hazy amber with good carbonation and thin head. Taste sweet and malty. Starting with a medium body it goes down slightly sharp. Nice Brown Ale.

Brown/Gold Coloring with White Sandy Head. Nutty Dry Aroma. Creamy Dry Malt Mouthfeel. Lightly Nutty Througout. Dry Roasts Aftertaste. badgerben (5181) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 28, 2005
Brown color with a medium head. Light malt aroma. Some nut flavors, but kind of a mold/cardboard finish, and I don’t think it’s an old bottle. Thin.

Red brown with good head production. Something slighty spicy is there underneath the sweet front and malty caramel palate. Slight wet paper note. Thin palate. A "McBeer" as Adam aptly put it. Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - OCT 21, 2004
Bottle. Astringent malty nose. Usual brown ale flavor. Nothing shocking or impressive with this one. Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 4, 2004
THis brown ale pours with an amber body topped by a thin fizzy head with little lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet but bitter, nutty and slightly salty with a very slight roasty note. The flavor is very similar to the aroma with a bitter finish. Not anything out of the ordinary. Medium bodied, smooth and slightly dry. jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2004
On tap at brewery. A light brown beer with a nice off-white head that holds up. No real aroma. Flavor of some faint malt that is overpowered by a odd chili flavor that I assume is from the hops. Really detracts from what otherwise seems to be a well made beer. Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - JUL 14, 2004
Deep red-brown body, clear, with an initially medium light tan head that dissipates quickly. Nice brown sugar, caramel, nutty aroma. Flavor is toasty, fruity and nutty with caramel, brown sugar, and red grape. Red wine/oaky finish is a bit too astringent. Light-medium bodied; this beer could be a tad heavier. Overall this is quite nice and a welcome treat. It’s been awhile since I tried a new brown ale.
