Draft at the brewpub from notes. Pours a clear amber brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, caramel, mild nutty character, some earthy notes, a very basic brown. b3shine (9019) - Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2015
Draft to taster at the Bloomington brewpub. Looks solid; a transparent lighter copper with foamy, fizzy lighter beige head. Smells malty with notes of chocolate alongside mild notes of toast and bitterness. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. A solid brown ale. edgallow (4312) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 3, 2015

12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass, showing a hazed, amber brown color, with a tan, froth & bubbles head, and good cling to the patchy lacing. The aroma was an expressive nose of toasted, near roasted nature, nuts, cocoa, toffee, and caramel. The aroma notes only mildly transferred to the taste, as it was dominated by a potent, dry, woody, & earthy hop bitterness, with a medium body, decent carbonation, and fair malt backing. The dryness & bitterness took away some of the sessionability as they finished strong into the finish. A hop centric, hearty Brown. geeklimit (293) - USA - MAR 13, 2014

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2014 on tap @ Drake’s / Florence KY Clear mahogany with a thin head cover, curtain of lace. Taste is malt with brown sugar and hazelnut. Moves through the palate without incident before allowing a touch of bittering in the finish. Fair, but not one of Upland’s best. Re-rating to add place. phaleslu (10461) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Draft served in a pint glass at Olives. Pours a clear reddish-amber-brown with a small beige head. Not much to the aroma or flavor; some toasted and caramel malts, dry leaves, grass, a bit of fruit, and the nuts are really light and in the background. Not a nut/toast-forward brown ale at all. Light-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation a and a thin, smooth, earthy mouthfeel. Drinks easy. Underwhelming.
