Appearance: nice looking dark brown color with a lot of lacing
Aroma: nutty and bread aroma
Taste: medium bitterness with a little coffee favor
Palate: slick and thin on the tongue. finish is bitter but fades quickly
Overall: a good lager that goes down nicely. very refreshing. chicagobears (482) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2010
Pours a dark brown. Toasted malts in the aroma. The taste has a smokey wood, cereal, and bitter hop flavor. The lager is smooth and highly drinkable. This is better than I was expecting cause of the low ratings. the smokiness of this beer gives it a unique character. nuplastikk (6514) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 31, 2008
12oz bottle. Minimal, non-offensive odor. Deep brown chestnut color. Not quite opaque, but pretty close. Mellow dark malt flavors with a smooth sugary finish. Mild hop balancing, no real stand out characteristics. Very easy drinking with a pleasant body. Not as good as the Nut Brown Ale, hopefully not a replacement. guzzler67 (1696) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Dark brown appearance with a small beige head and a decent amount of lacing. Subtle, roasted malt aroma akin to a schwarzbier. Taste is caramel malts with moderate bitterness from the noble type hop profile. Medium bodied, nicely carbonated mouthfeel, with an average length finish. mar (5458) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2010
bottle thanks to exiled. poured a deep brown with a cream head. nose is lightly bitter, earthy malts, and a faint roastiness. thin on the palate, flavor is raosted malts, caramel, and not much else.

Pours a very dark brown color. Smell is of malts, a bit nutty. Taste is hops, nuts, a touch of malts. Overall a decent beer. That1Guy (2241) - Colorado, USA - NOV 21, 2008
When I saw "brown lager" I had no idea what to expect. Malty, brown sugar nose, and maybe a little poop. Flavor is very roasty, almost as if it were a brown ale. Finish has a weird woody resonance, that isn’t at all displeasing, just surprising. A monumental step above Shiner Bock. lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2009
Dark brown with a uick light tan head. Aroma is thin nuttiness and sweet malt. Taste is lightly nutty and malty up front with a big chocolate note in the finish. Tmoney99 (15137) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2009
Bottle from Party Town, KY.
Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malty aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium balanced bittersweet flavor with medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration.
Worth trying agian. dwyerpg (6498) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 5, 2009
Quite nutty aroma, some smoke. No head. Taste is nutty, smoky and yet flat like the head. Might be quite good if it still had some carbonation left.
