Recently stumbled across my notes from The Festival 2012. Lets do this!
A - Poured a nice solid hazy brown hue with a good creamy light brown head that fades to leave a thin, soft blanket.
S - Aromas are tons of barley, sugars, grapefruit, pine, caramel. Nice.
T - Taste is more of the same with the hops and caramel mxing to create a bit of an herbal tea thing. Not really a huge fan, but darn are the citrus hops solid!
M - Mouthfeel is solid for the style. Very drinkable.
O - Overall, solid assessable offering for Baird.

A: The beer is clear copper in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high light beige head that died down but consistently left a thin head covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of gooseberries and nutty malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has an interesting mix of flavors of gooseberries and nutty malts along with hints of herbal hops and sweetness. A light amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and slightly watery on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The flavors of this beer seem hoppy for the style, but without the associated bitterness—it's like a hybrid between an English Brown Ale and an English Pale Ale. It is easy to drink yet quite flavorful.

Appearance- slightly hazy brown little head and little lacing.
Aroma- caramel, cofee/tofee vanilla some light florals.
Taste- crisp with a somewhat subdued malt character (as compared to newcastle) some buttery carmely flavors through out the middle and a little bit of a lingering bitter finish. Nobel hops
Mouthfeel- light to medium bodied, once the carbonation settles down
Overall- a decent brown not one I would necessarily seek out but good. I would say this might be more of an american brown because it is a little more hop forward than I am used to,

Appearance is deep brown in color and slightly opaque. Some carbonation but disappates quickly. Smell is a sweet malts with brown sugar and/or maple. Detect a hint of sour maybe from the generous hopping. Taste is well balanced with the malts appearing first and quickly finished with a hop twang but not over the top.

Pours a murky and turbid dark brown with a 1 inch foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. A good amount of sediment is seen floating around in the glass after the pour. Smell is of toasted malt, dark fruit, and some slight caramel notes. Taste is somewhat sour with some toasted malt, slight fruit, and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that smells better than it tastes in my opinion.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on June 6, 2012. The color was brown with a large quantity of foamy, beige head. The aroma was powerful with a great dose of barley, malts, nuts, and yeast. At first it felt like an aged barleywine (but only for a moment). The texture was about medium with an astringent quality to it. Sweet barley malts broke through on the first sip with a warming hop character that grew with each new sip. Av decent Brown Ale.

.60ml bottle poured into pint glass 3/6/12
A dark amber with lots of sediment and no shortage of carbonation, very well sustained two fingers of tan foam has some brown specks and leaves some random lace
S grapefruit and pine come out right away, lots of hops is unexpected but most welcome, there's some caramel malt but mostly citric hops and I'm digging it
T some herbal tea bag to go with what I smell, a little perfume I didn't smell and less citric hops, not as nice as the smell but still great
M medium weight with lots of bubbles, a bit of an Iced Tea aftertaste with a nice bitter bite
O went down pretty fast and I have little too complain about in any area
a nice hoppy brown ale from Japan that I could drink myself stupid with, wouldn't guess its as strong as it really is, be careful with this Angry Boy

360ml bottle, 6% ABV. Why so angry, boy?
This beer pours a dark, muddled golden brown hue, with two fingers of thick puffy, foamy eggshell white head, which leaves a few instances of amorphous blob lace around the glass as things sink away.
It smells of lightly roasted caramel malt, relatively pungent citrus rind and pine resin, and a further, softer leafy hoppiness. The taste is more slightly toasted caramel malt, some additional biscuit and nutty notes, a more flattened citrus character than promised by the nose, and growing, but still tethered, herbal, leafy hops.
The bubbles make themselves known through a slight, mostly innocuous prickliness, the body plays out with a sturdy medium weight, and is generally smooth, that early hop bitterness nagging somewhat. It finishes fairly off-dry, the nutty, caramelized malt withstanding the lingering effects of equally bitter, herbal, and fruity hops.
A quite decent brown ale, one that betrays its pan-Pacific origins - i.e., hopped-up Yankee version with a subtle, but noticeable Asian herbal tint, one that I'm starting to ascribe to the Baird house flavour. Nothing to be angry about here, as this is a potential salve for the tortured soul - ironic, that.
