Had this in a bomber, poured into a glass. The usual AleSmith bottle....which I kind of dig, actually.
Had a somewhat roasted and chocolately aroma to it....mildly sweet. A robust brown ale on the nose.
As one may expect, pours a deep brown into my glass...head seems somewhat thin. Nothing out of the ordinary here.
The taste though, makes it one of the more flavorful nut browns out there. This one puts most of the ones I've had from the UK to shame. There's definitely a good roasted and chocolatey taste there that leads this one off and ends up being the predominant lingering flavor after the drink. Between that though, some sweet toffee and of course nuttiness as well (although the latter is fairly weak). And again, roast and chocolate hanging around in my mouth after.
Very easy drinking, yet robust. I'm surprised it's only 5 percent. Tasty as hell though!

well, packaging sure has changes on this since the one shown, but the beer in the bottle remains one of the quintessential american made examples of the style, and for the price, probably the best (at least to my knowledge). love this stuff. earth tones and cocoa of the semisweet variety are the primary smell and flavor elements of this thin looking light brown beer, as red amber as it is brown really. not a long enough lasting head for me, but it shows well on first pour. add to the cocoa and the earthy nuttiness a mild vanilla complex, a minerality in the water profile, a cola weirdness, a toffee dessert vibe, and a yeast that shows elements of both burton and california ale, and you have an elegant yet sturdy, complex yet drinkable, bold yet forgiving nut brown that does everything i want it to and nothing i dont. when i consider that this bomber is widely available and costs between 6 and 7 dollars, i realize that if these types of brown are your jam, this is clearly your jelly. the only brown ale i really need for quite some time.

Rich dark brown in color with great clarity. A thin layer of white foam rests on top. Brussels lacing. Luscious nutty aroma along the lines of hazelnut and caramel greets me. Delicious hazelnut dominates the dark malt flavor. The mouth is smooth and silky.
