Pours light brown, with medium carbonation and a good head that leaves too quick for a brown, ok on the lacing.
Aroma of chocolate and raisins. Very clear and clean, medium mouthfeel.
Tastes of burnt toffee, caramel malt sweetness, with light astingency. Finishes dry with slight coffee hints

On-tap at Old Chicago
Pours dark-brown amber with a two finger off-white head. Smells like a red ale but with some roasted characteristics. Taste is different than what I expected, overripe pears and apples are the most predominant, finishing with roasted hazelnut. Mouthfeel is great, smooth and it's body feels fuller than it is. It is dry, tho.

Poured from a bottle and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a vibrant, slightly translucent ruby-brown coloring with a short stacked, off-white, light head that quickly settles down into a filmy coating with a ring of bubbling around the edge of the surface. Aromas are rich, roasted, and nutty, with a touch of toffee throughout. Smells sweet, but not overpoweringly so. Flavors are blended well and smooth throughout, with a roasted nut backbone that has touches of hazelnut as well chestnut and peanut characters. Sweet buttercream highlights keep all of the flavors playing along together, leading to a light, creamy aftertaste and a quick, clean finish. The increased carbonation and light body keep the beer from becoming cloying or overpowering. Very easy to drink with a very decent flavor profile overall. Tasty.

12 oz bottle into tulip. best before Aug. 2012.
A: certainly brown, but neither real dark or real light. the body is actually transparent. more of a rim than a head, however does leave some draping lacing behind.
S: roast starts things off on the nose. almost a little ashy. chocolate. reminds me a little bit of hot chocolate powder.
T: the body actually has a good deal of fruit to it. green grapes. pear. transitions to a bitter roast with a mild finish. mostly bittersweet, but perhaps even a little roasty/smokey.
M: moderate carbonation on an ideally medium body.
D: with most of the examples from the american brown category getting more and more beastly, it is nice to have an example that can deliver flavor without an overbearing body. not a bad "session" american brown.

Pours a light brown color with an off white head and lacing. Aroma of caramel, floral/citrus hops and nuts.
Taste: Caramel and slight toffee upfront, hop bitterness chimes in orange citrus flavors. There is a tart twang (overactive ale yeast strain/infection?) and is a touch metallic. Finishes more malty and slightly dry.
M/O: Light medium bodied feel, well carbonated. Overall, without the weird twang this would be a great brown ale. If I get a better sample I will re-review, but the bottle was fresh.
