Clear brown with a quickly gone beige head.
Has a sweet, almost medicinal smell.
Body is quite light for a brown ale
Big malt up front with toffee flavors mixing with a hint of carmel, this doesn't really change, but slowly fades away.
Not what I was expecting, imminently drinkable, but lacks anything that would make you want to.
Serving type: on-tap

Sampling right now on 3/28/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner flute fgass.
Pours a dark reddish-brown in color with a very thin off-white head. Spotty lacing is seen with each sip that clings to the glass. The aroma is of roasted malts for the most part. The taste is the same with the malts up front with a slight nutty (hazelnut & almond) finish. Very slight dry finish as well. Overall, it was OK.

Huge, creamy over-sized head erupts from my stein with the pour, loose crown of bubbles on a thick, two-finger base of tiny bubbled foam. Disappearing it leaves a lovely love down the glass. The color is a deep, beautfiul dark amber brown hue. Incredibly rich looks, superb. In the glass, the nose first gives off a strong grassy aroma, then underneath you find a softly sweet nutty brown base, hints of (good) dustiness and Swirling interesting aromas fill the glass, keep me on my toes. Quite unique and enjoyable. Taste is equally excitingly tasty; sweet malty tastes,crisp perfectly-bittered hop traits, creaminess and a slightly nutty finish. Very good, really scratches my brown ale itch. Buster has a slighty bigger than medium feel, covers the palette nicely and delivers it's great flavors all over my mouth.
Wow, blown away by this beer! Ska really hit this one out of the park on all counts; looks, tastes, style-wise. Very tasty brew here.
