I got Pig's Ear from Woodstock Brewery via beer trade and it is a very nice brown ale.

Look: semi-clear brown with no head.

Aroma: It has a nutty, sweet, caramel aroma.

Taste: Nutty, toasted malt flavor, bready, chocolate, modestly hoppy.

Feel: Medium body, easy drinking

smells like an adjunct lager to me ... mostly detecting sweet corn and grains, maybe a hint of roastyness. taste is much better, but definitely not what i expected. a bit of tartness and some dark malts that provide some sweetness for balance. overall not a bad brown ale but nothing special.
