I had a can of this in St Louis recently and it was quite good so I'll give it a go. Thanks to Austin Homebrew for the clone recipe that I adapted a little bit.

Notes:

Medium brown in color with slight haze and half a finger of foam. Aroma is sweet wheat bread with a touch of roast. Flavor follows aroma but more nuttiness and roast than in the nose and a fairly prominent bitterness on the tail end. Body is medium and and nucleation is a bit sharp. Overall this is a great brown ale and I don't know that I could really improve it. 5 stars.
