A - crystal clear, flashes red in the light, big creamy light tan head persists, lots of clingy lace
S - caramel nuttiness, with some spicy hop aromas, clean, light breadiness
T - fair bit of spicy hops up front, gives way to some carmel and bready notes, finish is quick, aftertaste is biscuits and nuts
M - med light body, med carbonation, smooth, but crisp, no alcohol presence,
D - this is a pretty rockin brown ale, straight up & easy to drink, what more do you want?
Brown ale by definition is rather tame, and typically not my favourite style. However, Sierra Nevada does it justice with their version. Fairly hoppy, but not so much as to push the boundaries of the style. I like the super clean character, it brings the malts into focus. Can't really complain about anything here, about as good as a brown ale gets. Not my first choice at the store or a bar, but I sure wouldn't turn one down either.
