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.

Sampled tonight on 6/26/14. Found this bottle in the back of the cooler so it is a good year old I am guess BUT there isn't a expiration date anyone on the bottle and this brew is now RETIRED and no longer brewed. But opened it and it was fine. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a 14 ounce glass 'Texas style " boot.
Pours a clear dark brown in color with a good 3-finger off-white head! Good carbonation with some sediment left in the bottom of the bottle. The aroma is of roasted malts, hazel nut and brown sugar. Very nice! The taste is close to the aroma but not as strong BUT pretty good overall with all the flavors mentioned above coming through lots of the hazelnut 'nut' flavor in the mix. A slight dry smoke finish but still good.
