Happy hour at my house! However it comes with one caveat; you can't come! Only I, DoubleJ, can drink this Colorado mountain town brown ale, and there's 12 ounces. On to the beer:

I'm not sure if this is a brown ale or an orange amber ale. Okay, brown enough. On top is a short creamy head which yields spots of lace around the glass. The beer has a nutty aroma, a kiss of dry toffee, and more nuttiness.

The overall flavor is respectable while being easy to drink. Still a nutty forward brown ale, but with a little extra overall sweetness. Hazelnut, toffee, a very light hop bitterness, all along the flavored tasted. The beer is light bodied with soft carbonation, and a lingering nuttiness in the aftertaste.

Respect to Idaho Springs for this mountain town brown. It does the job of being flavorful and drinkable. Give this to a Newcastle Brown Ale lover.

This is a clear, chestnut brown beer. The head is fizzy and a bit thin. Nice malty, nutty scent. I didn't get much maple in the aroma, but there is a pleasant toast smell. A bit more maple comes out in the flavor. Semi sweet and malty. Medium in body. This is a better than average, enjoyable brew.

Pours out to a thin buff head that makes an honest attempt to lace the glass. Clear brown color. Aroma is...maple with a hint of nuts and malt. Flavor is nutty, malty and slightly sweet with a crisp finish. light mouthfeel, not syrupy at all. Overall good quaff.
