Notes/Commercial Description:
36 IBU

Brewed with 2-Row Pale and 5 Specialty malts, it's malty in both flavor and smell. A heap of Cascade and Willamette add balance to this easy drinking ale. Hole up, have a few, and tell us what you think. We’re bettin’ it’s the best Brown Ale you’ll ever have.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

poured from a can into a pint glass

A: standard brown color with a one-finger tannish head that didnt last long. no real lacing to speak of.

S: hops overwhelmed any other smells

T: hops, hops, hops. some caramel and malty flavor are hidden in there, but it's bitter hops from beginning to end

M: Decent mouthfeel; not much carbonation

O: To me it was more of an IPA than a brown ale, as it came across much hoppier than I expected. Probably a good beer if you're looking for that

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

No freshness date, poured into a pint

A- pours a murky brown creek water color with a small foamy off-white head that reduces to just a bit floating on top

S- husky malt with sweet notes of caramel, chocolate, vanilla and raisin. Light fruity & herbal hop aroma

T- sweet earthy malt with flavors of toffee & chocolate, grainy and husky, light herbal hops with a medicinal-like bitterness that lingers, somewhat unorthodox for a brown ale

M- medium body and carbonation, foamy mouthfeel and finish

O- middle of the road brown, would like to see more of the chocolate/toffee, and the strange medicinal bitterness leaves a strange linger
