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.

I think The Bros need to take a look at this one again. Beautiful, foamy caramel head and a strong but not overpowering malty taste. Definitely one of the better brown ales I've tried recently.

Can from Adam from trade. Pours dark reddish to brown color with a little light showing through and a one finger off white to light khaki head. Aroma of sweet malts, dark fruits, some light grassy hops, smells like a malty pale ale. Flavor is some bock late, dark fruit, a bit of lightly biting hop at the end. Then there's a strange heavy metallic finish that ruins what seems to be otherwise very nice flavors. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Not bad.

3.84/5  rDev -0.8%

Appearance: Arrives with a mahogany colored liquid capped by an inch of foam; a few strands of lacing

Smell: Toasted bread, toffee, nuts and stone fruit

Taste: Malt forward, with a blend of toasted bread, toffee and nuts; adds a bit of stone fruit in the middle and the finish is slightly grainy and sweet

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A decent brown though I would like to see a bit more balance as the sweetness started to get to me

Pours a nice mahogany with a frothy tan head.

Not a lot in the nose other than some malt and sour yeast.

Taste is a nice malty punch with caramel and bread notes. If has a nice nutty finish that is left bouncing around your mouth. A very nice brown ale with good flavor.
