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: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

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

A - Pours an amber reddish brown with a huge 3.5 finger dark tan head with excelant retention and lacing. The beer is cloudy in appearance

S - Very sweet smelling aroma. Slight caramel and raisins are present with maybe even a slight hint of coffee

T - Not nearly as sweet as it smells. It is actually even slightly bitter on the front. Has a nice caramel and nutty kick to it. Slight roasted coffee bean taste as well

M - On the lighter side of medium. Slick drinking. Very very very smooth. No burn whatsoever

O - extremely enjoyable brown. Great flavor and plenty of it. Sessionable for sure. Ready for another!
