Beer is a nice light brown with a small head. Aroma is a bit malty and hints of coffee. Flavor is smooth, with notes of oatmeal, cocoa, and sweet malts. Its a nice balanced brown. Not too sweet, very low carbonation. This makes this one a brown you can actually have several of. Its light enough that it doesn't weigh you down. The flavor however is average, yet still a nice enough session Brown.

A deep, ruddy red/brown ale with nutty, caramel flavor and abundant fresh tobacco qualities. Cola notes too. And no shortage of hops. This one's built on a fairly solid brown malt platform with strong hop additions.

Wouldn't mistake King Street for an English ale at all. The zealously over-hopped contours have USA all over them.

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a clean, clear almost mahogany brown with an inch of light tan head that had moderate retention and decent lacing.

A rich, smooth malty aroma wafts across the nose, with just a hint of hops on the end. The flavors are what were expected. A smooth, clean malt flavor coats the tongue and then there's that tickle of hops at the end.

The body was typical for the style, smooth and tongue coating without being heavy. Drinkability is very good, having several of these would be easy. Overall, a nice pleasant beer, worth your time when you see it.

Had this beer on tap last night at the Hooverville in Seattle.

Appearance: deep brown-amber hue with a bit of haze to the body. Head is a thin film of tan foam; can't expect much more from a tap pour.

Smell: lightly bready aroma. Not bad, but quite mild.

Taste: sweet malt flavor with a fair bit of caramel character. Smooth earthy bitterness. A little fruit on the aftertaste; interesting but good. I like it quite a bit, actually.

Mouthfeel: rich medium body with good viscosity and a well-integrated carbonation. Creamy and silky. Quite good.

Drinkability: a tasty, solid brown ale. Think I'll have another.
