3.4/5 rDev -9.3%
Medium brown with a white head that laces. A light leafy citrusy aroma seems a bit out of place. Flavor has toasted grains peak through for a second before the mishmosh of hops take over. I say mishmosh because it is slightly fruity, but more kind of just leafy blandness. Finishes with that same flavor lingering. Medium body is smooth and drinkable. The hopping just doesn't impress me and covers up any good malt flavor that may be there. Overall a decent beer to drink if you aren't going to think much about it.

This brown ale poured a hazy brown with a trace of white foam. The smell was malty but modest. The taste was of malt and hops. This brown ale was actually quite highly hopped, in my opinion. The mouthfeel was smooth and crisp, and the finish was hoppy. The drinkability was good.

Medium-dark brown in color, small tan head, leaving good lacing. Malty sweet, some nuttiness, and a mild hoppiness on the nose. Flavor is mildly sweet and caramel, lightly nutty, and medium hoppy in the finish. Good solid mouthfeel. A little hoppier than a typical brown ale, but very well balanced.

What I like about this ale is that it is more than you expect. I normally stick with their specialty beers or their stout but though that I should try something new. Dark brown in color with a small off white head. Well pronounced hops and malt keep this beer in balance. This is one that I will go back for soon.

This is my second favorite brown behind the Goose Island Hexnut brown and my favorite Watch City beer. Very dark in appearance -almost black with some reddish highlights when held up to the light. Hop aromas abound. Dark malts were clean and not too sweet. Hop bitterness and flavor is more than expected for the brown style but I like it that way. Finishes dry. This was definitely brewed in the Northwest tradition.

Presentation: Hand bottled @ Watch City for BeerAdvocate.com
Appearance: A deep mahogany brown with a slightly off white foam head with some stick and decent retention.
Smell: Grain, with soft malt notes, touch of must.
Taste: Semi-smooth with a bit of grain coarseness on the palate, and an overall raw / dry feel. Grain tannins run about, with slightly sweet malt flavour. Other flavours include a touch of smoke, blood, faint fruity flavours and roasted. I can also pick-up some paper flavours from oxidation of the beer. Hops get a bit lost in the tannins, but they emerge with a thin hop citrus twang now and then. Finish is dry, with some grainy leftovers.
Notes: Not a bad brown ale, a bit too coarse for my liking ... and this sample had been bottled and sitting in my fridge for a bit. Try it on tap at the brewpub, if you can.
