Our "Calico Brown" is a malty brown ale with dark amber hues. There's a velvety smooth body with a light bitter finish from our friend the Chinook hop. We've struck a balance to the bitterness with a hint of spiciness while using Tettang hops to give this ale a pleasurable aroma. We live in Las Vegas and enjoy the surrounding area of Red Rock Canyon. Do yourself a favor: Get back to nature. Get a beer. Enjoy it!

Poured from a 22oz bomber. The beer poured to a minimal/scant head to top off an extremely light and translucent colored brown. Hints of nut and hops in the nose. The beer tasted heavy of nut, but was heavily carbonated, which made it a difficult drink. The carbonation also makes the beer sharp and unpleasant on the tongue and in your mouth. I would not be quick to recommend this particular beer to anyone.
