The latest batch of Bald Guy Brown is now an Organic brew, and clocks in at 4.7% ABV. Served in a shaker pint, Bald Guy is an orange tinted brown, with a slight chill haze and light khaki 1/2 finger head that is slow to subside, leaving moderate lace.

The smell is faint and moderately sweet, with butterscotch, caramel and root beer.

The taste is very light, similar to the aroma but with a firm bitterness and slightly dry finish.

The mouthfeel is very nice, light and creamy, the best part of this beer.

This was quaffable enough, but the malt is a bit thin it's a bit to bitter to entice me into a session, in spite of it's light body and ABV.

Bald Guy Brown is described by the brewery as, “Our salute to bald brewers everywhere.” Fair enough. But you might expect a beer with such a moniker to have a good head, perhaps even a big robust body. These are not to be found. Bald Guy’s suds frame an eclipsed head and leave spotty lace. What the Bald Brown does possess is a palatable flavor appropriate for the style. The color is brown much like an Arizona sunset. It’s not opaque; more like a shadowy curtain. It takes a bit of agitation to evoke a smell, but the aroma is initially malty and appetizing.

Bald Guy lacks sustain but is still very drinkable. The aroma vanishes quickly and the flavor becomes cloying and astringent in the finish. (Do I detect a splash of Minoxodil in the mash?) Still, on a warm summers eve before catching a movie in Northwest Portland, a pint of Bald Guy makes for a refreshing aperitif.

Its housewarming time, and I need a beer that matches the fall feeling, and the interesting combination of foods we're serving. A brown seems like a perfect choice. Damn near...

pours a deep brown with a nice cherry core in the light. Nice spiral galaxy foam swirl for head. Full crown of nearly nitro style bubbles and delicate lacing on the glass. Aroma is wonderfully peaty with a nice sweet maltiness and a subtle hop balance. Taste is a full range of flavors without being oppressive. A friendly and interesting sweetness for those who may not like a smokey beer, but a delicious roasted peaty finish. Both a nice rauch finish and a lingering dryness that beg for another sip. The light body is easy to drink, and the mix of flavors proves interesting to a wide variety of drinkers.
