(another one on tap from City Beer Store, SF - saw it a bunch of other spots in town)
This is a solid American Brown.... nice, dark chestnut color, clean, bit of spongy head w/o endurance.... the aromas suggest day-old brown bread, perhaps a touch of esters to brighten it up, but little-to-no hops (that's what I like in this style!).... A roasty, tough-crusted brown bread does come across on the palate with a slight dark, hardwood flavor as well - all malt here, enough caramel to add some complexity and, again, no hoppiness of note, perhaps a touch of its bittering.... wonderfully clean-drinking with more than a little gummy, crystal-malt roundness in the body....
Not a bad brown ale at all! Malt-dominant, as I prefer.... I still feel it needs a little more malt complexity (they took it this far...) and more of a lasting, dirty finish....I may have to sample this again when I'm out that way.

Pours a ruby brown hue with a thicket of tan head, forms fine even lacing speckled around the sides of my glass. Aroma has a great malt presence, rolling cereal grains going on nutty character with some notes of dark fruits vinous or raisin qualities and herbal hops in the backend. Flavor has a smooth malt profile, herbal nutty upfront perfect cohesive light end of the complexity spectrum especially for a brown ale. Mouthfeel was medium bodied even smooth carbonation very nice drinking beer, overall something I'm glad that I got to try. Thanks again to my pal deford out in Cali he has some access to great beers especially in 16 ounce pounders like this one!

great local brown ale from the folks at golden road. pours a typically opaque brown with notes of red, and a thin white head that dissipates quickly. aromas are what i would want off an american brown ale: brown sugar, caramel malts, but with something slightly floral hanging around in the back. brown ale sweetness up front transitions to a refreshingly drier finish than most in this category. not too heavy or thick, the get up offa that has an easy drinking texture that encourages another round.

A- pours a clear born with some ruby hue, two-finger off ww
Bite foamy head that retains decently, eventually reducing to a small layer on top
S- slightly nutty with some caramel malt aroma, fruity esters, a hint of chocolate, subdued for the most part
T- roasted smoky malt brings out some caramel and chocolate flavors, slightly smoky and woodsy, finishes dry with a char-like bitterness
M- medium body with prickly medium carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and finish
O- nice nutty notes mixed with some caramel and chocolaty malt flavors
