On tap at Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a clear copper-brown with a light beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots and streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of roasty malt, roasted nuts, and some slight cocoa aromas. Taste is of roasty malt, nutty flavors, and some cocoa powder. There is a very nice roasty bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation and a medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good brown ale with some great roasty and nutty flavors.

(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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Has a nice brown and copper hue. Leaves a bit of lacing .. a one finger tan head that dissipates.

Smell: It has a very roasted/smokey, caramel, nutty and chocolatey aroma.

Taste: Has an upfront dark toasty flavor to it with a taste of hazelnut, caramel and finishing up with the chocolate.

Mouthfeel: Quite thick actually but very smooth when it goes down. It's a bit like a molasses texture to it.

Overall: Probably one of the best I've had so far apart from the only ones I've tried which were Nutty Brewnette and Newcastle's Brown Ale. This one is really great I'm usually accustomed to the taste of stouts. The texture is almost stout like .. this beer is not watery at all. Its leaves a nice coating in the mouth. Very sweet and full of flavor. I recommend others to try this out but I reiterate I haven't had that many brown ales but this is a good one.

Pours two fingers of light tan head on a brown-red body.
The aroma has lots of roasted and toasted malt.
The taste is milky, roasted malt, nutty, mild lemon bitter. Great balance.
Smooth texture with low carbonation.
An excellent brown.

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.
