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.

16oz can poured into a Golden Road Grand Opening tumbler glass.

The beer pours a medium burgundy color, hues of garnet, ruby and dark amber, fairly opaque but with a touch of clarity, plenty of bubbles dancing in the glass with a fizzy, but taut khaki head that has low retention but yields a fair amount of lace. The aroma is of lightly roasted malts, faint bitter coffee, light bittersweet chocolate, hearty bread and a bit of caramel, nice balance between the bitter and sweet aromas. The flavors mirror well, plenty of roasted malt, burnt chocolate, thick, rich dark grains, caramel, brown sugar and a nice flavor of roasted coffee bean, though I don't believe coffee to be an adjunct. Roasty, bitter, sweet, there is a nice balance and nice complexity as well. The mouthfeel is okay, it's a bit thinner than I'd like, carbonation is moderate but higher than expected, it feels a bit prickly, but it does coat the tongue well and the finish is very easy, a touch of dryness.

Verdict: A nice brown ale from Golden Road, definitely a worthy showcase of the style. It's quite sessionable at just 5.5% but brings forth all the requisite qualities of a nice, dark, sipping beer. I definitely enjoyed this one and would love to have this again in a cooler fall month.
