Poured into a pint. Pours out a medium red brown with a nice inch of off-white head. Great lacing.

Nice nutty start to the smell, toffee and a bit of mint follow. Bit of cocoa at the end.

Smooth nut bread start to the taste. A bit of toffee and a slight hint of minty and citric hops, very slight. Goes down pretty smooth, little too heavy on the carbonation.

Very nice brown ale. Good for summer evening drinking.

(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 in the St. Bernardus globe with a nice swirl of low-altitude foam. Creamy carbonation is a nice feature. The smell is a double take-- sweaty horse blankets.

Dark malt flavors enlivened with some bitterish hops is the short version. This is more charred around the edges than the usual sweet caramel sorts of Brown Ales. The smell keeps intruding, but there seems to be some peculiar nutty flavor in this. Pear skins and raisin bread toast with a bitter twang in the aftertaste. This is actually much more interesting than the run of the mill brown, especially with the moderate alcohol content.From the 16 oz can purchased at Bottleworks in San Diego.

From the first canning ever on the 16th of Jan 2013.

A reddish brown with a dense, light brown head that falls off to a disk leaving little lacing, this looks decent. The nose has an initial whiff that is strongly reminiscent of cheerios, but once it's had time to breathe, aromas of cocoa puffs, toast, caramel and earthy hops appear.

The palate opens with a blend of sweet caramel, cocoa, toast and a grainy astringency. Honeyed whole wheat toast, a little bit of sugar, both of which are pleasant, are offset by the grainy bitterness that isn't. The mid-palate is sugary and watery, and the finish is mildly sweet, moderately bitter and a little astringent. Light in body and arguably over-carbonated, this feels decent on the palate. A decent effort.

Served on cask at the Pub at Golden Road on March 20th, 2013.

Slightly murky mahogany colored brew with a creamy, three-finger off-white head. Lots of tiny little bubbles moving ever-so-slowly up through the beer. Lots of sticky, clinging sheeting throughout the drink-down. Beautiful.

A slight peppery aroma. Grapefruit and bready malts mingle with subtlety.

Flavor is smooth and mellow, perhaps too much so. Brown malts and lots of melanoidin. Trace bitterness (tastes charred) on finish.

Slightly chewy and thicker than medium-bodied.

The appearance was the best thing about this beer; perhaps being on cask blunted the flavors too much?
