While I have to say this is more flavorful than the average Brown Ale, I wish it wasn't. There is an intense back of the throat catch that is very peculiar. Severely roasted grain, burnt oatmeal, and a bitter finish.

Why is this so bitter? There is a little resiny and piney hop flavor, but mostly it's a bitter harshness that burns the throat.

Innocuous appearance-- clear brown color with a modest head. Spritzy on the tongue. Undrinkable. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Beer Revolution in Oakland.
