On tap at Townhouse Kitchen & Bar in Sherman Oaks, CA.
Pours a clear dark brown color with a 1 inch light brown head that fades to a thin cap. Foamy sheets of lacing form on the glass on the drink down. Smells of toasted malt, some nuttiness, and an off metallic smell. Taste is of the toasted malt, some slight caramel, slight nut, and subtle hops. The metallic smell I got is also in the taste somewhat. This beer has a very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. A bit coating in the mouth after each sip. Overall, this is a pretty average beer that is widely available. Nothing too great or too horrible.
Serving type: on-tap

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.
A - Poured a very clear reddish copper color. Decent enough head that retreats to lacing.
S - Very pronounced European hop note with little malt aroma.
T - Bitter hops with some hint of malt.
M - Medium body with a dry finish.
O - I honestly thought I was drinking a Heineken that someone had colored brown. This really isn't what I expect from a Brown Ale - not say it was bad - just not what I expected.
