Brew pours to a nice brown color with some ruby like highlights. The head is big, light tan with pretty good retention and what is there has left great amount of lacing down the side of the whole glass. The aroma is of roasted malts, caramel, maybe molasses and chocolate. Nutty aroma comes through as well. Hop presence is minimal, at least compared to the malt profile. Big and malty! Lots of caramel and chocolate come through, roasted malt flavor is negligible. Hops come out more here at the tail end, plays well with the carbonation as it gives a slight tingle to the tongue and adds a slight bite. Has a nice feel as it washes across the mouth, creamy like feel. Overall this is a very easy drinking brew and what I think is a great brown ale - one of my favorite styles. Ill look for this one again, not sure why it took so long for me to pick it up.

Pours a deep molasses or maple syrup brown body with ruby hues beneath the generous tan head which slowly dissolves to leave a constant sticky lacing about the glass.
Sweet brown sugar and molasses float from the glass as advertised. Perhaps some dark fruitiness like plum is there as well. There does not appear to be much of a hop presence, perhaps some earthy notes but that's about all.mm
The flavor is a bit sweeter than the nose lead on with intensified brown sugar and molasses with a hint of maple syrup. There is a dark bready malt quality as well- like marble, with a biscuity quality but the beer finishes as sweet as it started.
On the fuller side in body with generous carbonation and a sweet, smooth finish.
A nice example of the style overall, not just specific to American Browns. I would argue that despite being a west coast brew it really borders on the English style if you swapped out the nuttiness for sweet sugar, but no real hop presence I could detect.
