Approximate 18oz serving size. Poured a deep chestnut brown with ruby hues at the edges when held to the light. Foamy tan head held good retention with a sticky lacing on the side of the glass. Sweet aromas of brown sugar, toffee, and toasted grains, with a hint of chocolate fill the nose. Tastes are of toasted grains, brown sugar, toffee, and notes of nutty milk chocolate and molasses with a slight hint of caramel. Hops are present, but not overbearing allowing the malt profile to keep its presence. Balance seems good. Mouth-feel is rather light with moderate carbonation. Finishes mainly sweet but somewhat bitter; more roasty than anything - there is also an odd nutty character in the finish. Overall, not a bad brown ale, and fits the style well.

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.
