Notes/Commercial Description:
Winner of both the Gold and Bronze Medal in the North American Brewers' Association competition. This northern Arizona favorite has a consistent nutty flavor with just a hint of spice in its depths. A slowly emerging bitterness crops up along the way and is unobtrusively incorporated into the smooth flow. It finishes with a gentle nuttiness and spiciness.

Had on tap at thier grill in Sedona. Nice setting, very busy. Nice stop after a morning of hiking Oak Creek Canyon.
Our server brought this too me in a nice tall pilsner glass. Good looking dark brown, with two fingers of tan head.
Nice earthy flavor (maybe that cam to mind just becuase we were in Sedona?) Very good brown ale, very drinkable. A great offering from Oak Creek!

3.43/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a nonic glass.

A: Clear, light brown color with one finger of parchment-tinted foam head. Light lacing remains on the glass.

S: Deeply toasted malt is well established, with little else to detract from its traditional qualities save for a fine herbaceous thread that gives added depth.

T: Begins barely off-dry, with cocoa-inflected weak brown malt that lacks the intensity established in the smell. Malt flavors drop off shortly into the middle, becoming more refined with a suggestion of residual sugar. The finish harbors charcoal, mild green plant stems, and a distinct bitter thread not encountered previously in the profile.

M: Thin to medium viscosity, smooth on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: This beer is a fair "desertized" version of an English brown ale. According to the label on the bottle it is 5.5% abv, which leads one to question why it is even that strong when delicious home-brewed English browns have been encountered on more than one occasion which fell more in the 4% range. Like many beer styles brewed in the American desert Southwest, its qualities position it to be refreshing. With that in mind, it is far from being a failure.

Poured a nice deep brown, but with very little head, and no lacing, I would've liked to have seen both. Scents of butterscotch, nuts and caramel malt. Flavor is nutty, with low bitterness, a slightly buttery flavor and some bready flavors, particularly on the finish. It's pretty good, but not as bitter and nutty as I like a brown ale to taste. Mouthfeel is light bodied with low carbonation. True to style, good enough. It's good, but could use a bit more bitterness to make it a bit less Newcastle like. Still, a good Arizona brew, worth trying.
