36 IBU

Brewed with 2-Row Pale and 5 Specialty malts, it's malty in both flavor and smell. A heap of Cascade and Willamette add balance to this easy drinking ale. Hole up, have a few, and tell us what you think. We’re bettin’ it’s the best Brown Ale you’ll ever have.

Pouring from a 12 oz. can into a pint glass. This beer pours out hazelnut in color and has good clarity. Has a thin light tan colored crown. The smell is sweet from the malt. The sweetness is like a light syrup or molasses then mixes with very slight toasty notes. The taste is a very nice balance between a more prominent than the nose toasty notes and sweetness mixing with a slight hop bite that goes well with this beer. It just adds another element. This brew also has some nice bread/cracker notes. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and good for the style. A little dryness that goes along with the toast you get.

16oz draft served at Draft Room in Franklin, TN inside Kings. The beer is light brown with a red tint and khaki head. The head recedes to a thin cap with little lacing. The aroma is a little nutty and bready. The taste is nutty with a hint of caramel and little bitterness. Mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied, adequately carbonated and mostly dry in the finish. Overall, good. Solid food beer and enjoyable.

Pours a slightly dark brown and leaves the same colored body with a slim one finger white foamy head that dies within about a minute, some nice foamy lacing graces the sides of the glass in a clingy sort of fashion; the aroma is nutty, malty, slight caramel all combined nicely and coming forth strong and sweet; the flavoring is mainly nutty and sweet; slightly nutty/caramel malty aftertaste and a dry sort of nutty finish; its fairly easy on the palate for a Brown Ale but still packs a slightly heaviness to sit just right on a Winter’s night. Overall, definitely would have again.

Nutty, crisp, sweet finish. Slight head but coats the glass well. Nice dark amber color.
