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.

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

Pours clear, dark brown in color, with one inch head. Taste is dark chocolate, baker's chocolate, and leather. Medium bodied and slightly bitter. Makes for a sold, sessionable, brown ale. Have had better in the style, but this one is good.

Looks like you just poured a can of Pepsi . Not much smell slight malt. Excellent honey malt taste. Medium body. Very good beer unless you are one that taste with your nose.

Not much to say, hoenstly. This beer is fine, and worth a try if you see an individual can for sale, but not anything I would buy again or purchase a six-pack of.

Pours a medium brown- cloudy with a thin, creamy light tan head. It leaves small soapy lacing. The aroma is mild and malty, with a hint of nuttiness and a little earthy hops. The taste is much the same with a more pronounced hops profile. The body is lighter, just shy of medium-bodied, with a persistent little carbonated tingle.

Pours a clear, copper color. 5/4 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of slight piney hops, sweet malt, hint of alcohol, hint of yeast, and a hint of caramel malt. Fits the style of an American Brown. Tastes of strong sweet malt, piney hops, hint of caramel malt, hint of yeast, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, decent appearance, body and aroma are identical, an average Brown.

Very well rounded beer. I use this to cook with more than drink. Braise Ribs and Pork Bellies in it.
