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.

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.

A: Dark copper/light brown color, with a very light tan head, the head is a little thin, but leaves a bit of lace.
S: Caramel sweetness
T: Caramel, toast, a definite shot of bittering hops, something that makes me think of a light roast coffee in the background. There seems to be a metallic taste by the end of the beer, not unpleasant, but I could do without.
M: A little too much carbonation, but not terrible. The hops seem to linger on the tongue, borders on astringent.
O: A nice, easy drinking brown ale. There is nothing truly exciting going on, but that is more the style vs. this beer. I would definitely recommend it to a BA who likes more malt driven beers vs. hops driven. Glad I got a chance to try, thanks JC. Worth trying.

Pours a nice mahogany with a frothy tan head.

Not a lot in the nose other than some malt and sour yeast.

Taste is a nice malty punch with caramel and bread notes. If has a nice nutty finish that is left bouncing around your mouth. A very nice brown ale with good flavor.
