On draft at LAS
Real nutty.
Nice nut brown ale. Pretty heavy on the dark roasted malts.
Medium bodied and carbonated. Solid beer. Not a lot of options at this airport but this one hit the spot.

Looks good. Nice brown ale, maybe a tad thin looking with a nice off-white head that sticks around for a bit.
Slightly sweet malt with a bit of nut. A tad thin feel, but probably standard for style these days.
Taste is rather like the aroma. A bit nutty. Dryness from the malt and shows a little hop character in mid to finish, but it is background. Mouthfeel adds a bit of body but still rather thinness, but not too bad.
This is a decent standard brown ale. Nothing to right home about. A little underwhelming but not bad either.

A very awesome two finger head that has really good retention. The is a frothy off white head that left some lacing on the glass. The color of the beer is dark rich cocoa color.

A roasted malt with caramel, bready, nutty, an expresso note and some yeast.

A strong roasted coffee note with bread, caramel, chocolate, nuts, a grapefruit, and pine note linger on the back end.

The mouthfeel is slightly tannic, and finish lingers

This one is a bit odd for me. A very strong roasted coffee note rips through this beer, similar to a stout. The look of the beer is great. the smell is good and the taste is meh. it is Ok

Tried to be fair on rating, got a single from Total Wine in Vegas and just realized that it is dated 03/21/17 and I consumed on 07/31/2017. Even though its dated, its still far from the best brown ale I've had.

Described as a hippy brown but this was a great malty brown

Very hoppy brown ale. Borderline dark IPA.
