i liked this brown a lot, although it looks a little flat from the tap, and really could stand a little more carbonation, but other than that it is excellent. it has a great citrus hop character, not as intensely hopped as say an india brown ale, but it has some of that going on for sure. a little murky in opacity, but the color is a rich chocolate lava. the nose is chocolate malt and a nice medium toast on the barley, with an earthy element, not sweet at all, and i think decidedly american, rather than english. the hops might be citra, they have a real fruity vibe going on, and its all in the finish, a real cool way to clean up a boldly flavored darker beer. all of the tequesta base beers were really solid, and this was up there right behind the gnarly barley pale ale. i hope to be back here eventually.

Poured from nitro-tap into a TBC Pint glass.

Color: A mid-dark brown with a tan head.

Smell: Coffee, chocolate, citrus notes.

Taste: Coffee, chocolate, hops, roasted malt, citrus with a nice bitter bite. YUM!

Mouthfeel: Great carbonation, slightly coarse with a dry finish.

Overall: Love the complexity and balance of this brew. Just an all around great brown ale. TBC needs to start bottling more so I can get the word out on this GREAT brewery. Cheers!

Served on tap at the brewery today.

A: Certainly looks like a brown ale. Ruby highlights, off-white head.

S: Roasty, light grassy notes. Nothing too inviting.

T: Bitter coffee, mild tobacco. Hops probably contribute to that. Finishes with a very slight citric twang.

M: Thin, effervescent, and slightly prickly.

O: Not a great example of the style. For the ABV, not much of a quaffer either.

Poured out of a growler into my Duvel Tulip.

A - Deep dark ruby brown pour. No light through this one. Poured about a two inch foamy tan/white head. Spotty lacing.

S - Toasted malt. Citrus. Touch of sweetness.

T - Very nice roasty malt flavor upfront. Has just a bit of sweetness to it. Citrus flavors flow at the end. Grapefruit. Piney as well. Has some bitterness to it. Nice package of flavors.

M - Medium bodied. Medium carbonation and leaves your palate just a bit dry.

D - Oh yes. Drinkable. Seek and enjoy this one. Make a night of it.

* Reviewer is a total homer for TBC brews. Matt the brewer is the man. Reviewer suggests you go and get a few beers and try then for yourself.

Tequesta Brewing Company started out brewing in a small restaurant called Corners Cafe where I've had this beer many a times. The brewery has since moved next door and is now a full fledge brewery. This one is reviewed from memory by this point.

A - Dark Amber/Red with a 1 finger head that dissipates quickly leaving some mild lacing down the glass

S - Big hop profile citrus, pineapple, melon, hint of earth or pine, mild malt presence

T - Tons of Flavor Citrus/pineapple hops some earthy/pine hops and a wonderful roasty maltiness, really amazing flavor at this low ABV.

M - Medium Bodied

D - At 4.3% this beer is incredible. Could literally drink this all night long.
