(another one on tap from City Beer Store, SF - saw it a bunch of other spots in town)

This is a solid American Brown.... nice, dark chestnut color, clean, bit of spongy head w/o endurance.... the aromas suggest day-old brown bread, perhaps a touch of esters to brighten it up, but little-to-no hops (that's what I like in this style!).... A roasty, tough-crusted brown bread does come across on the palate with a slight dark, hardwood flavor as well - all malt here, enough caramel to add some complexity and, again, no hoppiness of note, perhaps a touch of its bittering.... wonderfully clean-drinking with more than a little gummy, crystal-malt roundness in the body....

Not a bad brown ale at all! Malt-dominant, as I prefer.... I still feel it needs a little more malt complexity (they took it this far...) and more of a lasting, dirty finish....I may have to sample this again when I'm out that way.

Enjoyed from a 12oz can that was poured into pint glass. The beer pours a deep dark amber brown and leaves just the thinnest of heads. Not much in the way of smell, aside from some faint hints of molasses. More flavors come out in the mouth, notes of caramel and molasses which are backed by the presence of malt. A fair amount of nuttiness plays around in the mouth. Also present is that typical metallic taste of English ales. The feel on the tongue is medium, owing to the decent amount of malt offered by this beer. Overall, a very pleasant traditional style English brown ale, though not incredibly complex, it is a good example of the style that can be easily enjoyed.

12 oz can poured into a stone glass. Dark brown pour. Smell is slight chocolate and kind of a nutty smell. Not a bad taste but not a great taste either. There is really nothing to set this apart from any other brown. It's not bad but I probably would not revisit this brew.

Dark brown with a fingernail of creamy brown on top. The aroma is of caramel and molasses. I'm tasting caramel and dark malt. This is coming off a bit on the sweet side for my liking. The mouth is smooth and creamy.

Pours a ruby brown hue with a thicket of tan head, forms fine even lacing speckled around the sides of my glass. Aroma has a great malt presence, rolling cereal grains going on nutty character with some notes of dark fruits vinous or raisin qualities and herbal hops in the backend. Flavor has a smooth malt profile, herbal nutty upfront perfect cohesive light end of the complexity spectrum especially for a brown ale. Mouthfeel was medium bodied even smooth carbonation very nice drinking beer, overall something I'm glad that I got to try. Thanks again to my pal deford out in Cali he has some access to great beers especially in 16 ounce pounders like this one!

Pours two fingers of light tan head on a brown-red body.
The aroma has lots of roasted and toasted malt.
The taste is milky, roasted malt, nutty, mild lemon bitter. Great balance.
Smooth texture with low carbonation.
An excellent brown.

great local brown ale from the folks at golden road. pours a typically opaque brown with notes of red, and a thin white head that dissipates quickly. aromas are what i would want off an american brown ale: brown sugar, caramel malts, but with something slightly floral hanging around in the back. brown ale sweetness up front transitions to a refreshingly drier finish than most in this category. not too heavy or thick, the get up offa that has an easy drinking texture that encourages another round.
