Great (dark) English style brown ale. A bit toasty, nutty and smooth. Creamy Malty notes.

If you like British brown ale, bitter & pale ales, you'll enjoy this one. I delight in malty, low hopped ale, so "Get...That Brown" as it's worthy.

First thing I noticed was this smelled exactly like sesame oil. Good taste first off, but fades in seconds. Great session beer over all.

Appearance: Dark brown, can just barely see light through it. Creamy looking tan head that lasts a very long time.

Smell: Chocolate, caramel, roasted malts.

Taste: Follows the nose. Sweet malt backbone goes well with the caramel taste. Some bitterness and roasted flavor at the end.

Mouthfeel: Fairly thick with lots of fine carbonation. Feels creamy.

Overall: Does not seem like a brown ale - more like a porter, stout, or scotch ale. Whatever it is classified as, it’s delicious. The abundant flavor and substantial feel is great for a 5.5% ABV beer.

On tap at Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a clear copper-brown with a light beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots and streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of roasty malt, roasted nuts, and some slight cocoa aromas. Taste is of roasty malt, nutty flavors, and some cocoa powder. There is a very nice roasty bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation and a medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good brown ale with some great roasty and nutty flavors.

(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.
