BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Oak Creek Brewing Co.
Arizona, United States
oakcreekbrew.com

Style: English Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Winner of both the Gold and Bronze Medal in the North American Brewers' Association competition. This northern Arizona favorite has a consistent nutty flavor with just a hint of spice in its depths. A slowly emerging bitterness crops up along the way and is unobtrusively incorporated into the smooth flow. It finishes with a gentle nuttiness and spiciness.

Mahogany, tea-like, up to the light. 1/2 a finger of eggshell head that fades fast with minor spotty lacing. It does smell like roasted nuts, so that's a good sign. Also a bit of that classic brown ale smell, but not a dark roasted rich smell. Malty and a bit sweet. There is a bit of an off/rotten flavor in this. Malt and bread crust. Average carbonation, dry on finish and medium thin body. Approaching a drain pour because of this nasty rotten meat flavor. Yuck.

Great nutty flavor with quite a good mouthfeel for the ABV. Smooth and creamy.

Great nut flavour. Enjoyed at the hideaway pizza place in Sedona AZ. Need to try again.

Poured out of the bottle. Color and overall appearance was promising with a nice tan head. Some toasted notes in the nose, but not as nutty as I would have expected. I found the flavor to lack complexity, especially in the malt character and minimal contribution from the yeast. Perhaps the sample had been on the store shelf too long
