COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our medium-bodied Brown Ale has a smooth yet complex maltiness from a special blend of roasted and caramel malts. Nicely balanced with English and American grown hops!

"a thin bodied, slightly nutty brown ale. average hue for the style. ok, but not unique or special. i’d usually prefer a porter or stout to this style of brown. the watery body is what killed it for me. Better at times but inconsistent."

Draft at brewpub. Strong dark bread and crusty malt in the nose. Light brown, almost red in color. Medium sized off white head tight bubbles. Laces well. Moderate toast and roast in the flavor, but not sharp or overly drying. Slightly thin, but very good. Didn’t get much hops from the beer though.

joeneugs (3416) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 31, 2013
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a dark amber/brown color with a tan head. The aroma is sharply roasted and toasty with hints of cocoa and coffee. The flavor is very toasted and dry with strong roasted bitterness. Good body. A great session brown ale.

Fatehunter (1337) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 12, 2013
A half finger of head on a brown/amber body. Good lacing. The aroma is nutty with toasted malt. Nice. The flavor is roasted malt with a moderate bitterness from the middle to end. It is smooth with moderate carbonation and medium body. A fairly standard brown ale with an interesting kick of bitterness in the taste.

Zymurgeist2 (1081) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Sampler at the brew house. Great aroma of toffee and caramel malt. Pours a clear mohagony with an off-white head. Medium mouthfeel of chewy chocolate malt and full biscuit. Finishes nicely bitter.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Growler from the brewery. Clear brown with an off white head. Aroma of biscuit dough, herbal hops and fruity esters. Flavor is rich biscuit malt with some light hop bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation. One of the better standard beers from Auburn in my opinion, just a solid English style brown.

bnoel09 (442) - Elk Grove, California, USA - AUG 13, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Medium brown color and very translucent. Aroma is pretty typical brown ale - some sweet malts and nuttiness. Flavor is a little more complex than the aroma lets on with some nice light roasted malt flavors as well as some coffee notes. Palate is extremely light. Overall a decent brown that would be infinitely better with a little more body - just too watery for my taste.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2010
Soft nutty notes on the nose. A hint of roast and chocoalte. Brown/amber pour, soft head. Toasted nut flavor, hints of roast, light sweetness, chocolate. Earthy bitterness rounds out the finish.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Clear brown with a hint of red. The aroma is very toasty and I sincerely mean that. The only other quality i get besides toast is some fresher grain. The flavor has a good dose of toast as well, along with lighter caramel, and subtle hops. Light and crisp in the mouth. A decent session brown (does that make this a mild though?) but too toasty for me overall.

marcus (6696) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 2, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours reddish brown with a thin beige head and a malty aroma. There is a smoked malt flavor that is a bit thin, nevertheless pretty tasty, as well as some subtle hop bitterness.
