Ibrew2or3 (7511) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Called the West Coast Brown ale (no idea a brown ale and west coast had anything to do with one another) poured up at the brewery with a nice looking amber colored body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up nutty notes, roasted malts and some sweet malts off in the background. The taste delivers sweet malts, nutty sweetness, some roasted malts and then thin layers of brunt maltiness. This is pretty rich and deep with body and flavor

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle:   Bit of a foam over at opening.   Comes across as spritzy, light, soft toasted malts, touch of coffee and cocoa.   Nice flavor profile, but real light, too light.   Low on the hop side.   Light to moderate body and mouthfeel.   Soft toasted malts linger, even a touch of lactose.   Tiz okay, but needs more body.

JohnnyJ (4950) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Clear brown pour, with a thin off white head. Toasty malt, nuts, caramel, and lightly hoppy. A solid brown ale.

Sathorael (153) - Oceanside, California, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Pours muddy brown with medium soapy tan head. Aromas of toffee, chocolate, bready malts, and subtle floral hops. Taste is big bready malts, chocolate, coffee grounds, and mild bitterness. Finish is slightly sweet. Not a bad beer, but missing balance overall.

alexanderj (3423) - Branson, Missouri, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle; dark muddy brown in color with a big head. Aroma of caramel, toffee and roasted malt. Fairly hoppy for the style, but a bit too muted in the brown/malty backbone. Easy to drink and solid overall.
