Don’t get thrown by this one coming out of the tap handle!! While dark in color, this Brown ale has a remarkably light mouth feel making it a great beer any time of year. The malt profile showcases hints of caramel, roasted nuts and cocoa. Just like the Rodeo Announcer says…. “Let’s make him feel a little better on SATURDAY NIGHT!!”

The beer is a very dark brown with a 1" head of off white foam and has some nice lacing. Lots of sweet malt and cocoa in the smell, which I’m digging. Same for the taste...definitely English style with very little bitterness and nice levels of malt and cocoa, slight nuttiness. Medium body goes well with a lightish carbonation. This is a very good Brown Ale served from my Growler.

This is a well done beer. Light hop and lots of toasty grain. Nice nose. Mouthfeel is very nice. This really is a good beer based on abv.

Great beer, my standby whenever I visit family in Sheridan. Just a hint of caramel in the initial whiff, with a lovely chocolate color and just a nice bit of head. Smooth finishing beer that I find myself coming back to again and again.

Medium dark pour with a small head. A little coffee, wheat, nutty taste. Not at all bitter at the end, which I like. Very drinkable beer. Brewed semi-locally to me. A total winner in my book!

Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance - The beer is served a deep brown tiny color with a tiny head.  The head fades fast to leave almost no lace on the glass. Smell - The aroma is light with  light roast cocoa and caramel smell.  A little bit of brown sugar and earth are there as well rounding out the smell. Taste - The taste begins with a roasty taste with a bit of a caramel and cocoa sweetness.  As taste moves on more sweetness comes to tongue with some loss of roast and a little bit of coffee coming in.  In the end, a little bit of earth and a bit more sweetness comes to the tongue to give a slightly sweet but moderately roasty taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel - The carbonation level is rather low with a rather thin body and feel.  The low carbonation is nice for the flavor profile and tastes, but the feel is a bit thin.  Overall, it is OK Mouthfeel in the end. Overall - An OK brown, but nothing all to exceptional.

Can. Cloudy brown pour with a slight ruby hue, thin tan head. Aroma is dark fruit, chocolate and coffee. Taste is fairly sweet, rich for the low ABV, but not overly roasty or harsh. A bit sweet for the style without bitterness to balance, but nice and rich, overall pretty nice.
