3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer its release from the 12-ounce brown bottle resides in the glass a somewhat murky mahogany color with the head Bunyanesque in size, creamy in texture and a toothsome light tan in color, as it slowly erodes the lace that forms becomes a thick and clinging sheet upon the glass. Nose is nutty sweet, fresh and crisp, hints of caramel and the start sweet with a personable malt presence, the top middling in feel. Finish is delightfully acidic, and the hops abundant but not overly so, a fine drinking beer, a nice thirst quenching beer on a hot Arizona afternoon.

This is one fine tasting beer. As a Brown Ale, it actually tastes like brown, sweet, delicious, brown.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at the brewhouse in Redmond. Clear brown with a creamy head. Light toasty malt in the aroma but not much. This flavor with just a touch of toasty malt and some alcohol spice. This body. Bland overall. This needs more body and malt character.

From a 12oz. bottle--Poured a thin brown burnished body. Some sharp malts, but surprisingly more hoppy and floral than I expected. Very enjoyable beer!
