Dark amber bronze with a thin tan pad. Sweet caramel, brown sugar and berries in the aroma. Straightforward, but likeable, flavour of nutty caramel with a fruity quality in the finish. Very good.

This orange/copper ale poured with a rich beige head and a toffee aroma. There is also a toffee flavor with enough hop bitterness to keep it balanced. Itís a pretty good amber ale.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Rich dark amber beer with a nice off-white head. Low fruity/cocoa aroma. Fruity flavor (berry/citrus) with backing darker malts - cocoa and slight roast. Good clean flavor thatís more interesting than most ambers.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Poured clear medium amber with a moderate cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet caramel, nutty notes, and a little molasses with a touch of earth and vanilla accenting.. quite sweet overall. The flavor found caramel and molasses at the core, with vanilla around.. very little bitterness to note, but perhaps a little oxidation.. tacky finish with a lot of residual sugars. Light-medium bodied and a bit sharp on the palate.. not a great feel.. this was just OK.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear dark copper with a small off-white head. Light caramel malt and plenty of hops fill the aroma. Body is lightly sweet and full of western hops. Finishes dry and crisp with nice hop flavor. I wouldn't really consider this a brown ale, more of an amber mixed with an IPA.

Portland, Or - Johnís Market Place. Dark orange pour, off-white head, light lacing. Crystal malt aroma with fruity hints of pomegranate. Flavor leans to the sweet side with some passion fruit sweetness, a hint of caramel and toffee and some back end nuttiness. Mouthfeel has a nice velvery texture to it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Carmel in color, moderate to large foamy sandy hued head, very nice lacing.   Soft malt nose, seems to be mildly sweet.
Hop aspect is minor.   Pale malt flavor, very slight cereal and/or cardboard.   Minor enough to where it doesnít really
detract.   Little to no hop presense.   Light, fairly clean, easy on the palate.   I spoze as an English Style Brown thats why
its not that agressive or at least assertive.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Does sorta fall off at the finish.   Splains
why its fairly clean as not much lingers.   Light, quick to finish, but with some mild malt flavors.   Not bad, certainly worth a
