4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Phenomenally surprising brown ale (!) full of body, depth and taste. Malt and caramel and a really husky, robust backbone make for something a lot more special than most brown ales I’ve come across.
Beautiful label, too.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Darker brown pour with a froth of tan foam. Aroma is even, dry roasted malt, nuts, and minimal sweet malt into the finish. Taste is semi-heavy roasted malt with a strong nut flavor, slight coffee-type roast, and a nice hop bitterness into the finish. Mouthfeel is even and light. Nice brown ale and one of the better beers I’ve had from this brewery.

Davy Brown Ale is rich without being overpowering and never bitter. A nice head and creamyl flavors. Fantastic in the cooler weather with great food. California’s Cold Springs Tavern serves Davy Brown on tap. With a roaring fire and a hearty meal, the atmosphere is ideal for this flavorful beer. A brew as important to a stew as gravy to a turkey on Thanksgiving.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of the better browns that I have had. A nutty brown aroma with a distinct American brown character. Does not taste as dark as it looks. White head, SRM is dark. Has great hop balance. I had it first from a 22oz bottle at a nearby restaurant and then on tap at their taproom after our group found out about the brewery. Great find.
