This is pretty good. A creamy brown ale with a bit of hops to the body. Light finish. A solid introduction for me to these guys.

The beer poured a very light brown with red hues on the sides of the glass and 1/2 finger of a khaki colored head. The aroma was slightly muted and consisted of toasted malt. Davy Brown is true to the style and the flavors were of toasted malt, nuttiness and was very smooth.

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.

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.

Bottle shared by beerboxer. Pours brown with a thin beige head and a burnt toast aroma. There is a hearty chocolate and roasted malt flavor that is a bit nutty with a slightly bitter finish.
