Davy Brown Ale is a deep, caramel beer that combines wonderful roasted malt, light chocolate flavor, and a blend of Northern and Cascade hops. Named after a Santa Ynez Valley pioneer, this beer is a true discovery-both rustic and refined.

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.

Draft. A brown beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of bread, caramel, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and bread, leading to a bitter finish.

Not bad... a good showing, but probably not Award Winning--as depicted on the label. It is a mellow journey through familiar brown ale territory. High in the biscuit and toffee-like flavors. Satisfying. 22oz bottle.

One of my all time favorite brown ales. Balances the roast character deftly with a smooth sweet caramel flavor. The light chocolate character adds a level of depth unmatched. A sensual and lovingly inviting brown color in the glass like a Latin seductress. Not many brown ales take the cake like this one does.

Clear deep amber beer, decent cream colour head. Palate is airy, semi dry and has decent fine carbonation. Smooth malts, some dry cream. A little chocolate and mild spice. Lightly bitter floralness. Ripe oranges and a general fruit tang. Semi dry finish. Tangy fruity linger. Not bad.

Poured from the 12oz bottle into a shaker glass. Dark brown nearly black pour with a tan head. Aroma is sweet and caramely with some nuttiness and light roast. Flavor is not as sweet as the aroma implies - mildly roasty with some nice nuttiness. Medium bodied. Not super complex but a very drinkable brown.

On tap at Fig. Mtn. brewery, smells of malty and roasted goodness. A smooth roasted, malty somewhat coffee taste. A very good brown ale.

Smoothest most flavorful brown I’ve ever had. Definitely my ’go to’ brown ale.
