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.

joeneugs (4585) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 5, 2014
On tap at Cato’s Alehouse. It pours a deep reddish brown color with a khaki head. The aroma is nice and toasty with some chocolate and nuts. The flavor is nutty and toasted with strong earthy, menthol and spicy hop character. Medium/strong bitter finish. The malts work really well with the hop varieties and usage. This is a West Coast Brown Ale I can get behind. Really tasty.
