COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Deep chestnut and mahogany pour with a small eggshell head that left very little in terms of lacing. Aroma is muted. Roasted malt, nuttiness, and a hint of caramel. Flavor is so much better than its nose. Cocoa, light coffee notes, almond and cashew, char, and vanilla. Moderate mouthfeel and mild alcohol...easy drinkiní. Solid.

Tap pour@Braukunst Live í15 - SA, danke either motelpogo or oldmanriver... Smells like pancakes drizzled with caramelised maple syrup. Seamy, easygoing silky mouthfeel, feeding you a liquid dessert of toffee, milk chocolate cake spiked with hoppy red berries. Mellow & nice.

Draught at the brewery. Itís truly refreshing to see a good example of an American brown that is properly roasty and hoppy. Such things apparently do exist outside of homebrew circles. Niuce chocolate malt flavor and aroma balanced by ample woody and citrusy hops. Dry and bitter but with lots of malt carrying through. One of the better browns Iíve had in awhile. Has someone been drinking Janetís Brown lately?

Pours a reddish brown. Aroma is minimal but the taste is really strong. Big nutty taste with some grain notes on the background. Really nice.

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 Iíve had from this brewery.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2013 Pour from Bomber. Pours a light brown with a small tan head which fades to light lacing. Aroma is nutty and also includes some lightly roasted malts, caramel, coffee, and molasses notes. Taste is similar with a lot nut and toast character but also some nice coffee and molasses notes, plus some mild hop bitterness. Has a medium body with a well carbonated but still creamy mouthfeel and a semi bitter, nutty finish. Overall, a tasty brown that makes me want to try other beers from this relatively new brewer.

Barreras (1186) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Pours a medium brown color with a light caramel malt flavor. Taste is clean but watery. A simple beer that was well balanced but lacking in complexity. A small sweetness to the beer, with an easy bitter aftertaste.

DocJitsu (1183) - Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Pours a clear, medium brown color with a quickly attenuating, even. The aroma consists of dark roasted malt, notes of chocolate, and coffee acidity. The mouthfeel is magnificent. Perfect balance between the carbonation and creaminess perfectly accentuate the woody chocolate, ripe, dark fruit, and coffee acidity flavors. Neil loves this beer. So do I.

BucannonXC5 (1036) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Type: 22-oz. bottle Glass: Pint glass From: BevMo in Goleta, Calif. Price: $5.99 Misc.: Had on Dec. 24, 2012 Nutty brown color with 1-2 fingers of tan head. Average lacing on the sides, wet and foamy. Better retention. Smelled chocolate, Cascade hops, caramel, toffee and lots of bitterness. Tasted dark chocolate, regular chocolate, toffee and caramel, backed my Cascade hops. Medium body. Creamy texture. Above average carbonation. Long, smooth finish. A pretty good debut (for me) by Figueroa. I love the brown ale and hoppy mixes. Try it.
