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.

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.

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.

Pours a clear dark brown with nice soapy tan head. Aroma is milk chocolate and slight dark fruits and roasted malts. Taste follows the Aroma well with a medium mouth feel. Nice brown ale. Well made.

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.

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.

Bottle; poured a dark cola brown color. Aroma was hoppy for the style, with a definite NW profile. Fruity, earthy, a bit of spice and some roasted/caramel. Had a nice twist on the style, with a solid balance of malt and hop components. NW style hops; Finish transitioned from hops to caramel/roasted in a nice way. Good stuff

This dark brown beer has an inviting aroma of nutmeg. It has a roasted malt flavor of chocolate and caramel. Very good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
