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.

Tap pour@Braukunst Live ’15 - 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.

marcus (8809) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 29, 2011
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.

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 15, 2012
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 drinkin’. Solid.

Deep brown color. Nice caramel and toasted malt notes. Seems to be more like a porter than a regular brown ale, but a very tasty one.
