On tap at Firestone Walker Taproom, Buellton. A clear, dark brown beer with a small, off-white to light beige head. The aroma is lightly roasted, with caramel and some chocolate notes. Low on hoppy aromas and flavors, some bitterness though. Caramel, caramel malts and some chocolate and coffee hints. Medium body, soft carbonation, quite dry. Short finish. A bit boring, like most brown ales, not bad in any way though. 130809

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at brewery. Dark brown beer that looks almost red in the light as it is clear with a froth of dark tan foam. Aroma is really dry roast with slight sweet malt and a lingering light, lagerish blandness. Taste is dry roast with light hop bitterness, nuts, and caramel sweetness. Fairly subtle flavors but clean and highly drinkable. Nice beer.
