COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep colored American Brown Ale is often requested and one of our personal favorites. Many a weekend was spent perfecting this one. Brewed with 2 - row pale and 5 specialty malts, its malty in both flavor and smell. A heap of Cascade and Willamette add to balance this easy drinking ale. Hole up, have a few, and tell us what you think. We’re bettings it’s the best American Brown Ale you’ll ever have.

Pours an appetizing chestnut with a thick golden-buff head that leaves good lacing.aroma delights with caramel, roast malt, molasses, and cloves notes. Lip-smacking flavor is a little sweet but not too much; notes of caramel, cloves, toasted malt, and a little molasses dance across the taste buds.smooth texture is firm and fairly lively. Good people brew good beer.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2014
2011 backlog. 12oz can courtesy of jzzbassman. Thanks Monte! Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a huge head. It took almost 15 minutes for it to reside. The nose is roasted nuts, caramel and faint chocolate. The taste is the same with some citrus hops in the finish. Medium prickly mouthfeel due to the carbonation. Overall a nice beer. I was afraid of infection but there were no off flavors. 3.2

1guywith_aboat (254) - phenix city, Alabama, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Rating from memory. Brown pour. Nutty, malty, citrus aroma. I remember thinking it had a stronger hop presence than most brown ales.

McNeillR (1758) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 25, 2014
Clear vibrant brown. Soft cinnamon. Odd carboardy on the nose and in taste with a weak tea bitterness. Straight forward maltiness and clean bitter finish.

Can, Cheers Zimbo
