joeneugs (2932) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 3, 2012
On draft at the brewpub. It pours amber with a disappearing off white head. The aroma is toasted malt with some sweet plummy fruit. The flavor is mildly toasty and more dark fruity. Kind of weird for a brown ale.

marcus (6015) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 7, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours light brown with a decent beige head and a nutty aroma. There is a stale bread flavor with a fair amount of bitterness and a chocolate aftertaste.

Tasted at the 5th Annual (2008) Triple Rock Firkin Fest. This brown ale pours a medium brown color from the firkin. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is diacetyl and iced tea and then some malty butter. A medium bodied brown ale. ARGH, I am not overly sensitive to diacetyl, but geez you could smell the butter across the very crowded room. The malts are caramel, ice tea and diacetyl. The hops are earthy. How can you make a brown ale that is such a total train wreck as this beer. I had to wash my tasting glass in hot water twice to get rid of the butter. Horrid beer.

More diacetyl and iced tea with a bit of biscuit and toffee. FAirly soft on the palate with more iced tea notes. Clean finish.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - NOV 20, 2007
Draft. Garnet color with a ivory head; clear. Very faint aroma that I have problems getting anything out of. Slight malt flavor. Very faint flavor- tastes more like carbonated water than anything else.

At NorCal Brewers Guild Festival at Raley Field as "Brown". Dark brown amber color with a lacing head. Thin rich malty start - not harsh - lightly carbonated. Its mostly malt with some balancing bitter in the finish. Its a brown, and the smoothness and low carbonation help it to seem very English.

On tap at Lodi Beer Co. - This was easily my favorite beer of the night from Lodi Beer Co. A easy aroma of light hops, and honey/sweet malts. Unfortunately, it did have a bit of tea character but not too much. Appearance was amber in color. Mouthfeel was light, clean with a nice finish. Flavors were sweet, minimally hoppy with a nice caramel finish. A really nice session beer I think. Best of the night.
