IBU 14. On tap, frozen mug. Pours dark amber brown with light cream head. Mellow aroma, nutty. Full nutty body. Smooth. Little to no bite after the swallow. A solid brown ale

Nice dark brown color. Great taste. Looks like it's a flat beer, but tastes like it has just enough carbonation and alcohol content.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2003 What a stellar session beer. Don't expect Belgian bliss, but for a really great beer to drink all afternoon while working at just about anything, look no further.
Extraordinarily drinkable American brown.

Cola brown, not much head or lacing. Feels a little thin, refreshing and malty, very mild hop flavor. Finishes well. Beer of the Month club.

Bottle. Pours a very deep brown with a short lasting tan head. Aroma is of toasted malt. Flavor is malty with some nut and molasses. I originally got into brown ales after trying Newcastle and this is definitely more flavorful, more malt but for some reason i still like Newcastle better.

I enjoy this brown ale from Lost Coast. Very smooth for a brown ale. I usually order this for a second or third beer.

We conducted a blind taste test with this beer and 5 other brown ales to objectively determine which one was best. The 5 beers were: Samuel Smith’s Nut Brown Ale, Lost Coast Downtown Brown, Big Sky Moose Drool, Newcastle Brown, and Wychwood Hobgoblin. You can view the video here:

Low caramel with a bit of roasty smell. No apparent hops.
Dark amber to brown color with very thin head.
Taste is somewhat watered down but i still get some of the malt and roastiness.Not much bitterness.
Palate is a bit thin for my taste with average carbonation.
To me this is an average brown ale but still pleasant to drink and a change from all the heavy beers i usually prefer.

I buy this at Whole Foods in Redwood City. It’s my favorite everyday beer. The dark brownitude is not overpowering, and there’s a nice subtle chocolateyness, but nothing too bitter.

12 oz bottle. Aroma of molasses. Pours dark brown, almost opaque with two-finger, large-bubbled, light brown head. Just the right intensity of brown sugary sweetness lasts and lasts. Nice tingle, pleasing fullness in mouth. A beer to sip, savor and have another.
