A smooth, full-bodied nut brown ale, lightly hopped with a hint of roasted and crystal malts. This ale is dark in color without the heavy taste of porter or stout.

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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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: http://youtu.be/oz0hSSylY70

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. OK beer...

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.
