COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our American brown ale has a light but crisp bitterness with a slight nutty flavor. Special roast and chocolate malts were used to impart the dark brown color and complex flavors. This is a true session beer and a wonderful representation of the style. Northern Brewer and Cascade hops.

Can from Sugaya. Roasty, dark nutty nose, with some light chocolate, and a hint of coffee. Light translucent brown color. Gentle toasty malt, substantial chocolate throughout. Gets earthy and dirty in mid palate. Light citrusy hopping. Thin-medium body. Nearly dry in finish. Tasty and interesting.

Ernest (6162) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread/nuts, cookie, caramel, coffee), with light notes of vanilla, dirt, vegetables. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Somewhat promising nose (a touch dirty and vegetal, but otherwise nice malt character), and looks nice, but it’s terrible in the mouth...thin, watery, dirty, and very sour. Yet another dumper from MBC.

onceblind (3966) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Deep dark brown under a foamy off-white head. Nutty dark malty nose with a wee touch of charred cocoa. Smooth and toasty flavor with a light kiss of char, some cocoa, biscuitiness, and dark nuttiness. A touch light but quite tasty.

Theydon_Bois (7944) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2014
Keg at the brewery tap room in Maui, 23/04/14. Mahognany brown with a moderately appointed light tan covering. Nose is toffee, sweet tones, light roast, hint of cocoa, biscuit crumble. Taste comprises toffee fudge, light vanilla, dark malt, sprinkle of cocoa powder. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close, subtle hop presence. Ok as browns go I guess!

BrettTaylor (464) - Radford, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2014
Poured as a taster at local shop from can. Aroma - green pea.... yes, green pea. I don’t know if my glass just wasn’t getting rinsed enough between tries or what, but other people tasting said the same. -shrug- There’s some nice chocolate and malt notes underneath, but the green pea aroma was just too weird. There was also some green pea taste as well as some nice rich chocolatey/malt flavors. Without the green pea aroma and taste I would have rated this higher. Probably will try again from a full can and see what happens.
