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.

A very average brown. Pours a light burgundian amber with a sopay off white head. The aroma is a bit nutty with toffee and caramel malts. Light grassy and slightly citrus hops. Good balance with a medium body. The flavour profile is a bit bland overall with a mild bitterness.

mcberko (8496) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2015
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a dark reddish brown with a small off-white head. Nose brings out toasted malt and toasted nuts, with a medium hop profile. Flavour is earthy and sort of muted, with toasted nuts and dirty earthy malt. Not bad but pretty standard brown.

smroush (103) - Michigan, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Quite dark brown color with a sparce white head. Aromas are all malt with notes of nuts, molasses and chocolate. Hops are very light; a bit of dough from the yeast. Body is medium; moderate to heavy sweetness. Overall a fairly typical brown ale - sweet and malty.
