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.

reggiedunlop (3290) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Pours brown with a medium tan head...nice lacing and retention. Aroma has light roastiness and dry leaves. Flavor follows suit...adds nutty notes and a bit of chocolate and some earthy hops. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry roasty/dry leaves/earthy hoppy finish.

A good basic standard ale. Agree with the dark malty flavor as described. First choice--no but not a bad choice.

Oakes (12849) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2014
Dark brown, thin head. Has a strongly nutty character. Low bitterness, more tartness than I would like, though the nuttiness is good.

Maxbier (444) - Maryland, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Dark brown pour from a can. Thick tan head. Roasty malt aroma, some molasses aroma. Roasty malt and some caramel. Hint of hop bitter but definitely not the dominant flavor. Better than average brown.

"Definitely not your standard brown. Doesn’t do anything different, just better. Subtle aromas of nuts, caramel and chocolate. Light hops. Medium bodied and smooth. Flavor is robust and subtle at the same time. Bittersweet finish."
