A nice flat brown colored pour. Not much of a nose, but a really nice light chocolatey flavor. More toasty malt than most browns I’ve had. Yummy.

Pretty much what you’d expect. Some nice toffee in the nose, maybe just a hint of herbal hops. Taste is a bit astringent, some ice tea and toffee.

22oz bomber from Trader Joe’s. Pours dark red with practically no head. Aroma of piney hops, bread and hints of coffee. Light-medium crisp body. Flavor of light coffee, brown sugar and some light earthy hops. Medium bitter finish. Quite boring brew.

A very good brown ale, nutty, malty and smooth. I rather like this beer and am tempted to push my scores up even higher. This beer pours a nice ruby color with a creamy, ecru head. Transparent. The aroma is molasses, caramel, nutty malt, mild prunes, cocoa and a faint citrus hop note. The flavor is nutty and moderately sweet, quite appropriate for the style, in my opinion. The mouthfeel is quite creamy, nearing oatmeal stout territory. For my money, Firestone nailed these two new Mission St. beers. These bottles are excellent values for good, fresh hefe and good, malty brown ale.

Really heavily malted brown ale. Pours deep brown and clear. Flavor just isn’t there in this one compared to others. A fair brew but nothing special.

Deep dark molasses grain aroma, reminds me of feeding horses. Dark ruby body, light tan head. Very robust toasty sweet grain, burnt on the edges, seems to defy gravity and resists the temptation to ooze on the tongue. Little chewy midpalate, fades away slowly, gently. People have run from brown ales so fast they’ve created a vacuum. and at 3 bucks a bomber, this fills that void spectacularly.

marcus (6436) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 27, 2010
Pours clear dark brown with a decent tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a smoked malt flavor that is a bit thin, and a dry bitter finish.

I am happy to report that this is a more than competent brown ale at $1.99 a bomber!! It pours a deep red with a one finger tan head that settles down quickly. The aroma is lager yeast - some berries, nuts, and toasted malt. The flavor is very toasted with hints of berry sweetness, chocolate, and a nutty finish. I definitely wouldn’t mind picking up a case of this.
