Tap at the Natomas location. Pours brown with a creamy off-white head. Slight roast malt aroma. Med body/mild carb. It’s rather fruity with "brown" roasted malt, and there’s enough bitter to offset the sugar.
Earlier Rating: 1/2/2007 Total Score: 2.8
Musty, malty aroma of an American Brown Ale - maybe a bit light. Dark reddish copper color with a substantial beige head. Starts a bit sweet, followed by a leafy, dusty vegy taste. Don’t think there is any hop. All weed. Actually a bit ongoing sweet in the finish. Sort of coats the tongue. It is what it is.
