A very good brown. Big malt body that really emphasizes the roasted barley character. Not overly powerful that finishes well on the tongue with a little bit of bitterness. Well balanced.

2010-06-26. Dark brown body produces a creamy beige head with a swirl to rouse it. 4+ Pleasant but mild roasty - toasty malt in the aroma. 6+ Flavour is similar, milk toasty malt and roast character over a sweeter malt base. 7+ Smooth average plus palate, lightly carbonated. 3+ Simple but enjoyable and quite drinkable. On Tap at the brewpub, Portland.

On tap at the Roots Organic brewpub during ABA Beer Tour 07. This was a surprise to find a different brewpub’s beer at this location, so "fill ’er up!" Pours a clear coppery brown brew with an average off-white head that quickly dissolves to a fine film with a ring. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, with some earthy and flowery hops. Taste is lightly carbonated, ceamy and smooth with some multi-grain malt and some earthy hop bitterness. Finish is light and has a very dry hop aftertaste.

Deep amber to almost brown color. A thin head with a great aroma. This was a great brown ale with a malty background and a slight hop flavor. I liked this beer.
