COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A 2002 Bronze Medal Winner in the North American Brewers' Association competition. This northern Arizona favorite has a consistent nutty flavor with just a hint of spice in its depths. A slowly emerging bitterness crops up along the way and is unobtrusively incorporated into the smooth flow. It finishes with a gentle nuttiness and spiciness. Excellent with sandwiches and subs.

Ruby light brown. Big fluffy beige head. Cocoa. Toast. Nutty. Berries. Bigger light body. A bit of roast. A hint of sweetness. No bitterness. A fine classic brown ale, but its a style in desperate need of some innovation.
