COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unlike the sweeter brown ales of england and other US microbreweries, this brown ale is dry and hoppy with a roasty finish. This amber dark beer is quite drinkable because it is less sweet and not as dark and thick as a stout porter.

A big, roasted but aroma with some iron to it. Smooth caramel and chocolate are overwhelmed by a pretty intense bitterness. A lot more than I was expecting.

On tap at Corvallis brewpub--Dry and hoppy amber colored beer with a nice roasted aftertaste. It appears that OT is more concerned with flavor than alcohol content in their beers. Nice!

The guy pouring beers made a point to tell me it was only a brown ale NOT a nut brown ale. Well this beer had a huge nutty and malty aroma. Flavor a bit on the dry side. Smooth mouthfeel. The best they had on tap at the deli.

Pours a dark brown with a good sized persistant head which leaves a nice lacing. The aroma is sweet malt with a few fruit notes. The taste is dominated by sweet caramel malt with a lot of roasted malt which adds complexity and bitterness. There are some faint chocolate and fruit notes. This beer has a nice medium body and is quite drinkable.

This was incredibly rich and nutty, with some great malt character and slight sweetness on the tip of the tongue. Hazelnuts and fresh maple syrup make up the flavor with a rich creamy mouthfeel. A little too cold when I tried it but very well made.

Draft at the brewery. A very well-made classic style brown ale, and I think the Oregon Trail house yeast (not sure exactly what it is) fits this beer the best. This brown ale is wet and sweet up front with ample maple and a light nutty spice note, changing to a more dry and starchy finish across the back of the tongue. Very flavorfull when fresh, and very well-made.

Tap at Produce Row. Pours a deep, but clear, brown color. Very nice off-white head forms and lingers, consisting of very fine bubbles. Good lacing left behind. Aroma is fantastically nutty and chocolatey. Medium bodied. Roasted grains, chocolate, light coffee and nuts in flavor with a more than adequate hop bitterness in the finish. Quite well done for a brown ale.
