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.

Reid (1946) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUN 30, 2005
Nice mahogany brown coloured ale with a small tan head, leaves wispy lace. Slightly nutty aroma, but mostly its of caramel malts, the nose was subdued at first due to the beer being served too cold. Quite a nice creamy, nutty, chocolaty brwn ale, with a hint of hops at the end, well carbonated. Pretty nice and smooth on the palate. Good drinkable brown ale, well done.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Amber with a foamy head and good lace. Very earthy aroma with some nuts and fruits. Bitter and woody flavors with nuts coming out again. Alcohol and roast malts as well. Decent palate with a medium body. Bitter hop and earthy finish.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Sampled draught at Old World Deli/Oregon Trail Brewing, Corvallis
Brown color, nice head, nose of light crystal malts & fruity hops. Light roast & a bitter hop flavor. The finish is a bit tangy & too bitter for me. Next!

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 13, 2004
2004 draught. Great mahogany brown appearance, mostly hazy with some light cherry reds peaking out and a small off-white head. Aroma of dark fruits and chocolate. Lightly salty and hoppy as well. Flavor is a mix of chocolate, sticky toffee, brown sugar and a strange almost beef jerky like saltiness. Ends dry and too watery. The yeast has gone mad and has some very strange notes, or is that stale hops? The roast seems a bit out of place on the light and watery finish. Starts out well but then just falls apart. That happens some times.

Tap@Oregon Trail. Sweet nuts and caramel, quite malty, like their others, it felt a bit empty, but it was drinkable.
