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.

3fourths (9150) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2005
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.

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.

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!
