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.

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.

I sampled 3 beers, and got to choose one for a growler. This one was runner-up.

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.

Reid (2301) - 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.

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.

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.

3fourths (9107) - 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.

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.
