COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark brown color, with a balanced aroma of roasted malts and Northwest-grown hops. The sweetness of the ale, crystal, and chocolate malts blend beautifully with the assertive flavors of Cascade and Mt. Hood hops.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2005
This might be the best brown ale I have ever tried. Citric hops on the nose. Nut brown pour with a nice fluffy head. The hops come through in the flavor, along with the caramel sweet malt. Slight chocolate and faint roastiness. A nice beer in a non-favorite style, tough to finish the entire bomber.

hopdog (9570) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2005
Poured a dark reddish-brown with a large (4.5 finger) tan head. Aromas and tastes of nuts, roasted malts, caramel and hops. Nice hoppy balance. Citrus. Body a little on the watery side. Lots of lacing left on the glass. Overall, a very god Brown Ale.

GermanBrews76 (679) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2004
nice lace. sticky, off white top adorns a dark amber brown body. fairly well hopped, but good balance. caramel malts and citrus hops, must be cascades. malt profile is more prominent in flavor. this is a very drinkable beer

TChrome (1435) - Bedford, Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2004
Pleasing aroma with notes of caramel, and roasted nuts. Pours very attractive medium amber with a well retained tan colored head and lots of lacing. Flavor is quite enjoyable with a rather refined interplay between a nice chocolate sweetness and a bit of spicy, hoppy bitterness. A style winner from a very nice brewery.

Reid (2033) - Salem, Oregon, USA - SEP 26, 2004
Ok my second bomber bought while camping o the Oregon coast. Nice enough brew to look at , dark brown.with a fair sized bubbly tan head that went down fast but left good lacing. Nice aroma a good blend of the dark chocolate like malts and the spritzy hop. Again the taste is well balanced with the nutty, chocolaty malts dominating at first sip then the hops( Cascade and Mt Hood) assert themselves on the last section of the sip. It says this is an "American Brown Ale" on the bottle and they are not wrong..the hops are very noticable compared to the more traditional English style browns. Its ok on the palate..but maybe a little on the thin side. Quite a nice "quaffer"..I would like to taste this on tap at the Pelican someday soon.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Pours very dark red with a fluffy ivory head that leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is faint, but malty and sweet. Taste starts malty and ends with a metallicy bitterness. Very thin mouthfeel, very unimpressed. I remember this beer being better the last time i had it, very thin and bland now.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Clear black cherry-like color with good head and lacing. Malty and slightly herbal nose. Smooth malty flavor with a hop bite at the end. Light body and a dry finish.
