Not bad at all. My bottle says "American Brown Ale," and I’m not sure exactly what this means. More hoppy, perhaps, than the Euro varieties. Not as much malt forward. Quite good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoy by July 27, 2014.
It pours brown with reddish highlights, a good 2 finger head of foam that shrinks slowly, leaving almost a complete layer on top of the beer.
The smell is a mix of roasted malt, a hoppy bitterness that almost borders on being fruity, and some notes of sweet malt.
In the taste, there seems to be a nice balance amongst the smells I noted above. It’s very smooth and tasty and very easy to drink. I just reviewed another Brown Ale that was more assertive with the hop bitterness and I liked it a lot, but this is JUST as enjoyable, in different ways.
On the light side of medium bodied, on the lower side of medium carbonation, the mouthfeel is good.
A very nice well made brown Ale. I enjoyed it.

Poured from tap to glass. Deep copper brown hue with white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is malt, caramel, mineral, biscuit, honey. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and zesty carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness with an astringent following and clean finish. Overall a decent brew.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark brown color with a smallish off white head. Nose has some nice toast and caramel in there, and is rather inviting. Taste is nice and toasty with just a bit of sweetness and bitterness. Really pleasant.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
translucent chestnut, cream ring. Stale grain and marshmallow sugar nose, burnt roast acidity blurring details. Flavor is equally flat, front showing brown sugar and grain before caramel mid, sweet and lightly syrupy through the light plastic end, faintly burnt.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the Tap Room in Tillamook. Gentle roast malt nose with yeast. Glowing reddish/brown, tan head, good lace. Very good roast malt initial / goes creamy and then suddenly the malt erupts / grass, mild chocolate, and cookies in finish. Medium body. Very smooth and flavorful. This is a very good one, in what is usually a fairly boring style. The best of the seven brews -- except for the Tsunami Stout -- I tried at Pelican.

Pint pour on draught. Dark brown with orange highlights and off-white head. Roasted malt aroma. Flavor of roasted malts, medium bitterness, and ricg underlying sweetness as the glass warms. Very nice. Definitely worth drinking again.
