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.

Bottle, purs a clear brown with a ice fluffy light tan head. Tanic aroma of some woody hops and light toasted malt. flavor is like a bitter brown ale. A bit sharp and biting and a light fairly dry feel. Clean and crisp, just a flavor profile I couldn’t get used to.

Chocolate-covered pine needles? Hey whatever, it works. Taste seems to veer between sweet and bitter with every swig.

drpimento (2179) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Pretty good America Brown to me. Poured at a good temperature with a mammoth, foamy, frothy, fluffy, light tan head that lasts for a while and lots of lace. Color is a clear amber brown. Aroma is very mild, malt, and roast. Flavor’s like nose, carbonic tang up front, followed quickly by bitter, then just as quick sweet with an overall hop malt nut sweet. Body is of the classic good standard. Finish is short, like flavor, and drinkable.

jstraw (1906) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Clear dark red with fair, creamy, tan head / Mild, sweet nose of brown sugar, chocolate, and bread / Medium body, sweet, filtered, and malty, bock-like, with mild hopping and good, somewhat bitter finish / Clean flavors of spun sugar, chocolate, nuts, and coffee / Much sweeter, malty, and filtered than a traditional brown ale, but good.

hopscotch (8890) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Bottle… Pours clear, dark and dirty orange when held to light. Mid-sized, fluffy, off-white head. Great retention. The aroma is a happy, American-style marriage of caramel malt and light notes of chocolate, grapefruit and spicy hops. Medium-bodied with dancing carbonation. The flavor leans just a touch toward the bitter side of balance, offering moderate notes of caramel and milk chocolate intertwined with citrusy, spicy bitterness. Finishes crisp and lightly bitter.

Dark brown with a slight burnt malt bitterness. A decent tan head with some hops that make the ride balanced.

22 oz bottle. Pours a deep brown color, 1/2" of pale brown head. Roasty and nutty, malty sweet with a nutty finish and lingering hop bitterness. Medium body. Smells of roast malt and nuts. Very complex and flavorful for a brown ale.

Tap at Pelican. Pours to a mahogany brown body with a starch white head. The aroma is of caramel and grains with a subtle milk chocolate. Flavor of deep roasty malt with a nice toast and lemon zest like hops. Chewy medium palate. Nutty.

BMan1113VR (7834) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Bottle from the brewery. Pours with a clear copper to brown hued body with a small, off-white head. Aromas are nutty, chocolate, brown sugar, and a light spiciness. Flavors are pretty hop forward, spicy, American hops, pine, chocolate forward over dark roast characters. Nutty. Takeaway: nuts and pine. Medium to lively bubbles, medium bodied. Good.

22415brewery (371) - redmond, Washington, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Pours a dark dark chestnut brown, fairly clear with a slow dissipating head. Is it suppose to be a Dark Mild an English Brown Ale or an American Brown Ale? A touch of sweetness, a bit of tobacco, some savory mild character along with a fair bit of piney aroma make this a very drinkable "brown" ale. Hinting at tobacco, yet full enough to be a pleasing session beer. Northwest hops play a prominent role, lending a distinctinve finishing note. Pleasing to the palate, not overwhelming.
