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.

On draught at Pelican Pub. A good balance of dark malt notes and a decent bittering from the hops.

Bill Becker (212) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JUN 29, 2014
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.

Salmoniform (454) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JUN 26, 2014
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 shared by Dan. Taste is a light chocolate brownie. Slightly toasty as it warms. Light on the mouthfeel. Above average brown ale.

maxwelldeux (3450) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 4, 2014
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.

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2014
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.

maekchu (1943) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 23, 2014
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.

Brentv (306) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 18, 2014
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.

mrhoppy (1284) - Santa Clara, California, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Medium brown. Rich and smooth texture; mild carbonation; really nice mouthfeel. Chewy-sweet malts with a lot of toast & roast. Mild coffee and dark chocolate. Complementing bitterness plus some background hop aromas. Nice flavors of toast linger. Enjoyable beer.
