Tap @ Solana. I can’t stand brown/mild ale but this was on the sample tray. What the hey its another number to my small lineup. Brown/mild ale proves there is a devil....sorry. (no bad reflection on P.P).

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 1, 2005
Draft at brewpub. Dark brown, clear and almost opaque, small beige head diminished to nothing. Roasty, nutty bitter aroma and flavor. Dry tasting, but not bad. Light to medium body and ample carbonation. I have to say that I had this beer immediately after the sweet and flavorful Shark Bitten Dbl Red, so my impression of the brown might be skewed a bit.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 Sampled@Port Solana: Dark brown with a small light tan head. Light nutty aroma. Flavor is lightly sweet and nutty with hints of cocoa. Light on the palate, but a nice mild (brown) ale.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JAN 20, 2005
Fairly clear reddish brown appearance, modest head formation. Creamy, malty dark fruit and chocolate aroma. Fairly mild on the palate, chocolaty and nutty with mild fruity flavors. Fairly dry with some spicy hops.

Medium brown color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is malt, dark fruit and sweet. A medium bodied mild. Malts are fruity, malty and sweet. Mild flavors. Slightly spicy hops. A nice mild. Would be a great session beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2004
Nutty toffee and roasted malt combine to create an interesting brown ale with subtle roasty bitterness…Great drinkability spiced with a few coffee beans…A morning quaffer if there ever was one…

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - AUG 3, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2004 (Draft: Pizza Port in Solana Beach, CA) Moderately malty and bitter with some light roasty malt flavor; Slightly sweet flavor but fairly dry and somewhat thin on the palate, but very carbonated; Lightly roasted malt aromas; Ruddy mahogany color is beautiful; Light tan head is huge on the pour and had to be scooped a few times to pour a full pint, but it gradually settles to a thin layer; Full coating of lacing; Decent beer, but kind of ho-hum and uninteresting

jeffin7 (612) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JUL 21, 2004
Pours dark. Aroma is roasted malt. Flavor is roasted malt, a little coffee, and a little dark fruit. Thin clean palate. I assumed it was a dark lager from how thin the palate was and how clean the taste was.

hopscotch (9060) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 12, 2004
On tap at Pizza Port, Solana Beach...Very dark, clear, cherry wood-colored ale. Small, creamy, off-white head. Chocolately aroma and flavor. Light-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish. Not at all bad for a mild. More like a nut brown.
