SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - AUG 27, 2005
On tap. Brown hue, dominated by roastiness in the middle and a sweet, malty finish. Drinkable, with a thin palate. Nothing great but I would drink this again.

DYCSoccer17 (3613) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 9, 2005
Tap at Solana Beach. Sweet, roasty, caramelly nose with mild licorice notes. Transparent dark amber color with a small off-white head. A bit thin to start. Nice choco-roastiness in the middle. Finishes thin and watery. Disappointing after lots of potential.

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.

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.

MartinT (9191) - 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 (3051) - 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
