Toasted malts with a hint of hopps. Clean finish. A bit on the thin side, but not a bad brown.

Nice brown ale with good color and head. Beer has a very nice toasted nose with good full malt. Full flavor of malt with a nice toffee thing going on. A very good beer.

I actually found a crude rating note of this beer the other day...I rated it before seriously getting into beer in the summer of '01 when in seattle. A somewhat average brown, but pretty good.

Medium brown color, small head. Toasted malts, mildly hopped, toffee-like taste. Finish is clean and light and somewhat dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter, with a toffee like maltyness.

I like this one. Just a little more malt and body would make it a classic.

Good as brown Ales go, a little on the light side for me. Malts and hops do stand out, but it just doesn’t click with me. Still a quite drinkable beer.
