This brown ale is thin and plain. There’s a bit of roasted malt flavor and that’s about all that it has to offer. Not much sweetness, richness, or nuttiness. Not much flavor or character at all, really.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Downtown Denver location. Pour is clear brown with a big tan head and great lacing. Bready, slightly roasty, brown malty, light coffee, biscuity, and earthy aroma. Taste is earthy, stale bread, spicy hops, toasted malt, light cocoa, and dough. Medium body with soft carbonation. Nothing offensive about it and very clean, yet uninspiring.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
draft. yeast dust, toasted bread crumb and nuts in the nose. medium-light body, a bit too flabby for it’s sweetness and carbonation. simple and sweet chestnut brown malt flavor with a light dusting of yeast and medium-low hop bitterness. a very basic beer with a watery finish and little to hold your interest, but lacks any overt flaws.
Earlier Rating: 8/16/2008 Total Score: 3.3
Draft @ DIA. Dark brown, somewhat cloudy, unfiltered, with a tan head. Decent nose of toasted grains, some chocolate malt, even some roast... notes of bready chocolate, charred toast, etc. Body is medium to light, dissolves on the back. Minimally astringent. Good presentation of roast for a brown ale, some charred bread, some cracked barley, cereal grains, etc. Nice enough for a brown ale.
