Bottle, Honolulu. Clear brown in color with foamy, light tan head. A solid, safe beer. Not much up front, some hints of bitter chocolate and slightly bitter on the back, but not the usual SV over hopping. I enjoy this beer and it will be good in early autumn when it is still a little warmer.

bottle pours brown with a medium off white head. Aroma is tons of bread and doughy malts, some chocolate malts and citrus hops. Flavor is rich and chocolaty, very malty base but a nice and refreshing hop presence that cleans the palate in a dry lightly spicy finish. Nice.

A tasty brew, not strong, but not weak, pretty much as expected for a brown ale. Enjoyable bitterness and dark brown color, this is a good brew. Went great with spicy cheese. Sierra Nevada is a great brewery.
