COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Brown Ale has a touch of nuttiness provided by our good friends Mr. and Mrs. Victory and Munich Malt. The addition of Northern Brewer, Cascade, and Willamette hops smooth this beer out to create an incredibly drinkable Brown Ale.

Pretty good beer and clever name. Nice bottle but the beer tastes like water. I don’t think it is too stout but if you drink enough then you will be buzzin’.

jgentgesdo (668) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 26, 2005
Pours coca-cola brown with almost no head. Nose is best part - initially almost meaty, olive and coffee notes. The flavor is almost like shiner bock with a little extra smokiness thrown in - slightly smoky/roasted malt and coffee, biting unpleasant end - dreck.

Nice aroma of nuts and roasty malts. But boy went downhill from there. Body dark color no head to speak of. Had a watery half sweet maly flavor to it. Roasty aftertaste but nothing special.

if there was a beer that you wouldnt drink, but only smell, this would be that beer. smells great - nutty, coffee, chocolate, rich, and malty. taste is weak, retains very few characteristics of the nose, and is not really malty like a brown ale should be. a disappointing beer that has tremendous potential if the taste was beer.

Pour is dark ruby brown with a tan head...smell is richly malty with some nuts and definately caramel...taste is metallic and sharp...disappointing to say the least...

Pours deep brown with medium off-white head. Caramel malt aroma withy hints of toffee, almonds, and cinnamon in the aroma and taste. Some hops in the finish. Light to medium palate.

beerguy101 (5286) - Newark, California, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Dark brown color. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is caramel malts slightly sweet. A medium bodied brown ale. Malts are nutty and sweet. Hops are slightly bitter. A little thin tasting and the flavors kind of dissipate quickly. There is also a touch of cardboard here as well. Not a great effort. Drinkable, but nothing very notable of interesting. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - MAR 22, 2005
Pours a very dark chocolate brown. Nice bountiful malty aroma. Flavor is fairly malty, not too full bodied.Pales on the mouthfeel. Definitely needs more. Light on the aftertaste. a little too thin.

TChrome (1418) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2005
Beer pours dark amber color with a well retained off white head. Aroma is sweet malt with a little caramel and light roasted peanuts. Flavor is also sweet malt, but is too thin and the finish just basically dies. The flavor starts out then just vanishes. This beer has potential but needs more bigger flavors.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 19, 2005
The beer emigrates from the 12-ounce brown bottle a somewhat hazy brown with a portly light tan head that is semi-creamy in texture as it fades away; the lace forms a concealing blanket upon the glass. Nose is malt with light caramel tones, fresh and somewhat tobacco like, start is lightly sweet and the malt profile light to moderate with the top light in its feel. Finish is mildly acidic, the hops benign in their spiciness, somewhat sour aftertaste is also dry, a drinkable beer, but not a real hit with me.
