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.

Terminus (3239) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - FEB 13, 2005
bottle-pours a crimson amber hue with a small white head. aroma of carmel, toffee, and honey roasted cashews. The flavors were terrible-wet carboard and sourness. tastes like the malts and hops were old when this beer was brewed. body was thin and flimsy like most ska beers. probably the worst beer i have had from this brewery. Squidget must have got a good bottle of this (fresh?)

FlacoAlto (3800) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Bottled on Date of January 2, but I am pretty sure this is a mistake as this beer does not taste like a three year old beer, in fact it is far to light to have lasted this well.

This beer pours a clear ruby amber color with a light brown head. The aroma is malty with roasted notes, biscuits, caramel and even perhaps a hint of cherry fruitiness. The body of this beer is light, actually a bit lighter than I was expecting. The taste is a mix of malty sweetness, lightly roasted barley notes, and a cherry like fruitiness. There is certainly nothing wrong with this beer, and it does have a nice mix of fresh flavors, but it is a bit thin and it is missing a little something.

Bottle pourd a dark coke color with no head. Aroma was of light malt, toasty, Flavor is a bit roasty, chocolate,malt. Has a bit of a funny metalic flavor on the finish. not bad at all.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 30, 2005
in the bottle. looks like a coca-cola. not much a head, what’s there has big bubbles and dies quickly. Aroma of diacyl. finishes with a little bit of a tongue bitterness. Medium carbonation. Overbearing chalky flavor. This style of beer seems to consistently for people who want to drink a beer of style and distinction, but don’t have the tastebuds for it.

Pours with light brown, two-fingered bubbly head, fades slowly and leaves a good lace. Light-medium carbonation. Light bodied. Deep amber color. Not much of a nose. Starts hoppy finishes very hoppy and bitter. $1.69 for a 12oz bottle from Super 7-Even Raleigh, NC.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
GABF draft. Great head. Clear copper color. Quite nutty palate! Nice and bitter finish. Needs some work on the body though.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 14, 2004
Clear, light brown body, big, creamy, fuzzy head. Aroma:nice and nutty, maybe woody, too, touches of cocoa, perhaps... Taste: very mild, small, no, no hops, good malt, solid body, but ultimately thin. Little texture, too, with a scant finish, nothing stands out, nothing really pleases, either. Which, darn it, is what I look for in a brew, not just inoffensive drinkability, which this provides aplenty. Seems to fall into the "mild ale" style of English brown ale, and that should be warning enough for me. Perfectly ordinary, this is, and that makes it a bit of a let-down, for I did enjoy their porter pretty well and still look forward to more.
