A very malty and nutty aroma; slight iron presence as well. Great maltiness and well balanced. Very drinkable.

This dark brown malty ale showed average qualities, but with a good finish. The head was thin and not long lasting, however it did have a pleasant but demure aroma. I enjoyed the slightly syrupy/oily flavor and itís quenching mouthfeel. Not a hoppy present beer either, but in review it simply didnít stand out like others that prominently poke at the senses.

Coming into this beer with the knowledge that itís hoppier, I enjoyed it much more. Good balance, slightly toasty and bitter. You can tell this beer "Nice body, sweetheart", and it doesnít haul off and kick your ass, then sue you for sexual harassment.

Has a dark brown color and a malt smell. Taste is of malt and finishes with a nice bitterness. Overall this was a good brew...

I thought this was quite nice. A pretty reddish dark brown appearance with a quickly dissapating head. Aroma had some warm brown sugar hints along with some nuttiness. The flavor was full bodied with nuts, brown sugar, malt and caramel.

Cascade brown ale. Not wholy impressive. Fine for a session ale. I prefer hoppier examples.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Found at Jungle Jimís in Fairlfield. Pours a dark amber with very little head and minimal lacing. Aroma is sweet malt and a little fruit. Flavor consists of malt, nuts, and caramel and tasted better as I let it warm. Overall not fantastic but a solid Brown Ale.

Lightly hoppy yet very enjoyable. Amber colored with a relatively heavy alcohol taste. A small off taste of something which is reminiscent of chlorine. Hmmm ... till a decent beer. Especially when following something as strong as Dogfish World Wide Stout.

Nice sweet malty aroma. Seems like they should have gone either way with the carbonation. Could use a little more or a little less. Greater hopping makes this more flavorful than other brown ales.
