COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Snowshoe Grizzly Brown Ale is the darkest beer available at the brewery, with a distinct, roasted malt character, dark color and medium hop finish. It pours out a deep brown color with ruby highlights, the head Bunyanesque in size, semi-creamy in texture. The aroma is of lightly toasted grain, caramel, and black walnut sweetness. Grizzly Brown Ale is brewed with five different malts giving it a rich roasted flavor and a smooth finish.

Bottle. Deep brown pour with 1-finger tan head. Aroma of brown sugar,m caramel malt, almonds. Tastes caramel malty, nutty, brown sugary, not too sweet, with some finishing figgy fruits.

Light malty aroma, perhaps a hint of chocolate. Itís that malt aroma you found in chocolate malts! Deep reddish brown color with a monster persisting head. This may be unpasteurized. Thin mouthfeel. Starts with malt, goes to a very roasty toasty malt. Not a whole heck of a lot of hop here, but itís tasty.

Bottled. Slightly brown in color. Large head. A hint of chocolate. Not too good. Overly carbonated.

Somewhat thinnish brown ale. No heavy mouthfeel. A "lawnmower" beer for someone that wants a dark ale rather than a pilsner.

Nothing really good or bad about this beer. Aroma was probably itís strength which was nice. Notes of brown sugar, black walnut, toasted grain and some caramel were present. Appearance was dark brown with a bit of redness to it near the head. Mouthfeel was a little thin, which I didnít care for. Flavor was of roasted malts, but muted somehow. Hopes were barely there and it finished smoothly. Not bad, but nothing to make me buy again unless Iím stuck in the snow and this is all they have.

The bottle poured a clear dark garnet colored beverage with an average frothy light brown head that was mostly diminishing and left good lacing on the glass. The aroma was a complex balance of hops and malt. The malt was dominant, roasted and nutty with notes of caramel. The hops made only a light presence. The body was medium with an oily texture and lively carbonation. The flavor started off lightly sweet and bitter at the same time. The finish was average in length, slightly bitter and had a slight alcohol warmth.

Pours dark brown with a small offwhite head. Something that quickly became apparent about this brew is that it has a very porter-like quality to it. Itís like a mild porter but very thin body. Not your typical brown ale.

Dark brown beer with a decent head and small amount of lacing. The smell of this beer was the best thing about it. It lacked any true, stand out flavors and the coffee taste was so weak, it wasnít even worth it.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 9, 2005
Pours with a deep brown body topped by a medium thick head with some lacing. Itís sweet and very malty with a slight hop note, not all that great. Medium bodied and smooth.

Draft. Brown beer. Roasty chocolate flavor. Light aroma. Medium-light body. Easy drinking and refreshing. Malts come through.
