English Style, American Brown Ale. This ale is brewed with Caramel and Chocolate barley malts to give it its rich and Chocolaty English Brown Ale flavor.

27 July 2013, tap at Solvang Brewing Co. Brown, clear, steady bubbles. Nose is sweet bread malt and possibly some soft/brown bananas. Thin body and fizzy. Toasty malt and some bitter chocolate finish, possibly some blue fruit notes. Ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The label at the brewery says this is their 1547 Porter but by notes read like a brown ale. Some roastiness, maybe a hint of coffee to the aroma. Pretty light red color for a porter. This is easily the nuttiest of all their beers with some coffee hanging around. Decent.

Tap @ the brewcompany. Nice head with good duration. Color is dark brown. Aroma and taste are toasted malt, caramel,nuts and hops. Dry finish. Bartender told me that this was supposed to have been a porter and that is why the "coaster" said "1547 Porter", but they changed it to brown ale later as the beer menu lists it.
