Light brown in color, this ale is quite malty. While the hop flavor is generally lower than that of the other ales.

Part of a flight at the brewery - whiskey brown color. The aroma reminded me of Brach’s candy as it is very sweet. Malty sweet taste as well. A little like brown sugar. If I weren’t such a huge fan of the IPA I’d probably have a full glass of this one.

On tap at the brewery. Clear brown pour with a white head. Great nose with nutty/earthy bouquet. The taste follows suit. Good light toasted malt notes. Excellent mouthfeel. Very good body. This IS what a brown ale should be.....

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2014 On tap at Pour 24 up the escalator from the casino in New York, New York, Las Vegas. Showed a clear & bright, walnut tone, with thick, persistent head froth, and spots & spiraling rings of lacing. The nose was toasted, smooth malt, light grain, nutty, light caramel, with a touch of toffee & chocolate. The taste was similar notes, but more roasted, with some nice creaminess to the mouthfeel. Light+ bodied, with decent carbonation, maybe a bit watery, and washed out texture-wise, and lightly dry with a hint of sulfur on the finish. Not a bad Brown, though.

On tap at Pour 24. Pours a clear amber with small creamy beige head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is a bready malt and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with a brown sugar and caramel. Easy to drink a decent brown ale from Tenaya Creek.

Draught at Pour 24 New York New York in Las Vegas. Lots of roasted malt and caramel in the aroma, sweet and inviting. There are lightly bittered chocolate flavours with hints of vanilla, butterscotch and caramel. All adds up to a good tasting beer with lots of flavours and a well structured finish that leaves you wanting more.
