A strong American Brown ale with an aggressive hop presence. A manly beer named after the manly and quintessential Steve McQueen film. ďNot your fatherís brown aleĒ - A. Mason Brewer

Crushed at GABF í10. One hopped up brown, though thatís not all it has going for it. It has plenty of nutty and sweet caramel malt flavor to it as well. Not incredibly complex, but very tasty. But what else would you expect?

(Draught) Pours a hazy amber body with a medium cream head. Aroma of roasted malt, florals, cinnamon, and citrus. Flavor of grass, herbs, roasted malt, caramel, nuts, earth, and cocoa with a moderately bitter finish.

Brownish with tan head and one of the best Brown Ales I have had, but of course itís from FFF.

GABF 2010 - yes, Iím that far behind uploading my ticks. Pours hazy medium brown from the tap with a light beige head. The aroma is caramel malt - wort really - along with considerable herbal and citrus hops and nuts. Earthy and worty flavor with caramel, chocolate, nuts, and big hop bitterness. Slight citrus. Medium-bodied with average carbonation and decent smoothness. A nice "India Brown Ale" or whatever you call it.

Growler at Maltzillaís All American Weekend. Pours cloudy brownish color with tan head. Sour aroma with some coffee and chocolate. I think this oneís infected. Tart flavor with some caramel, light hops. Medium body with average carbonation.

Another sick growler provided by Diego. Rust colored pour with an off white head. Bitter coffee notes, this beer might be infected or perhaps was stored improperly.

17thfloor (2436) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 12, 2010
Draft at Hopleaf. Pours a clear brown with a bubbly fizzy head. Aroma is brightly hoppy, lots of citrus, light pine, with brown sugar notes, bit of nuttiness. Flavor follows, odd play of the bright citrus, rich caramel, and nuttiness, but overall really good. Medium bodied, avoids being syrupy, seems light and easy drinking for 7.7%.

DuffMan (7996) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 10, 2010
On tap. Dark brown, two-finger tan head. Aroma is roasty, with some grassy and citrus nuances. Flavours are nutty caramel with citrus hops and a medium bitterness. Iím not sure where this brew is trying to go, it could even fall into the black IPA category really. Anyway, it was pretty tasty.
