On tap at Twisted Taps, San Diego. Brownish with a tan head. Aroma of light roasted malt, nuts, some chocolate and caramel. Similar taste. The body was on the light side. Soft and easy to drink.

Boring brown ale with less honey than early Mariah. Brown pour with ok head. Caramel. Tap in Nashville thegreenrooster (4558) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 28, 2016
Pour is a dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is a pretty good roasted malt with a decent coffee. Flavor is more of a roasted malt with some bitter dark chocolate with some minor coffee notes. This is a rich a flavorful brown ale. Not a huge flavor profile but a lot of minor flavors coming together making this a above average brown ale. blipp (9691) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Draft. Pours brown with a beige head. Toasted bread, mild roast, a bit of malty sweetness, and low bitterness. Fine.

On tap at 83 degrees matthewjk (1128) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 28, 2016
Pours dark brown with a small beige head, some lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and caramel. Flavor of roasted malts, caramel and roast coffee, ashy
Very good showing for a lower ABV ale; it still manages to pack a lot malty flavor in there. Malty, toast, hazelnut, creamy, done! This is well executed. Serving size: pint can bhensonb (15758) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 3, 2016
Can from Bine & Vine. Pours brown with a tan head. Aroma is toasty/roasty caramel/light treacle. Something hints at cola. Med body or nearly. Flavor is earthy, hinting at chocolate and nuts - very treacle, tho in a dry way. It is much drier than I expected. Sadly browns are far from my favorite style, but I think this is a good one.

April 13th, 2014 - Benchmark is one of my new favorite brewery interiors, humble in its posture and tucked away into a nondeScript commercial area, and without any razzle-dazzle advertising, pithy slogans, or sass. It’s just beer in a light-hearted environment. We begin with the Brown Ale, a predictably brown brew the color of a dark coffee, a head that’s quick to retreat into disappearance, and a slight coffee and tobacco smell. The taste glass does us no favors in collecting and pushing the aroma, but I’ll make do. The flavor is surprisingly sweet, but in the way a light or medium roasted coffee from an Aeropress can accent sweeter flavors. It’s consistent throughout, delivering that one mildly sweet note, like a rich, dulcet piano key, struck again and again, long into an aftertaste, with an elegant fade that bounces around a concert hall before soaking into walls.
