"a decent enough nutty malty brown ale. light in body and flavor, but what is there is nice, and makes for a decent session ale...nothing less, nothing more."

Draft. An amber beer with a thin tan head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel and metal as well as a light note of something skunky, leading to a dry and metallic finish.

Sample at the brewpub on 8/7/10. Clear reddish copper pour with a medium tan head. Grainy and malty aroma with a bit of roast and not much hop. Dank and nutty flavor with some roast at the end.

I’ve had this in the bottle and on tap on several different occasions. On tap would probably be my favorite. My rating on this will be on the bottled version. A medium sweet (undefined) aroma. Reminded me a bit of smelling a sugar bag, with a touch of vinegar. Appearance is a chalky brown, off-white head with a medium thickness to it. Flavor has that odd acidic/vinegar like quality, but mostly it’s lightly roasted, with a touch of nut and malt to it. Easy to drink, but I think I’ll stick with this on tap.

Bomber from Brew It Up. It’s too bad this brewery gets a bad rap on the ratings system. The brown was exceptionally smooth, although medium-bodied. There’s really no carbination to speak of, but I tend to like that. Good palate, enjoyable brown.

DTM (870) - Vacaville, California, USA - JAN 6, 2009
Bottle from Brew it Up! in Sacramento, CA. Poured a brown color with a small head. Nutty flavor with a hint of chocolate. Medium bodied beer that was very even on the palate. Good beer.

~Pours a brownish amber color with small creamy head. ~Has a mild malty scent. ~Has a toasted malt flavor and maybe chocolate? ~Medium feel, light bitter finish. Roasted flavor is strong and distinct. Pretty good brew. Scent was definitely lacking.
