COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cheyenne Cañon Ale, the latest incarnation of the ever-popular Piñon Nut Brown, will be released Friday, July 6th. This year’s batch is a beauty. With malty sweetness up front, and a hint of nutty fruit in the finish, it’s a smooth, velvety ale that hides its higher-than-usual 6.9% ABV. Best of all, it feels as good as it tastes because 100% of the profits from the sale of each bottle or pint will be donated by Bristol to the Friends of Cheyenne Cañon, a volunteer organization dedicated to preserving the natural resources of North Cheyenne Cañon Park.

Bomber. Toasted malt aroma with notes of caramel and pine nuttiness. Pours cloudy caramel brown colored with a thin tan head that has good retention and excellent lacing. Starts with rich caramel and toasted malt. Finishes smooth with a medium body and nice pine nut flavor. Pretty nice brown ale.

Bomber share thanks to Emily. Appearance: small reddish white head that diminishes quickly, light reddish brown color, very cloudy, Aroma: coffee, chocolate, dark fruit, caramel, roast, floral hops. Palate: medium body, thin watery texture, average carbonation, pretty short duration finish. Taste: malty/grainy sweetness with a little bit of bitterness that lingers for a second or two. Overall, not too impressed. The watery palate feel was a turn off, but the aroma was nice.

Bomber bottle labeled Cheyenne Cañon Ale Piñon Nut Brown poured a dark brown w/ a piney, nutty toasted malt and coffee aroma. Flavor is more pine, coffee and some caramel malt. Body light to medium. Nice sweetness level for a brown with a lasting finish.

brokensail (16436) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Dark brown color with a khaki colored head. Sweet toffee and caramel malt with a touch of vanilla. Decently nutty with some earthy hops. A bit of toast and a fair amount of bread. The flavor is a bit watery. Not quite as nutty and toasty as the aroma. Bit of toffee and caramel, maybe some bread. Mild hop flavor and bitterness. Kind of bland.

nsquishee (641) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Bitter cinnamon, hazelnut, oak, and hop flavors. Clear brown color with a lingering lacy head. Ok.

here is a very nice nut brown. Pours nice brown color with good frothy tan head, nice lacing. Aroma of hazelnut, soft bark, caramel, cashew. Deliciously smooth, wouldn’t guess it was 7%, with a nice creamy, caramel, nutty flavor, and a lingering finish. Nice.

3.2
p1meatloaf (256) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - SEP 15, 2011
Bought from brewery poured into a pint in San diego. Looks clear auburn. Smells of some caramel and brown spices. Tastes a hell of a lot like my first all extract homebrew. Very smooth and drinkable at first with a nuttyish brown taste. It then gets heavier on the palate bringing in the hop spread. Pretty good beer overall 6.5 of 10.
