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.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2009
Bomber. Unimpressive orange/brown with thin beige head. Aroma is brown sugar and alcohol prevalent and nuts. Flavor is nutty and malt heavy but without much depth. Lighter bodied for brown. sweeter finish with little bitterness

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Bottle: Copperish amber pour with an off white thin head. Sweet nutty aroma with a vague grainy character. Light body and mild flavor with a touch of fruity esters. Grainy nutty notes with a very mild hop presence (hardly detectable). Lacking the malt depth/nuance that makes a good Brown Ale. A bit too simple.

Bottle courtesy of jbye4334 that I took to Peter’s tasting. Pours a clear brown with a thin white head. Light malt on the nose and a little bit of hops. Light to medium body, little bit of roast and toasted malt. Finishes up with some nice toast notes and a light bitterness.

Pretty nutty aroma. The flavor is lighter than most nut browns but is also better in that regard. Really easy drinking.

I’ve long heard the stories of the seasonal release of the rare pinon nut brown ale that poured at the brewery but nowhere else and behold a bottle appeared on the shelves. chestnut pour with very thin head. nutty, caramel, light dark fruits, coffee and toffee aroma. light body and a bit thin. flavor is solid and enjoyable. sweet and toasted. they could take this one to another level.

drjay44 (3709) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUL 24, 2009
22 oz. bottle. Vintage 2009. Pours a thin non lasting head over a clear medium brown (SRM 28) body.....nose is light coffee, cocoa, bit of hop....taste is initially sweet malts, then coffee/chocolate finishing with mild hop bitterness which lingered with the roasted malts, and a suggestion of nuttiness....mouth feel is light and somewhat watery, carbonation average. This is a somewhat light take on a Nut Brown.
