The beer its release from the 12-ounce brown bottle resides in the glass a somewhat murky mahogany color with the head Bunyanesque in size, creamy in texture and a toothsome light tan in color, as it slowly erodes the lace that forms becomes a thick and clinging sheet upon the glass. Nose is nutty sweet, fresh and crisp, hints of caramel and the start sweet with a personable malt presence, the top middling in feel. Finish is delightfully acidic, and the hops abundant but not overly so, a fine drinking beer, a nice thirst quenching beer on a hot Arizona afternoon.

Roasted malt backbone, nut and subtle wood accents. Sweet caramel note sewn in to a smooth, creamy silk body.

355ml bottle pours brown in color with a 2 finger off-white head that settles down to produce some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and light roasted malts with a hint of chocolate. Taste is light roasted malt bitterness with some caramel sweetness followed up with a mild hoppy bitter finish. Medium body with light carbonation. One of the better brown ales I have tasted over the years.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2008 Cool label on this 12 oz bottle that poured a nice dark brown with off-white head. Nose of dark malts and nuts. Rich mouthfeel, and flavors of caramel and roast nuts. Nice brown and easy drinking.
