Had a mild hop aroma, probably from the centennial. Color was a dark clear brown. Taste was mediocre and not too complex. Fades into an unruly hoppy bitterness in the finish. BlackEyePA (573) - USA - JUL 18, 2012
well balanced brown ale, nutty, clean, smooth malt mouthfeel and slight toasted nut taste, hint of choco pretty decent awlcordell (5) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2013 does not count
Aroma is nice and rich. Color seems spot on, taste is good but nothing out of the ordinary. Middle of the road brown ale.

(tap) clear, bright amber colour with a small, white head; aroma of stewed fruit; balanced flavour with a long, light bitter finish; unexciting microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 28, 2003
A brown body with an off white head. The aroma is hoppy with some malts. There is maly in the flavor with a bitterness from the hops that lingers. An unusual brown in my opinion and definite void of the nut or chocolate malt in the description.

Pours a murky brown color with a tiny off-white head. Malty aroma with a faint hop presence. Taste is rather watered down tasting with just a slight hit of maltyness and a faint roastyness. Thin mouthfeel and very bland, makes me want to pass on this beer next time. Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 27, 2009
12 oz bottle shared with my buddy Nick. Light brown pour with a small tan head. Aroma is caramel malt with some slight roast and chocolate. Flavor pretty much identical, the caramel malt being the most prominent feature. Slightly dry finish. SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Draught at the brewhouse in Redmond. Clear brown with a creamy head. Light toasty malt in the aroma but not much. This flavor with just a touch of toasty malt and some alcohol spice. This body. Bland overall. This needs more body and malt character. Gription79 (2891) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle, thanks to Craig. Very light color with a thin head. Flavor of coffee and roasted malts. Very thin, watery beer. bulldogops (2502) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 3, 2016
