3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good malty sweet aroma that continues into the flavor. It ends pretty bitter for a brown though. Good medium bodied mouthfeel and overall a pretty good beer.
From May 2006
Poured from 12oz bottle(rom temp) a deep amber brown with a large head of foam that dissipated quickly leaving a fine layer that stayed for the entire session.
The smell is a nice roasted malt nose with a touch of nuttiness.
The taste is a very nice semi sweet roasted malt with some nuttiness and chocolate tones. Yumm...this is one good Brown Ale.
Bottom line: This is a very drinkable and flavourful Brown Ale that I can easily find and recommend. I think I'll stock up on it! ;^) slowrunner77 (12804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 21, 2014
"Biscuity indeed. More refreshing than most browns, and very well balanced. I’ll buy this before just about any other brown...it’s still a brown, so don’t expect it to knock your socks off, but it’s good, and highly drinkable."

I like this beer! It’s great in hot weather, really drinkable. It’s a great lighter brown ale. Always drink it with good friends. Thorpe429 (5122) - , Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2011
Reviewed from notes.
Poured into a pint glass. The color is a moderate brown with a slight bit of murkiness. Good head and lacing. The nose brings forward some caramel, toffee, light nuts, and some mild fruit. The taste is bready with a bit of caramel and toffee. Good body and carbonation, this is a pretty nice brown ale and quite sessionable as well.

Pours a medium to light brown, nose is nutty and earthy, taste is mild on sweetness, good biscuit and nutty flavors.quite nice. popery (2231) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 29, 2010
Nice looking dark and dusky red liquid with a good off-white head and lots of lacing. Pleasant, natural aroma. The flavors work in concert, rather than separately. The aroma has a lot of malt with a great nutty background. Very good beer. Light and nutty flavor. It’s a good brown ale, if not a highly complex one. Every beer doesn’t have to be a jigsaw puzzle and this beer works definitely accomplishes its goals. Feel is a bit thin, perhaps. There’s nothing really wrong the feel given the abv. A very sessionable beer. Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 15, 2010
12 oz bottle. Warm brown in the glass, with red burst of color when held to the light. Murky, with cream colored head to lace. Nose is sweet malt and brown sugar and alcohol, like a barleywine. Taste is much lighter than nose. Definite sweetness, and very light malt. Fairly empty finish. I’ll have to let it warm, but as of now, the nose is better than the mouth. waltersrj (280) - Washington, USA - JAN 12, 2010
Pours a deep brown with a nice off white head. The nose is biscuity, malt, and roasted grains. The taste is sweet malt, some low bitter notes, caramel, and nut. This is a good cheap brown ale.
