Is a beautiful deep amber/brown in color, reminiscent of the most noblest of not only American, but also Bristish Browns. The complex malty flavor comes from the 6 distinct grains that make up the grain bill. Add a Willamette hop finish, and you get a brew that compliments any occasion.

obguthr (6242) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Nutty aroma with caramel undertones. Clear brown , thin yellow head, good lacing. Tart and grainy, nice roasty character, but the astringency is a turn-off. Its ok.

Pours brown with tan head and some lacing. Very pleasant notes of wheat and nuts. Well balanced taste; nutty flavor shines. Smooth and sessionable.

ChainGangGuy (4888) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 8, 2010
22 ounce bottle - $4.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Appearance: Pours a hazed, relatively dark brown body with a modestly-sized, suds, off-white head. Smell: Notes of spicy-scented dried herbs and a slim helping of slices of apricot overlayed with scents of toasted grains and roasted nuts. Taste: Roasty, toasty, charred nut maltiness, but not particularly complex. Very small, lightly sweet hint of brown sugar along with a tangy apricot fruitiness on the front end. Hops providing an earthy black pepper-like spiciness and backing of dried herbs and a noted bitterness. Drying, spicy, earthy finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Simple and reasonably satisfactory as far as brown ales go, though, by no means a home run for me, as there is a whole host of browns Id reach for over this.

dwyerpg (6033) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Smells kind of soapy; not so good. The flavor is very simple. A bit of malt body, very smooth. N0t complex, but a tasty dinner beer.

mattdev (74) - Oregon, USA - NOV 22, 2010
Pours a clear dark brownish red with a thin head and slight lace. Head dissipates to a thin haze over the top of the beer. Smells a tad roasty with big oats and potatoes. Some slight metallic smells. Taste has some caramel on the front, with a toasty midpalate and a burnt flavor on the back of the tongue. No hop flavor, but a slight bitterness at the end. Almost a garlic/onion flavor. Im guessing DMS.

Couleur ambre, mousse beige. Alcool est de 6.0% sur la bouteille. Sympa comme bire, note de malt; les 6 grains sortent bien en mettant la donne sur un profile bien malt, biscuit/caramel avec une prsence de caf/grill allant vers le moka tout en gardant un lger arrire-got de houblon. Pour le prix en magasin, cest vraiment une trs bonne ocaz et une bonne exprience. Je pense que avec une touche en moins de houblon cette bire aurait t superbe, ceci reste mon avis.

jercraigs (10303) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2010
2010-07-01. Crisp brown body, modest beige head. 3+ Flavour is milder and more dilute than expected. Malt is nice at first but finishes grainy rather than toasty brown ale character one might expect. Modest aroma, touches of a nice caramel character over a tangy grainy malt profile. Average palate. Bit odd. On tap at Diamond Knot, Mukilteo
