COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer starts at a relatively low gravity, and thus finishes with a low alcohol content (about 4.8%). Make no mistake though, it is by no means a light beer. It is rich with roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, and a touch of herbal hop flavors. It is made from a blend North American and British base malts with rolled oats, chocolate, brown and caramel malts. We finish it with a great big dose of earthy American hops (Sterling, Willamette, and Northern Brewer). 11.5°

xmarcnolanx (937) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Poured into a NB globe. Aroma is dense cocoa, herbal hoppiness, caramel, and some residual burn sugars. Nice! Taste is initially black patent malt, followed by a ton of biscuit and caramel, and an herbal sweet hoppiness rounds out the flavors. Very well balanced flavor-wise. Nothing extremely out of proportion except maybe the roastiness and the sugar level. 4.7 for a mild is kind of a high ABV. Finishes herbal and bitter and with a bit of sweetness, and a touch of sourness. Yum!

mcberko (17840) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2017
On tap at Dragoon, pours a clear dark copper with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out toasted bready malt and some light nuttiness. Flavour is like drinking toasted bready, with a bone dry plate. Nothing special, but it’s well made. Decent.

(En fût au Tap & Bottle Tucson): Le corps est définitivement touffu, les malts profondément enracinés et des fleurs tourbillonnent et labourre la terre. Beau et bon.

ajnepple (6622) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2014
On tap at The Perch Pub & Brewery. Dark brown and clear appearance with a lacy tan head. Mild earthy/herbal bitterness and light malty sweetness. Notes of light toffee, roast, caramel malts and light chocolate. A light and malty, smooth session ale

2.9
PartyFowle (954) - - SEP 15, 2014
Burnt orange, with good clarity and a feathery tan head. Good retention. Malty aroma: caramel, apples, wort/uncooked grain, hamster cage. Flavor is light, dry and nutty, with peanut skins, apple and wort. Light, watery body, clean finish. It is what it purports to be: a very mild brown ale.

4.2
mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - APR 16, 2014
One of the better brown ales I've had. Unusual in its hint of chocolate, which nonetheless is quite good. I wouldn't mind the flavor and ABV being notched up one or two pegs tho. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at Boulders on Broadway. Dark brown/red pour. Very subdued aroma, but fantastic taste of biscuity malts. Pretty tasty low abv option. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.3
kcorum10 (347) - Idaho, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Pours a brown/red color with off white head. Aromas of the wife’s fresh backed biscuits/bread with some roast and bitterness. Flavors of much of the same. Not a bad beer, but not my favorite.
