Pours dark amber with a small off white head. Hoppy aroma with fruit basket and spicy caramel/toffee malts. The flavor is caramel malty and fruit. Very plummy with a strong hop bitterness in the end. A nice beer. CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 15, 2003
Pours a clear dark copper with a small off-white head. Light caramel malt and plenty of hops fill the aroma. Body is lightly sweet and full of western hops. Finishes dry and crisp with nice hop flavor. I wouldn't really consider this a brown ale, more of an amber mixed with an IPA. aspidites (1271) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Clean balanced amber with definite caramel and crytal malt. some residual sweetness with a toffee finish. Mild hop presence with some grass. IrishBoy (4233) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 17, 2006

Dark amber bronze with a thin tan pad. Sweet caramel, brown sugar and berries in the aroma. Straightforward, but likeable, flavour of nutty caramel with a fruity quality in the finish. Very good.

A- A nice golden brown hue which is crystal clear. Pours with a small 1 finger head that dissipates quickly and doesn’t leave much lacing.
S- The smell is sweet, roasted malts, raspberry, and various light and sweet fruits.
T- Very sweet with a slight hop bitterness. Roasted malts are prevalent, very characteristic of an english brown.
M- Crisp and highly carbonated in addition to being somewhat viscous.
D- This is a highly drinkable brew. I could drink pint after pint. golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - JUL 10, 2008
Draft at City Pub. Dark amber pour. Aroma is sweet fruity malt. The flavor is the same; pretty decent with some light roast as well. Good amber. Ethereal (2471) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 13, 2009
