Barreras (1630) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Pours a medium brown color with a light caramel malt flavor. Taste is clean but watery. A simple beer that was well balanced but lacking in complexity. A small sweetness to the beer, with an easy bitter aftertaste.

Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy reddish brown pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, cocoa, earth into a bit of yeasty spice, slight grass. Taste was a mix of grass, earth, toasted bread into some cocoa, slight caramel, hints of red fruit, finishing slightly sweet, dry.

Deep brown color. Nice caramel and toasted malt notes. Seems to be more like a porter than a regular brown ale, but a very tasty one.

Keg at the Big Sur Taphouse on PCH1, 30/04/14. Chestnut brown with a moderate light beige covering that retains well. Nose is toffee, dark fruits, nutty tang, brown sugar. Taste comprises toffee, light vanilla, touch of cocoa, subtle hop presence, biscuit crumble. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying close. Ok middle of the rod brown, a touch better than most to be fair!

joeneugs (6105) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 5, 2014
On tap at Catos Alehouse. It pours a deep reddish brown color with a khaki head. The aroma is nice and toasty with some chocolate and nuts. The flavor is nutty and toasted with strong earthy, menthol and spicy hop character. Medium/strong bitter finish. The malts work really well with the hop varieties and usage. This is a West Coast Brown Ale I can get behind. Really tasty.

Pours a clear dark brown with nice soapy tan head. Aroma is milk chocolate and slight dark fruits and roasted malts. Taste follows the Aroma well with a medium mouth feel. Nice brown ale. Well made.
