This is pretty good. A creamy brown ale with a bit of hops to the body. Light finish. A solid introduction for me to these guys.

joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 5, 2014
On tap at Cato’s 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.

bartlebier (4123) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 25, 2015
Tap [email protected] Live ’15 - SA, danke either motelpogo or oldmanriver... Smells like pancakes drizzled with caramelised maple syrup. Seamy, easygoing silky mouthfeel, feeding you a liquid dessert of toffee, milk chocolate cake spiked with hoppy red berries. Mellow & nice.

alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Bottle; poured a dark cola brown color. Aroma was hoppy for the style, with a definite NW profile. Fruity, earthy, a bit of spice and some roasted/caramel. Had a nice twist on the style, with a solid balance of malt and hop components. NW style hops; Finish transitioned from hops to caramel/roasted in a nice way. Good stuff
