One of my all time favorite brown ales. Balances the roast character deftly with a smooth sweet caramel flavor. The light chocolate character adds a level of depth unmatched. A sensual and lovingly inviting brown color in the glass like a Latin seductress. Not many brown ales take the cake like this one does. barstoolwarmer (2) - California, USA - NOV 27, 2011 does not count
Davy Brown Ale is rich without being overpowering and never bitter. A nice head and creamyl flavors. Fantastic in the cooler weather with great food. California’s Cold Springs Tavern serves Davy Brown on tap. With a roaring fire and a hearty meal, the atmosphere is ideal for this flavorful beer. A brew as important to a stew as gravy to a turkey on Thanksgiving. dwyerpg (6180) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 19, 2012
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. pintofbitter1 (7) - - DEC 24, 2013 does not count
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 The bouquet of this scrumptious brown ale delivers on all fronts. Very Nutella with elements of roasted nuts and cocoa powder. Chocolate and toast on the palate, but crisp and exciting, not dense or weighty. Great stuff! ---- http://instagram.com/pintofbitter BeerSamizdat (6) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 15, 2012 does not count
Phenomenally surprising brown ale (!) full of body, depth and taste. Malt and caramel and a really husky, robust backbone make for something a lot more special than most brown ales I’ve come across.
Beautiful label, too.

Pours a clear, medium brown color with a quickly attenuating, even. The aroma consists of dark roasted malt, notes of chocolate, and coffee acidity. The mouthfeel is magnificent. Perfect balance between the carbonation and creaminess perfectly accentuate the woody chocolate, ripe, dark fruit, and coffee acidity flavors. Neil loves this beer. So do I. beermaker69 (14) - Oceanside, USA - JUL 26, 2011
One of the better browns that I have had. A nutty brown aroma with a distinct American brown character. Does not taste as dark as it looks. White head, SRM is dark. Has great hop balance. I had it first from a 22oz bottle at a nearby restaurant and then on tap at their taproom after our group found out about the brewery. Great find.

Smoothest most flavorful brown I’ve ever had. Definitely my ’go to’ brown ale. Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Pours a clear dark reddish brown color with a moderate tan head. Aroma is toasted caramel with a hint of nut. Taste is also toasty nut. Moderate body with a good mouth feel. Very good example of a brown ale. SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JUN 26, 2011
Draught at the brewery. It’s truly refreshing to see a good example of an American brown that is properly roasty and hoppy. Such things apparently do exist outside of homebrew circles. Niuce chocolate malt flavor and aroma balanced by ample woody and citrusy hops. Dry and bitter but with lots of malt carrying through. One of the better browns I’ve had in awhile. Has someone been drinking Janet’s Brown lately?
