Draft at LAX. Clear brown pour, minimal head. Thin malty aroma of roast and biscuit. Taste is moderately sweet with lightly roast bitter finish. Light body, texture is thin, average carbonation. Overall: unremarkable in every way.

This is a very grassy malty beer that is a bit too much of both of those for me. Not that good.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2015 A nice easy drinking but adequately roasty and flavorful brown ale. Not THEIR best brew, but a bit of a standout in a normally boring style for me..." Even better 2nd time around.

Beer Bloggers Conference - San Diego - Brown in color, clear with a thin head. Nice brown ale with a great flavor. Sweet with a light smoke.

Chalky deep brown color. 1/4" off-white head. Aroma is all full of coffee. Initially the flavor is too before it turns to a meaty dark maltiness with a side of bitterness. The finish trends up to sweet.

Nice thick tan head. Deep burgundy colored body. Good malty aroma. Malts carry over into the flavor as well. Definitely a good example of a brown in my book. Only bought a single can. But, will definitely buy the whole four-pack the next time around that Im looking for something not loaded with hops.

Fad: I lufthavnen i LAX. Den sidste l p min USA tur, men den frste der bliver skrevet ind. Brun surprise med et fint skumhoved. Duft af malt og let sdme. Smagen er bland med en fin mundfylde. Meh, men den fr lidt ekstra point fordi det var den sidste og jeg ikke havde regnet med det tick.

Looks and smells great, but the was a bit shallow in terms of flavor. I really like Golden Road overall, and think they have the right branding and ideas, but it just seems like their beers are brewed at a huge scale where you lose the quality control that other craft brewers work so hard to keep.

16 oz can from bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a foamy tan head and a smoky aroma. There is a light-bodied brown malt flavor that is both sweet and smoky.

Can from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours very dark clear copper (against strong light) with a slight yellow/beige head. Aroma is nutty, lightly dark treacle, and hinting at smoke. Med body. Flavor is greasy/nutty, enough treacle to suggest cola, and there seems to be a low level smoke. Maybe not. Nut aspect could be confusing me. Certainly one of the tastier browns I can recall.
