Draft pour pint at Stogies and Hops. It’s cool to start seeing more obscure offerings from these guys hitting Seattle, instead of the same two. Copper bRonde pour with an active fizz head. Gentle malt aroma. Toast heavy malt, with a dense bitter hop constant. Tasty brown for sure, and unique for the style.

A nice chewy brown. Plenty of nutty character and a heathy dash of smoke to it too. Thick in the texture, almost too thick!

well balanced with a nice hop profile, though it didn’t stand out as much as my favorite pale or the ipa (or IIPA). Good dark malts, though. Sessionable.

On tap at Bend pub. Pours out a rusty brown topped with a sand head. Nose is malts some light roast and a hop twist. Taste is as the nose with a good malty backbone and light hops.

A man can search downtown like a clown for a formidable Brown and come up short. It doesn’t seem to be too popular of a style in the land of Cascadia. I would call this more of a straight up Brown and avoid all this India business everyone keeps tagging on. Seriously, when was the last time India really had anything noteworthy to do with the IPA (and spin-off styles) style of beer? Ranting aside, this poured looking sort of like a homestyle cola in every way, bit thicker and long lasting head. Sort of a foggy, rustic brown. I was trying to find a beer at a local Bend brewery that was malty as fuck and this one sure came close. Nutty, roasty and caramel with light coffee and chocolate, even some actual cola taste. A bit more full in the feel than your typical IPA and very smooth going down. I’d session a few of these.
