On tap @ Tap and Handle Foco during another massive Sierra Nevada tap takeover. Pours a burnt orange/brown appearance with a light brown head. Biscuity, caramel, slightly nutty, bready aroma. Medium light body. A touch of fruit, pecan, caramel flavor. Moderate high sweetness. Some biscuity notes. Drinks fine but nothing special. daknole (11050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Brownish pour, cream colored head. A pretty standard mix of caramel malts, lightly spiced hops, bit doughy. Not bad, nothing amazing. mstrcrwly (1000) - New York, USA - JAN 3, 2014

On tap at State Line tasting. Pours a reddish brown color with a large foamy tan head. The smell is a little light with some sweet malt aromas and some nuttyness. The taste is creamy with a roasted malt, nuts, and some citrus flavors. The mouthfeel is light and crisp. skoisirius (1909) - Earth, Washington, USA - NOV 16, 2013
I’m currently rating every SN brew I’ve ever had in one clean sweep.
I grew up on the classic SN Pale having it around during high school, and since have watched SN grow into a national representation of incredible craft beer. Living 45 mins away is a treat for the random growler fill. Keep up the amazing work and thanks!

On tap at the brewery/restaurant. Pours a deep brown with a dark tan head. Aroma of caramel malt and chocolate. Flavors of earth, biscuit and caramel malt. adamah (214) - California, USA - APR 24, 2013
There was a slightly sweet malty aroma but not very strong. The color was a clear brown almost amber color with very little foam. The taste was a little sweet but it gave way immediately to a bland bitterness. The body was a little thin as well. I got almost nothing out of this beer. cgarvieuk (25742) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 8, 2012

GBBF 2012. Pours a dark brown colour with a thin beige head, malt and chocolate in the aroma, taste is nutty and malty, with a sweet finish. JorgeLee (2194) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2012
Tap at GBBF 2012. Deep brown colour. Slightly boozy malt aroma. Taste is very smooth, malty, caramel, toffee, slightly sweet. A bit fuller of body than some of the traditional English brown ales. Well made and enjoyable, if not super exciting.
