English Brown Ale
Demonstrates the robust flavors of chocolate and coffee. Muddy brown coloring and mild bittering provide a rich, smooth flavor profile; a proper reward after the harvest is over. Rich in agricultural history, the harvest is a critical part of life in Sussex County, Delaware, that spans the entire year. This beer celebrates those who feed their communities.

corby112 (2703) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Pours a very dark chestnut brown color with faint mahogany edges and a frothy, one finger off-white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Toasted dark malt aroma with subtle roasted coffee, caramel, toffee and cocoa. There’s a faint grassy hop presence but the nose is dominated by subtle roast and caramel malt sweetness. On the lighter end of medium bodies with a flavor profile that’s very similar to the aroma. There is a very delicate, crisp hop bite up front but the dominant flavors here is slightly roasted sweet malt. Hints of caramel, toffee and nut countered by autumnal spice and toasted bread. Not very complex but pleasant enough and easy to drink.

kramer (5501) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear ruby brown body with a one finger foamy beige head. The nose is sweet and nutty with some light caramel and a minimal huskiness. The flavor is a little on the thinner side, some weak nutty and toasted malts with minimal bitterness. Light bodied and watery in texture with soft fizzy carbonation. Not the best Brown Ale, this could use a boost in the malt department.

ttutony (794) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Medium brown with minimal white head. Aroma of chocolate, toast, nuts. A little light on the body but still I would call it a medium body. Malty flavors predominate as they should for the style. Nutty grain is the chief flavor.

katrinaez (778) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2015
UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Pretty decent brown. Light flair to malts and a little nutty taste. Easy on the tongue but not overly smooth. Bottle

radio_nowhere (1257) - Maryland, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Draft at Middleton’s in Annapolis, MD; dark brown color with minimal tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, toffee, light coffee and some nuttiness. Taste adds notes of chocolate, stronger coffee, caramel toast and light fruity/citrus hop bitterness. Light-medium body, low-moderate carbonation, creamy with fruity/roasty finish. Some nice depth to this brown ale, good.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle at Rustico in Stevensville, MD. Clear, very dark mahogany with a khaki head and good lacing. Ai roasted malt, mild chocolate and a touch of nuts. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and nuts. Light/medium body and high/medium carbonization. Nothing fancy here, just a nice, enjoyable brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
