COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
ACME CALIFORNIA BROWN ALE is creamy smooth after the style made famous in the north of England. It's toasty with hints of cherry and black currant. Acme Brown is brewed according to tradition with high dried and brown malt, and lightly finished with the Noble hops Tettnang and Hallertauer. The result is a very drinkable beer that can be enjoyed for an entire evening.

This brown is different from most browns in that it has an English flair. The malt and hops are English and mellow, but they have added some fruit essences that change the profile somewhat. This is a good beer that strays from the style.

Medium brown pour, tan head. Nuts, light milk chocolate, some bready notes. Again, not much to write home about.

Bottled. Amber colour with a small white head. Aroma is sweet malts, mild syrup as well as some slight hopping as well. Flavour is brown sugar, caramel malts, mild syrupy notes as well as some floral and fruity hops. Balanced, but not that exciting.

I found it didn’t have a lot of flavour, though it certainly wasn’t unpleasant. I much prefer the red Seal from North coast. Bottle in Taipei, Taiwan

It’s beer! This is a quiet little brown ale, and it is smooth, has a nice tight little head on it, and has a touch of mellow malt, and just a little bitter coming down. Sweet, kind hearted, and better than Newcastle with more up-front flavor.

Decent malts and smooth, its not the most flavorful brown ale but it wasn’t bad.

I don’t remember that much about this one, other than that the generic name fit it. An average brown, perhaps a bit thin, but inoffensive.
