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.

Grovlam (4157) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2008
Bottle. Average light creamy beige head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Light cloudy amber color. The base of this brew is mainly malty notes with a good portion of hops to go with it. Light nutty and toasted malt, caramel, hint of fruit and yeast. Then comes light floral and hint of pine from the hops. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation and light dry texture. Moderated sweet with good counter bitterness. Light bitter floral accent. Quit nice.

sunevdj (3271) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2007
Pours a hazy brown with a small off-white diminishing head. Very sweet with a light acidic hint and a slight bitterness. Very malty with aromas of grain, molasses, straw and cereals. Rather bready. Medium to full bodied and slightly oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Long sweet finish.

Skinnyviking (7236) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2007
Bottle. Low and hardly existing brown head. The body is hazy dark red. Aroma of caarame. otherwise prettey much alcohold and hops, mild though. Flavlr dominated pretty much cominated by alconol a high carbonation. Low carbonation and a long aftertaste. Sorry mates I do not get it. My expectations are a sweet caramel dominated beer without too much alcohol. Alcohol percentage is ok but sweetness cocoa caramel or goodness knows what I knoe. Too bad: Your beer lacks character.

screigh (477) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 11, 2007
Poured brown...like apple cider. Super hazy like an unfiltered wheat. No head at all. Slight malt aroma. Slight malt flavor with some weird metallic twang in the finish. Looks and tastes like someones first attemp at homebrew.

Cornfield (5552) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2007
From the bottle this pours a clear brown body with a one-fingered head. Minimal lacing. The aroma has scents of chocolate and toffee with a light herbal bitterness. The flavor reminds me of those chocolate malt balls (we called them malteezers) that I ate as a kid. Some earthy bitterness and an odd touch of alcohol come in near the finish. Drinkable.

Not great, very malty. Almost sugary - I wouldn’t reccomend this for any hop fans.
