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.

Tasted 2007-04-06. 1,5 years old, 35,5cl. Clear amber colour with little head. Aroma of malt, molasses - very sweet. Not much taste - maybe too old. Tastes a bit like bread. Has some bitterness left. It’s not bad, and despite the low strength, it’s has gone trough the cellaring quite good.

Adenila (1558) - DENMARK - JUN 5, 2007
Clear amber with a small dense light brown head. Aroma is that of mild sweet caramel with underlying notes of alchohol and flowers. Flavor is sweet and sirupy with a decent amount of bitter hobs taking over. Watery finish, and therefore hardly any aftertaste.

thewolf (11589) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2007
Bottle. A little muddy deep brown with a nice medium creamy yellowish head with a little lacing. Aroma is sweet with some maltyness and a definite sherry-like feel to it. Mouthfeel is creamy and airy. Flavour is sweet with some caramel, malty and again an oaky sherry creeps in. It dies out a touch before finishing on a chocolate bitter note.
