COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Headbangerz Brown Ale is based on an English brown ale style. Its color is a demonic, dark reddish-brown. This beer is subtly sweet and punctuated with roasty, nutty flavors. The hops take a back seat and simply complement the malt character. Headbangerz Brown Ale is perfect for any Autumn outdoor activities or for relaxing on Summer evenings. Headbangerz Brown Ale is named in honor of Barbarian Chief’s, Mike Hiller, hardworking former co-workers – heavy metal freaks and masters of metal fabrication. 5% ABV

Flavor is heavy sweet, caramel malt, light earthy hops, and average dark fruit esters; sweet finish. Light body, medium carbonation, and low warmth.

jrallen34 (3483) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2011
bottle... cloudy light brown with hint of amber, light tan head, not much to appeal to the eye... this beer is infected, brett, tons of yeast is all I get... taste is infected as well

keepersj12 (2694) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Thin and watery from the tap at Perch Pub in Philly. Pours brown, murky with a small head. Not much aroma probably because it came out flat. The flavor was nutty and malty. Maybe I had a bad one cause a little carbonation might have made a big difference.

Cloudy brown in color. Malty but thin with a nutty flavor. Somewhat watery overall, lacking in punch or body.

From the tap poured a brown color with a fair amount of head. Light watery malty flavor with a quick finish.

DiarmaidBHK (3418) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Pours dark brown from tap with very little foam. A bit of malty aroma but no carbonation with this one. Some notes of malt on the tongue. I think they flavored this with whoppers. Finishes watery and bland.

jeff789 (1407) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2011
Slightly murky brown with a small tan head... slightly tart aroma, very malt forward, not a lot of hops in the aroma or flavor, medium bodied, tart nose, not a tart body at all, a little nutty... Decent brown, but not in the american hoppy brown ale vein...

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Bottle. Pours a bruin body with a tan head and light retention. Malty body toffee, caramel, a light nuttiness, but also paper tones and a dull grain bill. Light body bitter sweet and dry. Eh, so so.

alobar (2791) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2010
Way overly carbonated. Aroma of caramel and roasted malts. Pours a clear brown color with reddish hues, slightly off-white head. Caramel, brown sugar, and nuts mostly in the flavor.
