COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A smooth, toasty brown ale, Best Brown Ale is a mainstay in our fall & winter lineup. With hints of caramel and cocoa, the malt body has the depth to stand up to cool weather, but does not come across as heavy. This balancing act is aided by the generous use of American hops.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2009 12 oz Bottle Rich and malty, hops are more absent. Beautiful rich amber brown color and a good head, nice froth. Smacks a littler bitter, but has a toasty, nutty finish.

Bottle, thanks to jcalabre. Silty orange-ish brown with decent head, malty nut tinged aroma. Good malt character, lots of other flavors including nuts, roasty caramel and a nice bite in the finish. Very nice, one of the better examples of this style.

Dark brown with big fluffy head. Nutty malt aroma. Flavor is pretty complex with nuts,roasted malt and caramel. Very smooth mouthfeel. Very long aftertaste.

heemer77 (5108) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Thin, slightly yellowish head. Dark brown body with some very dark red light showing through it. Aroma is malty and earthy with walnuts and socks. Maybe a touch of honey. Mouthfeel is full of carbonation. Also some bread and roasted coffee. Some toffee and slight bubblegum in the finish. Thanks MrFacto for this great brown.

A good choice for a cold winter’s night. It pours a cloudy brown color with a medium tan head. Malt dominates the aromas and flavors of this beer. Mostly toasted malt with nuts, some chocolate, and possilby a hint of underlying hops in the nose. Light to medium bodied with a mild creamy texture. Flavors of malt, caramel, nuts, and a touch of bitterness in the finish that tends to linger a bit. Overall a well put together beer. Quite enjoyable.

Smells like malt, looks like malt, tastes like malt.... it must be malt. Not a bad brown ale, more interestingly complex than the traditional style.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - DEC 23, 2004
Pours a dark hazy brown, white bubbly head. Aroma of malts, choclate, creamy, and some spice to it. Flavor is similar, spicy and crisp. Very roasted and malty. Interesting.
