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.

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.

Dark muddy brown with big rocky head. Smooth and mellow, but with a milk chocolate undertow. Nice beer.

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.

Reddish brown color. Malty aroma. Shorter head. Silky smooth malt with carmel flavors. Very drinkable and a good one to have next to the fire this time of year.

This was a very good brown ale. it has aroma of malts, a nice brown colour you could tell wasn’t filtered. Ther head was a nice tan colour and stayed till the end. The flavour was full of malts, not too sweet, but just enough to make this a good drinkable beer.
