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.

Iíd be tempted to agree with the label if I hadnít had Boyne River Brown. This is a noble brown ale, nonetheless, elegant and tasty to the last drop.

This is my favorite Brown Ale; Iím never disappointed by Bellís, and recommend all their beers.

A tasty brown ale. Nice soft maltiness, with typical Bell carbonation and head. Iíd buy it again.

Iím as big a fan of dark beers, this one was a good dark brew as far as Iím concerned. Not the best Bellís produces, but still good.

A small, rich aroma and a murky brown appearance with a tiny head. A nice dry taste and solid hop finish. A good beer.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2005 Not my favorite Bellís, but still very good. A very bread-like consistency with dark color and decent carbonation.

A nice mild brown, with just the right amount of hop flavour n the finish. Well done!

Two words, Damn Good. Great while watching a football game or watching the leaves fall. An Autumn classic.
