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.

Dark brown colored pour. Big off-white head. Plenty of lacing. Smell is of coffee and malt. A slight metallic nose with some chocolate. Light bodied mouth. Smooth and creamy. Taste is vanilla and coffee. Nice beer.

Tstamba (290) - Maryland, USA - JUL 9, 2013
From a bottle, deep brown, small tan head, smells like a fresh loaf of bread, tastes toasty with a sweet finish. A very good brown ale... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great brown ale; not sure I've had a better one. It's a hard beer for me to rate because it's a great brown, but browns don't do much for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle Poured into glass. Red brown pour with a healthy khaki head that sticks around. Nose is typical brown ale with caramel, toffee, and hazelnut up front. Really smooth and creamy body. Hazelnut Taste with some caramel sweetness and a mild roasted malt bitter finish. Pretty nice.

Brown ales aren’t my favorite but this one is very easy to drink. A very balanced "fall time" beer.

Johnsense (753) - - JUN 1, 2013
Amber pour with a thumbs worth of offwhite head that left gobs of lacing down the glass. Toasted malt in the nose, as well as some hops. Taste is much better - Bitter hops balanced out with toasted malt, caramel, nuts, bready aftertaste. Medium body. Very easy drinking.
