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.

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

HopHeadinAZ (180) - Arizona, USA - APR 29, 2007
Pours a cloudy brown. Hopefully bottle conditioned as some others have commented. A finger deep tan head that quickly disappears. Some lacing left on the glass. Caramel and butterscotch ore present on the tongue but I also notice a slight metallic flavor. Nice mouth feel. I would like to try a fresher sample of this.

Clear dark amber pour with a rather thin off white head. Pleasant chocolatey aroma. Malt/chocolate flavor with well carbonated mouthfeel and a very slightly sweet finish. Nice example of a well crafted american brown ale.

Nice and drinkable. From a can. Not overly nutty which is just great for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2007 Bought a six pack of bottles Thanksgiving ’06. Pours dark brown, with light head. I found this beer to be quite drinkable.

ThaBobfather (178) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Pours a very deep brown with complex-for-a-brown smell of autumn. Good malt flavor and texture. Quality beer.

lethe (177) - New York, USA - NOV 17, 2005
Pours a mahogony brown with some cloudiness from yeast. Pillowy head presents a slighty weak nose of nutty sweetness and light smoke. Flavor is a procession of malty goodness, evoking hazelnut and pecan, followed by a building dryness characterized mostly by a smoky smooth finish. I am not partial at all to brown ales, but this is an excellent achievement for the type.

Very good. Has a really nice hoppy flavor. One of the best Browndaddies I’ve had.

Bottle. Pour was a cloudy dull red color with 3+ fingers of head. Brown sugar and malt is the dominate flavor, with hints of carmel, slightly bitter hops, and toffee. Very enjoyable brown ale.

Nightsky (176) - Lutz, Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2012
Thick head when poured. Aroma was smooth. Brown, mahogany in color. Lightly sweet, medium bitterness. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation and a nice bitter finish. I greatly enjoyed this beer.
