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.

One of bells better beers. One of the first brown ales I have had that I trule enjoyed. The flavor, wheat with a dry wine flavor. End crisp with some wheat flavors, nearing corn flakes. Aroma is wonderful. My favorite bellms beer so far.

On tap from the Hungry Monk. Very nice medium brown with a very small off whitw head that fades quickly, no lacing. Caramel flavors and minimal hops but surprisingly bitter aftertaste. Not bad, very light drinking experience. Peefect for lunch or as a starter beer. Would definitely drink it again.

Nice brown ale great color and smooth taste. The caramel color and malty smell makes for a great fall brew. Easy to drink yet

Dark beer with a nice pillow head. Subtle cereal and burnt caramel taste with a slightly bitter finish. Great american brown ale that isn’t super hoppy.

A wonderful smokey flavor. Very rich, but not over powering. Larry’s got it down. Enjoy!

Caramel brown body with ruby red running throughout. Drop lacing comes off of a well retained light brown head. Nose of sweet malts, nuts, caramel/toffee, biscuit dough and some light chocolate notes.Flavor profile is similar, sweetness dominating from the nuts and malts, but well kept in check. Great brown ale.
