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.

Whoa! This a like drinking a nice cigar. Very smokey and powerful. Strong malt presence and equal hoppiness. A different kind of brown ale, but not necessarlily a bad brown ale.

Bottled. I tend to fing Browns kinda of boring. This one had a little more flavor going for it than you usual brown. Nothing fancy. Good drinkable beer.

omhper (19324) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2003
Bottled. Ruby colour, firm head. Aroma of crystal malt and grapefruit. Rather sweet. Chewy crystal malt flavour balanced by the bitterness added by flowery hops and a fair punch of warming alcohol. Pretty godd, but Kalamazoo does the really dark and heavy ones better.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 18, 2003
Light amber brown color with a nice head that prevails over time and light stagnant lacing. Aroma is mainly hoppy, but slightly musky with a touch of malt in the end of the nose. Flavor is spicy with a light nutty malt presence, mainly hoppy in this brown though. Not quite to style, but you get the idea. Thanks ClarkVV

Muckrakerr (33) - Muskegon, Michigan, USA - FEB 21, 2005
Bottle. Nice one inch beige head. Toasted malt, caramel aroma. Sweet toasted malt initial flavor which phases into a alcohol, slight hop and malt, caramel finish. Lots of sediment. Good brew.
