This seductive beer is the latest edition in our nitrogen tap seasonal beers. Brown ale is one of the first recorded beers produced consistently in England with origins around the 15th century. The advent of mass-produced cheap, clear glass bottles and drinking vessels made this beer nearly extinct around the beginnings of the industrial revolution, in favor of lighter colored pale ales. Craft brewers both in the States and England have revived this classic style and it has flourished.
. Back in the day, a common excuse to get out of the house and down to the pub was to “walk the dog” and Blue Frog pays homage to the brewers of old with this rendition of a Southern London Brown.
“Walkin’ the dog” has fruity aromas with hints of hazelnuts and toasted almonds. Crisp on the palette, this beer is lightly hopped to accentuate the malty characters.

Sampled at Blue Frog with DTM. Not great, as far as browns go. I’ll have to try it again.

Had this a few weeks ago as part of the sampler. Didn’t know you could add a beer. Poured a brown color and had the typical nutty taste. Not bad but nothing to write home about either.
