A British style that has a roasted nut-like aroma. Brewed with a number of dark malts, which lend a complex malt character. This beer does not have a lot of hop bitterness, only enough for balance. 5.2 - 5.6% alcohol, by volume

Birthday draft at Brewer’s Alley. Served in a English pint glass, clear dark brown with thin white head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, dark fruit and nuts. Taste is sweet malt, some coffee notes added and some light hop. Somewhat thin body for style, clean and creamy. I’m happy.

Really nothing to this one. Some very light nut but not much else. Pours very clear amber for a brown. Decent head and lacing. Empty finish. Tap at brewpub.

Taster on tap at the brewpub. Clear red orange color. Thin off-white head, leaves good thicker lace. Caramel malt and spicy malt. Light nuttiness to it. Medium body. Kind of smooth, lighter carbonation. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Ok nut brown ale.

on tap at the brewpub. it’s not really a style i’m drawn to anyway, and this is a so-so version of it. starts off with a nice malt profile, but it has a sour tang on the finish that cuts against the malt.

sonnycheeba (4481) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Tap. Pours clear nut brown with thin, creamy off-white head; short retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is caramel and toasted malt, earthy hops, figs, and light nuts. Flavor is sweet malt forward with some dark fruit followed by some rotten fruit funk; ends dry, with some cigarette ash notes. Light body, low carbonation, and low warmth.

Drjohnrock (592) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Draft sampler at brewpub. Medium dark amber/brown color, malty flavor battles with bitterness--the two don’t quite gel together but OK (just) overall. Tasted on 7/05/2009.

Block (1824) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Pretty good. Nice malt sweetness and hops balance. Just like most brown ales I’ve had from this area, this beer is really light on the nut and caramel flavors. This style is done a little more lightly than some brown ales from the midwest and west coast.

kramer (5499) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Tap. Pours a clear amber body with a minimal wispy off-white head. Lightly husky and nutty nose with a little light roast. The flavor is husky, a little thin, with some light-roast coffee. Some light hops, nice nutty character. The mouthfeel is fairly dry and light bodied with a nice slight husky texture. Pretty decent Brown Ale.
