COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our roasted chocolate and pale malts shake hands creating mild caramel flavors. Brown is your new reason to love beer. Hops are added to create the perfect balance of sweetness to hopiness. Brown is back... and it's beautiful.

Pours a deep brown with red highlights and a thin off-white head. Aroma is minimal, only some English hops. The taste has some caramel, bread and light nutty flavors but doesn’t have the almond/hazelnut intensity of sam smith’s. Decent, just let it warm up a bit first.

FlyingSwine (174) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2008
Pours a nice dark crimson, with a small tan head. Light aroma. Smells a touch like Goldings, but not quite. This one has a bit of a chemical aroma. Flavor is subtle, and fairly balanced, but too light to make an impression. Palate is thin, but not watery. Overall an okay brown, but was expecting better from a quality brewer.

Bottle. Nice brown color with a tan head. Aroma is kinda light, malty. Slight chocolate and biscuit taste. A little bit of caramel in the finish. A little bit of nuts also. Light on the palate.

Gregis (1279) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - APR 3, 2008
Pours a clear orange-brown with a finger of creamy, beige head and matching lace. The nose is of fruity, burnt caramel and light metal. Medium-bodied with fine "expansive" carbonation; it actually feels as if it’s increasing in volume while it sits in your mouth; most curious. It finishes a bit astringent and lightly bitter with a touch of metal, as well. Burnt caramel, a faint nuttiness, and a bit of plastic, with a mildly bitter earthy-hopped finish. I generally like Bridgeport’s brews, but this one is an exception to that rule.

raphael (838) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 30, 2008
maple, chocolate, wheat toast. deep reddish brown w/ quick off-white head. a sting from carbonation and hops but also a thin and drying texture. honey, molasses, apricot malt flavors get a little balance from lightly citrus hops

unclemike (2180) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAR 3, 2008
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (nuts, caramel, toasted bread), lightly hoppy (herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Clearly made for carefree easy-drinking.

This is one of the better browns that I’ve had. Pretty dark for a brown, nice fluffy head. Pleasant caramel malt aroma, rather sweet smelling.. Sweet, bready, malty taste that is nice and smooth. Not a big fan of the style but this is a good one.
