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.

bhensonb (10696) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 22, 2007
Bottle. 5.2% per BridgePort website. Light aroma of chocolate and malt. Clear ruby brown color with a beige head that didn’t stick. Medium mouthfeel, light chocolate, a slight rush of malt, and residual chocolate with slight hop in the finish. Very smooth, very light, probably good with certain foods. Nice, but it does not seem very substantial.

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Bottle. Clear cola and walnut brown colored body with a tan head. Nose is maple malt and brown sugar, light notes of toast, and a small lactic yeast note. Crisp and wet flavor, crusty toasted grains, wet bread, some walnut flavored toasted bread... decent enough for a brown ale but nothing to see here either...

DuffMan (6462) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 10, 2008
Bottle, shared with mmmIPA and Parksy. This was a lightly hopped brown ale, nutty and a little fudgey in the malt department. Very enjoyable.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   Moderate brown, ruby hues, moderate light beige head, spritzy, spotty lacing.   Malty nose, a little mealy, slight cocoa notes.   Certainly light on any hop aspect.   Pretty malty, a little mealy, some cereal, with very little bitterness.   Decent, a good beginners Brown.   Very light on the exit, clean, with some minor mealy notes.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, perhaps nearing the thing side.   Wow, quick finish.   Not much there.   Certainly a light beer for the style, no hop bitterness and light on the tongue.   Wished it was a bit bigger, but as is it probably appeals to most of those who would usually drink BMC.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2007
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. A basic, cookie-cutter rendition. Nothing wrong, but nothing much of interest either.
