COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Got them fancy clothes. Got that big car, suicide doors, 8 track stereo, color TV’s. Livin’ the American dream, now you’ve got a brew as smooth as a chorus from Al Green. Brash Brewing and Clown Shoes each made a brown ale at Mercury, then blended them. You don’t have to have solid gold pants to enjoy, but it helps.

This beer might be too big for its britches. I like brown ales but this one comes off a bit harsh and muddled. alcohol is present and abrasive. There is a nice sweet toastyness that is great but is detracted from by heavy booze.
