Brown ales celebrate malt flavors. We lightly hop this one to let the caramel and coffee flavors of the roasted malts come through. While it is most definitely brown, it has a lighter body than you would think and is mildly sweet. An all-around favorite. It gets its name from the fact that the first batch was not particularly brown. 5.0% ABV.
