COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pointer Brown has a complex chocolate and caramel flavor. Our brewers use a combination of assorted Pacific Northwest hops to balance the slightly sweet character of the beer. It is deep reddish brown in color, smooth and full bodied with a pleasant semisweet finish.

On tap at the brewery. Brown and clear appearance with a light brown head and some lacing. Malty aroma of caramel, chocolate and earthy hops. Similar flavor, malty and mildly sweet with light bitterness, nicely balanced. Medium body, creamy and smooth with soft carbonation. Good.

Pour is brown with little to no head...smell is sweet malts, nutty, then definately hoppy...taste is not "crazy complex" by any means...sweet up front, but bizarre spicy bitterness in the finish...not their best beer...

Pours a reddish brown color with a medium head. The aroma is molasses and some bready bisciut-y things. This smells plenty malty. The flavor is lightly tart and toasty with some cherry and apple fruitiness. Mild but nice.

On tap at the brewpub in Des Moines. A simple yet pleasant beer here. Unlike the other offerings I tried throughout the night, there was nothing off about this one. In the aroma, some nutty dark malts, caramel, grains, and a non distinct hop in the background. It looked about like a standard brown would, with a medium-light body, light head, and straight brown color. The feel was nicely creamy with a bit of a bit. Good balanced notes in the flavor. Nutty dark malts, caramel, coffee, and earthy wood hop. Again, nothing special, but quite enjoyable.

TAP: clear brown pour, mild nose. Taste is caramel, roast, and chocolate. Very impressive brown ale!

Tried at the 4th Annual Festival of Iowa Beers. Touches of diacetyl in the flavor with malt backing. Aroma is a great fresh malt smell.
