Our Brown is a British Style brown. It has a roasted nutty flavor complimented by a great malt sweetness.

Brewpub visit 11/04 ... dark ruddy brown with a thin head. Sweet caramel rules. Malty and sugary and smooth. Nice done with a subtle bitter finish.

On tap at the brewpub: It pours a dark brownish muddy water color with tiny head that gives way to a ring quickly. The flavor was strong of roasted malts in my opinion, nutty, caramel, and toffee.

Draft sampler, 4 Aug. 07. Almost Porterish in color, though holding it to the light shows its brown edges. But, in fact, it actually tastes like what a lot of big brewers try to pass off as porters. A bit of toffee flavor, sticky with some smoky sweetness, and just a note of fruitiness. Could actually be my favorite beer here, just because it pushes the edge of its intended style.

Tasted 9/7/08. Draft from the brewpub. Filtered with a dark amber hue. Good malt roast with a smooth finish. Fudgy and nutty. Went great with the meatloaf I had for dinner!

phaleslu (9384) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Draft at the brewpub, served in a nonic pint glass. Pours a mostly clear brown with amber highlights and a tiny beige head. The aroma took quite a while to emerge, and when it did there were notes of nuts, caramel, brown sugar, and toast. The flavor follows mostly the same lines, with caramel malts, toast, nuts, brown sugar, cola, and vanilla. Light-medium bodied, with a sweet, nutty mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Just a wee bit on the sweet side but otherwise a nice brown ale.

boto (2102) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - APR 23, 2004
Draught: This pours a fairly clear brown color. There is a bit of a rapidly dying tan head. Not too much lacing. The aroma is somewhat sweet, with a hint of nutiness. Maybe some fruits, but very subdued. The taste is malty sweet and nutty. A hint of roastiness to it. The aftertaste is a bit dry also.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 8, 2004
On tap at Flat Branch. This was my favorite beer at the brewery. Deep red-brown body with nary a head. Flavor was quite interesting with caramel, toast, dark fruit, nuts, and red grapes. A tasty, quaffable brown ale.

Brown color. Somewhat sweet. Nutty like pecan. Another refreshing brew from flat branch.
