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

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2003 Deep clear brown in color, has a small off-white head, nice fruity, nutty malty aroma. Mild nutty and sweet malty flavor, has a nice crisp hop bite in the finish. Somewhat of a watery and thin mouthfeel, not bad and pretty much average for the style.

On draft at the source. The beer is chestnut brown with a thin, light beige collar. The aroma offers some sweet, fruity notes atop a light malt bill. The flavor is decent, albeit a bit to sweet. A bit more bread and malt character would serve this beer well. Decent beer, and easy enough to get through a pint, but this could stand a few improvements.

Nice brown. Decent caramel malt flavor. My first Flat Branch beer. Impressed so far. Delicious.

Very brown, with a ruby tint. Mild chocolat and roast aromas. Dry, chalky on the palate, with some chocolate, and maybe some spices, like cinnamon. Also a molasses component? A little on the thin side.

Nice dark color with very thin head and almost oily looking once the head fades. Taste had the raisin flavor that is used in a lot of the dark/sweeter flat branch beer (one that I do not enjoy). Tasted malt and a little toffee flavor too, but no real nutty flavor. I was disappointed, but still a decent beer.

This was a decent brown ale. Slightly nutty roasty malt flavors. Nothing bold really shined through on this drink. Just average.

Tasted at Flat Branch Brewery in Columbia, Missouri. Medium brown appearance with a dark malty aroma. Body almost like a stout but still has nutty characteristics.
