COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Eleven Brown Ale is a smooth Dark ale with hints of caramel and roasted nuts that are a result of the careful formulation of the malts. A slight hop bitterness balances the sweetness of the malts and provides the complement that makes the Eleven... one better than the other Brown Ale’s out there. Why the Eleven name ? It all started with the test batches when we were first conceiving of our company 10 years ago. We brewed many batches trying to perfect what the Florida consumer was looking for. All the bottles were anonymously numbered so that we were the only ones who knew which beer was going to be our first. The bottles with the number 11 were the resounding favorite. A step up and away from the light lagers that dominated the South Florida market at the time. A light tasting dark beer that to this day will surprise even the most steadfast light beer drinker.
Previously called Fresh Beer The 11.

sebletitje (7928) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2010
Draft @ FBGBF ’10. Pours amber, off-white head. aroma, roasted malts, dry malts, mild nose of caramel. flavors, nice roasted malts is a little hindered by the hoppy side that seems to be a little too high, med-high carb, simple roast/pale malts. Not a bad brown, just a tad boring.

Not too bad, but nothing really great. The appearance is soft brown with a light white foam head. The aroma and taste is that of roasted nuts with hints of hops.

mmmbeer (1334) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 5, 2009
12 oz. bottle aquired in trade from Daknole- oh yeah, my fav. style! Served in shaker- poured a transparent brown color, thin white head formed and raised some hell. Light aroma of caramel and malt. Hits the mouth with low-medium body, malt has a touch of caramel, holds up in the middle, finish has some light lingering nut sensation along with a few hops. Good sessioner.

Overall not terrible. Pours brown with thin whitish tan head. Aromas of a homebrew and some caramel. Flavors of nutty hops. Ok not worth going out of the way for.

j12601 (8000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Bottle courtesy of daknole, thanks man. Pours a clear light brown, a little like rootbeer, with a medium tanned beige head. Aromas of toasted malt, grain, and burnt nuts. A bit thin, some roast malt, a slight bit of acrid graininess. Finishes with a light bitter. Tough to finish.

iowaherkeye (2698) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JUN 6, 2009
12oz bottle, no date from daknole. Copper orange with a one finger yellow beige head. Aroma of sweet malts and caramel malts, and a hint of vanilla. Flavor is a little more metallic, otherwise the same. not really picking up on any toasted malts or nuttiness. Bitterness peaked at a 2. Thin watery body with light fizzy carbonation. Meh.
