COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A smooth dark ale with hints of caramel and roasted nuts. This fullflavored English style Brown Ale perfectly balances the bitterness of the hops with a sweet malt base. "Why have a ten... when you can have THE ELEVEN!"

Contract brewed for Native Brewing Company.

Bottle. Poured a clear brown with a fizzy tan head. Aromas of nut, toasted malt, caramel, and honey. The flavor takes it down a notch with only caramel and nut standing out. Medium body and sweet throughout.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 29, 2009
Thanks daknole. Clear, medium brown pour with an abundance of beige head, generous lace. Aroma smoke, nuts, somewhat bitter. Flavor is built around bittersweet malts, but more sweet than bitter, big on the light caramels here, also touches of cider, brown sugar, pecan. Thin to medium body, but not at all watery. Nicely drinkable.

beerbill (3509) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAR 12, 2009
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with daknole. Pours a hazy brown with a moderate off-white head that lasted through three-quarters of the glass and coated the glass well with each sip. Pleasant aroma of sweet malt, caramel and just a bit of hazelnut. The flavor lacks any of the sweetness promised in the aroma and consists of malt, cardboard, whole wheat bread, and unsweetened iced tea. Light bitterness at the finish. A bit of a disappointment after a promising start.

jsquire (3538) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Brown color with a foamy beige head that left nice lacing and a lasting slick on the beer. Caramel sweetness in the nose with some tea and roasted malts. The flavors have some white sugar sweetness with sweetened tea, an almost raspberry fruitiness and a dry grassy finish. Not a bad brown, but not very interesting.

Lagunitasfan (1318) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 30, 2009
Trade with Daknole as well. Dark brown color, beige head, turned to lace. Malt and nuts on the nose. Some dark sweetness too. Very light flavor. Watery. Too light in the mouth.

WeeHeavySD (3359) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - JAN 12, 2009
12oz bonus from daknole. Pours brown with a tan head. Nose is sweet and yucky. Taste is just kinda gross. So there ya go this ain’t so great.

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Bottle. Moderately sweet caramel malt aroma. Reddish brown body, light brown head. Well-blended flavor, moderately sweet and malty. Not bad.

502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - DEC 25, 2008
12 oz into pint glass. This thing looked great but was unfortunately a bust as it was pretty heavily oxidized, which I am blaming on the screw off caps. Why any company uses these is beyond me.

BeerandBlues2 (9997) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 22, 2008
Bottle received via trade with daknole. Pours clear brown with an average, rocky, off-white head, somewhat lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, caramel, roasted grain), light hops (herbs), average yeast (leather) with notes of date, apple, and cola. Light bodied, oily texture, average carbonation, and a metallic finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.
