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.

An average brown. Some nuttiness to the taste. Malty but with some metallic notes that appear after warming. Texture is watery. Color is on the reddish side for a brown. Good head and retention. Fair lacing. Average aromas strength but with nothing offputting. Low carbonation. Keep working at it Fresh Beer. It is nice to see you available in more locations.

Dogbrick (7669) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Sample at Nona Tap Room. Pours a clear pale brown color with a medium thin light beige head that dissipates steadily to a wispy film. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and slight hops. Light-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, roasted nuts and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a short grainy malt aftertaste. Average overall.

stevencon (420) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Tap at proof. Light brown color almost muddy amber. White head. Looks thin and mouth feel is light body. Some brown ale notes but also some burnt grain notes too. Not worth a second glass.

jbruner (2177) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 8, 2013
On tap at the Proof FL Tap Invitational. Pours a clear brown on tap with bubbly white head that leaves light lacing. Aroma is light toasted nuts and crisp almost lager notes. Taste is more along the brown lines you expect, toasted nuts and caramel, slightly sweet. Decent, but nothing special.

theisti (3185) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - APR 17, 2013
Shaker pint draft at Tap42 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The pour is a golden copper brown with a small light tan head. The aroma is sweet malt and a pleasant nuttiness. The taste is chestnut, grass floral hop, and an ever so light roast quality. The palate is light bodied, active carbonation, and a clean nut and grass finish. Simple, straight forward clean beer.

(12oz bottle) Pours a clear copper body with a small beige head. Aroma of chocolate, nuts, and grain. Flavor of cocoa, grain, roasted malt, caramel, earth, and nuts with a moderately dry finish.

sloshgator (406) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Saying this average brown ale is an "11" (meaning better than a 10) is overstating it a lot. Caramel and roasty aromas are there. The 11 is light brown in color with a head that pours nice but dissipates quickly. Taste is sweet. The 11 goes down smooth. This is a decent session beer but nothing remarkable. The 11 is a nice change of pace if you get it at a good price, or something different to serve at a party.

youdictategood (256) - Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Single bottle, Total Wine. As has been pointed out, this is brewed by Shipyard now. Amber pour with a small thin head. Malty, grainy aroma. Malt and bitter chocolate in the flavor with a really dry, coppery aftertaste. Tastes more like a black lager, really - in a blind test I wouldn’t peg it as a brown ale. Not something I’d be inclined to pick up again.
