COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Harpoon Brown is brewed to accentuate the sweeter, rounder notes derived from six different malts, including a de-husked chocolate malt that adds a hint of chocolate. The blend of these malts produces a beer that is complex and delicious without being heavy. This drinkable beer is perfect as a session beer or paired with foods.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2009 The aroma is like a brown but weaker, it has caramel, toasted malt, dust, caramel, and chocolate. The appearance is light brown with an average head at best. The palate is thin. Overall it’s disappointing and could qualify as a brown light.

Brown with tan head. Malt and hops aroma. First taste is sweel malt then hops as it passes over the back of the tounge. Finishes clean and smooth.

decaturstevo (5036) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 17, 2008
thanks jcwattsrugger. A deep brown/amber pour with hints of red. A roasted malt aroma. Flavor of roasted malt with a hint of hops on the finish. A little thin but carbonation is pretty good. An average brown ale. I would like to have had a little fuller dody and some more taste from this beer. Pretty solid offering.

Hance07 (192) - DownSouth, Georgia, USA - FEB 12, 2008
Pours dark brown with small tan head. Aroma is suprisingly hoppy. Flavor is more hops than you would expect from a brown ale. Some sweet malt also but not much. Not a great brown but drinkable.

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - FEB 11, 2008
Pours a deep cocoa brown with small, disappearing head. Nose is full of british hop funk, a mildly sweet malt character. Perhaps too much roasted flavor on the weak palate, ends like bitter cocoa krispies. Not a great brown ale.

12 oz bottle-pours a foamy tan head that laces and copper/red color. Aroma is spice/citrus hops, medium malt-caramel. Taste is spice/citrus/slight metallic hops, medium malt-caramel. Finish is somewhat thin and quick. OK/mild carbonation.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Pours brownish amber with a mostly receding off-white head. Aroma of nuts, caramel, crystal and brown malt. Tastes of caramel, sweet malt, dough and crystal. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. Enjoyable, but not exceptional.
