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.

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2009
Tap at Pony Bar. Light brown pour with a thin white head. The nose has a lot of toasted character. Light brown malt, herbal cocoa and a bit of rye bread like spiciness. Fairly herbal tasting with a nice clean nuttiness. The hops show a kiss of earthy woodiness as well. It’s a fairly simple brown ale, but it’s decent enough. A bit of spice as it warms.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 8, 2007
Pours a transparent dark copper amber with a thin, wispy-lacing light tan head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasted caramel malt and a hint of milk chocolate. Body starts thin and semi-sweet with a lot of drier, nutty, toasty flavor toward the finish. A little weak for the style, but fairly well-balanced.

Pours clear copper with brown hues and thin off white head. The aroma is roasty with hints of caramel and slight dark roastiness. It tastes roasty with fairly full notes of malt, sugar and some caramel sweetness. Pretty nice stuff.

Pours brown with a brown with a thin tan head. Smells of biscuits, some earthiness and hints of spice. Tastes of caramel, some earthiness and hints of oats. Mouthfeel is thin with a semi sweet inoffensive finish. Nothing to write home about.
