This traditional southern English style brown ale, combines European malts with American hops. The result is a rich, malty, full-bodied ale, with a subtle hint of fruitiness on the nose and palate.

Appearance is a chocolate brown with about a finger of head that dissipated quickly. There is a malty and bready nose – exactly what I might expect in a standard brown ale. The flavor is hearty with a mild and slightly sour bitterness on the finish. The light roasted malt character is pleasant and makes for a solid, but not exceptional brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught @ Tapped: This one pours an opaque dark brown color. There was about a finger of a tan head.Nice nose. Mainly malty and nutty. The taste is good. Malts, faint chocolate nuttiness. Nice.

Biggest issue is really the thin body but actually has a nice blend of malt flavors and mellow hops. Would drink anytime.

Sample at the brewery. Pours a deep dark brown with a medium sized tan head. Nice aroma of roasted nuts and malts. Nice body, not too thin nor too thick. Drinks smooth with lots of malt and nut flavor. Not harsh or bitter. Something you can sit back and relax and enjoy. Iíve had many Brown ales that were just too watery or over roasted and tasted burnt. This was right in the middle where it needs to be. Full of flavor and enjoyable. Took a growler to take home and enjoy it again.

sample at brewery, pours dark brown/black with small to medium head. Balanced with just the right amount of roast. Chocolate, malt, and clean grain. Very nice brown ale from Helltown thatís underrated.
