COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ah, yes, the humble and often overlooked brown ale! Here at Helms we love the rich, bready, and toffee like malt profile of this style. 6 different malts contribute to this complex medium bodied brew. We use just a touch of hops to provide a lovely counter point for the natural sweetness of barley. This beer pairs well with stews, BBQ, chili & chocolates of all types.

8 Mar 2014, tap at Helm's Brewing. Dark brown/ruby. Nose is brown sugar and burnt toast. Thin body, faintly oily, mildly fizzy. Toasted malt, sugary overall. Nice enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at the brewery. Rating #2. Very nice brown, the best beer that I had there that day. Nutty and a little sweet, enjoyable. (2632)

brokensail (9944) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Dark brown pour with an off-white head. Surprisingly, a very fruity aroma. Plenty of sweet malt, toast, and a mild roasted malt character. Some notes of banana, toffee, and nuts. Flavor is sweet malt and fruit. A fair amount of banana, some berry notes, and toffee. Toasted bread, light roast, chocolate, and nuts. Kind of a mix of an English and Belgian brown ale.
