After our success at the 2003 Australian International Beer Awards, our brewmaster, Mr. Nakanishi, set his sights on creating a beer that would exceed the successes of our Pale Ale. The result was Brown Ale. By using the ideal combination of four different kinds of hops Wonderfully layered, Brown Ale has a delightfully broad range of aromas and flavors that compared with Pale Ale, is slightly more complex and richer. This complex yet smooth ale is a testament to Ise Kadoya’s continuous efforts to creating a better beer.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2008 Bottled. Hazy brownish amber, rich head. Floral yeasty nose. Sweetish and fruity, medicinal with plenty of peachy hops. Soapy orangey and yeasty with lively spritzy mouthfeel Piney bitterish finish with a warming tingle. Isekadoyas style definitions may be somewhat unique, but they make good beers!

Hazy chesnut brown beer. Frothy off white head. Light frothy palate with a little carbonated nip. Trace of apple leads to mild toffee malt. Finishes dry and crisp with a little hop bitterness. Needs something more!

Draught at McLaughlin’s, Kyoto. Clear brown - offwhite head. Nice hoppy, grass, resin, nutty, roasted, fresh hoppy, toasted, knækbrød (swedish flatbread). A bit like Mikkeller - Jackie Brown. Lovely.

argo0 (13318) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 18, 2010
50cl bottle. Slight gusher out of the bottle, that yields giant, rocky beige head atop cloudy chestnut brown body. Aroma is medium sweet, sour cherry/wood, some lemon. Taste is medium sweet, nut, some cherry/sour, caramel, light chocolate, herbal/grassy. Light-medium body, light effervescence. Infected for sure, but fortunate to get Brett or something similar.

courtesy of laurent Mousson (WBA) - clear and bright reddish-brown colour with a persistent and solid beige foam; nice lacing; solid flowery hoppiness with a touch of chocolate underneath; notes of mango too; medium-bodied and quite soft palate; very bitter and with a very long flowery hoppy finish

Thanks Presario. A rice beer with brown malts. Pours grapefruit colour with lotsa white head. A distinct barnyard, but not much of that in the taste. Leaves a lot of lace, the carbonation is there and it is drinkable this beer. Not a ot of mouthfeel.

Bottle. Earthy floral toffee malt aroma. Hazy brown with giant, explosive head. Lightly sweet perfume/floral toffee malt and lightly bitter herbal flavor. Different.

DuffMan (9611) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 23, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear amber brown with an averae sandy coloured head showing weak retention. Aroma of weak caramel and plastic. Flavour is weak caramel that is completely overwhelmed by nasty plastic/bandaid nastiness. Couldn’t finish it.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2010 Cask Version at Qbrick. Glowing orange-brown color. Complex aroma of caramel, toffee, dark fruits, pine, plum. A decent amount of piney, citrus hops in the flavor to perfectly balance the toffee and caramel. Great body and smoothness. Very enjoyable and exceptionally well balanced. The flavor of the malt in this one really comes out best in the Real Ale version.

500 ml bottle picked up in Cali for me by Eric- thanks man. Pours a light brown almost amber color with a massive overly-carbonated head. The aroma is lots of hops and some biscuit, almost woody. A spicy brown ale, lots of pine-like hops and dry spicy ginger and light brown malts. Unusual. Almost sour in its spiciness. Infected? Probably. Still, quite nice.
