This brown is smooth, earthy and easy drink. It has a slightly nutty flavor and was one of my favorites at a recent beerfest. The is the kind of beer you could drink a bunch of.

Right, well, it’s definitely brown, and actually, rather attractive, with a nice (though short) cascade effect. The body is reasonably good, with a frothiness. But, like the more recent renditions of Guinness it emulates, the substance of the flavor has been hollowed out, giving a pale sweetness and a vague caramel quality. There isn’t enough meat in these malts. Can.

Can served in a large tulip,
this brown ale had a clear red pour with brown at the sides of the glass, it gave a one finger off-white head that retreated to a partial cover
and ring, it left some small fingers and spots of lacing on the glass,
this beer had aromas of toasted malt, caramel, faint raisin, some bread and brown sugar sweetness,
there was a slight off smell from I do not know, maybe old malt?
the flavors were toasted malt, caramel, faint chocolate and dark fruit, bread and dark fruit sweetness,
the finish had little bitterness, the off-ness was notice in the taste of this beer, not sure what it is, maybe old malt?
the mouth feel was less than medium, a little thin with no creamy feel on the palate,
I will try this beer again at a later date to see if it is better than this sample.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: sweet caramel, slighty malty. Appearance: dark brown with a one finger head. Taste: I get some brown sugar and chocolate. Kind of watery though. Palate: is a little weak, on the thin side. Overall: not the best, not the worst brown I’ve ever had.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This brew pours a clear amber-brown color with a medium foamy light beige head that dissipates slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Tasted malt and grain in the nose. Light to medium body with sweet malt and brown sugar flavors and low amounts of hops in the background. The finish is short and malty and leaves a touch of grassy hops behind. Fairly one-dimensional and frankly kind of boring overall.

Lift Bridge Brown is an American Brown Ale, named after the double-decker bridge that connects Houghton and Hancock on the Keweenaw Peninsula, which extends north into Lake Superior. It’s a solid brown in color, with a thinner body than I’d expect, and it was overcarbonated in the can that I poured. There’s a touch of chocolate on the roof of the palate, but with a softer finish and dryness on the sides of the tongue, it reminded me a bit of a Bell’s Amber Ale. The bittering hops were slightly out of balance due to a lack of sweetness, particularly for a brown, although the body opens up a bit as it warms. All and all, it’s not a bad effort and a average effort.
