COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep Cover Brown Ale is brewed in the tradition of the brown ales commonly enjoyed in the U.K. Despite its reddish-brown color, it is light bodied and slightly sweet, making it a very drinkable and refreshing brew. Dark caramel malts lend this ale its rich color, while toasted and Munich malts provide just enough body to be truly enjoyable.

Pours a clear brown color with a small khaki head that disappears quickly. Light aroma of roasted nuts, caramel and bread. Flavors of roasted malt but with strange metallic taste that I wasn’t a fan of. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Overall this is a so-so beer.....I’d rather just have a Newcastle.

Reviewed from notes. Pours a moderate brown color with a light tan head and a touch of lacing. Head falls down pretty quickly. The nose is a bit of toasted malt along with some nuts, chocolate, and some earthy and floral hops. The taste is a bit of toasted bread and light chocolate. Good, healthy body with good carbonation. Drinks pretty well, but nothing special. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-14-2010

A decent maltiness to it and a little nutty, a good brown ale, better than Newcastle.

Pours medium brown with a fairly small but lingering off-white head. Nose is mostly a brown sugar malt with a touch of fruitiness. Flavor is similarly simple with brown sugar, light roatiness, caramel, and a touch of apple dominating the malt. Hops are very subdued. The finish brings out the fruit quality more heavily than the initial taste. A little watery and run-of-the-mill but quite drinkable.

Wasn’t bad but it seems rather unremarkable. Decent but not memorable. Serving: Bottle

Big carbonation bite, a thin and watery middle, followed by a pleasant, slightly sweet caramel finish. No real hops to speak of.
