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.

An ok beer. The aroma is nice, sweet and malty, but the flavor falls flat. Not thick or bold enough, not enough malt flavor. They just need to kick it up a notch if they want to compete with Bell’s Best Brown.

Pours brownish amber with an off white head. Aroma is caramel and nuts. Flavor is lightly malty, grainy, bitter, slightly astringent finish.

ksbeerkid (28) - Emporia, Kansas, USA - DEC 13, 2009
bottle, pour very dark orange with a thick off white head, no lacing. Definite chocolate aroma, some bourbon as well, kind of reminds me of a faint GI bourbon county stout. Taste is smokey and chocolatey with slight alcohol mouthfeel. smooth palate for me, just like most browns. Very Very VERY average beer here.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a mostly clear, amber-orange colored body with a finger-width, frothy, tan head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is sweeter, hazelnut malts. A light cherry and some other fruits as well, but pretty weak overall. Flavor is slightly thin and watery up front. Nutty malts and a light cherry fruit mixture before this actually finishes with some flavor. Light, earthy bitterness and a toasty toffee make the finish somewhat enjoyable. Fairly dry with a medium length aftertaste. Overall, despite the enjoyable backend of this beer, there’s too much inconsistency throughout. Weak, nutty and malty aroma with a mostly thin, watery flavor. Eh...

Pours a light brown with little head. Very little taste and watery on the palate. Pretty disappointing

sinkr (323) - Odenton, Maryland, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Bottle->honker: pours a white creamy, lasting head that exhibits good lacing atop a cloudy dark orange body. Aroma of root beer, sweet taste, medium body, astringent finish. Ok but not great.

355 mL.Shared with SpencerDB.

Pours a hazy reddish amber with a thin, tan head that has little retention and no lacing. Aroma is sugary, malty, strawberry like a doppelbock. There is some strange wet dog/barn house/mustiness in there too. Taste is very weak: mostly seltzer water. Disappointing.

The best way I can recreate my experience with this beer is simply disappointment. The aroma is promising with hints of maple/molasses but the taste is just lacking. The beer lacks body, is watery, and has few hops. Dry finish. Not bad, but probably not going to buy another

Trev (1956) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2009
pours amber brown with a medium lasting cap. light roast malt aroma, some sweet nuttiness flavour has caramel and maple syrup tones, more of the faint roasty tones and a very light bitterness in the finish as well. Body is a bit light though.
