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.

I found it thin and uneventful, I would disagree that it was in the UK tradition, this can only be said if the lack of hops makes it so (NIMHO). This is brown ale that a mainstream drinker could like.

Malty thick at the back of the swallow but thin and hoppy upfront. this continues thru the lingering finish. Brownish red with a short lived head. average at best.

Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium orange-brown. Aroma is moderately malty (nutty, caramel), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly acidic, moderately bitter, lightly sweet. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.

This beer was one of the 12 beers featured in a beer tasting event I hosted back in April. The avg. rating among the 10 participants was 7.1 out of 10 (my rating was a 7 out of 10). Not having started rating beers using the ratebeer method and scale at that point, I just had another opportunity to do so. Heavy malt and moderate hop aroma. Avg. sized, creamy, off-white head which mostly diminishes. Murky, reddish-brown body. Flavor is heavy malt in the initial moutfeel with moderate bitter notes becoming apparent as it warms. Long in duration, medium to full bodied. Very tasty.

Very red for a brown ale. A little too red for my liking. So red that it would have been outlawed during the Cold War. Someone must have colored outside the lines with the red Crayola, who stole the brown?

A little more robust than the Dillon Dam brown ale that I just tried. It has some more malt and caramel taste, which is a good thing.

hmmmm - nothing too memorable about this beer. It is worth a try, sweet aftertaste.

Impressive beer from Left Hand, so far I have liked everything they have to offer. Sweet caramel aroma and nice malty/brown sugar flavor. I’ll definitely try this one again.
