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.

Bottle. Muddled Brown pour, little head. Generic Brown ale. Malty aroma, very thin. Aftertaste was not good. Pedestrian at best

tennessejed420 (927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 19, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Malty aroma with caramel. Pours red brown with off white head. Taste is slightly caramel sweet. Pretty watery. As far as brown ales go, not a favorite.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2009
Serving: 12 oz. bottle. Appearance: Hazy deep brown with a foamy, tan head. The head is pretty small and is gone quickly. No lacing left behind. Aroma: Light nose. Slightly fruity with notes of nuts and light brown sugar. Taste: Leaning heavy on the brown sugar side with some caramel and a slight earthiness to it. No hop prescience and definitely on the watery side. Palate: Medium carbonation with a medium, slightly watery mouthfeel. Short finish. Overall: A simple brown that could benefit from greater body and depth. Not terrible but certainly not worth seeking out.

BPW #5 12 oz bottle at Shallos in Indy. Appearance is a nice brown hue with little head. Nose is coffee and chocolaty malts. Prune/raisin flavors with chocolate and coffee undertones. Moth is dry and airy. Overall a nice beer.

Foxbush (1322) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 12, 2009
This was a purchase of six bottles from Corks and Kegs in Richmond. The brown ale poured a light brown yet clear when you hold the glass to a light. The head was smallish and disappeared. It is sweetish ale with mostly malt flavors and no hops. Nice finish but lacks body.

awiseman01 (469) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Dan’s Bachelor Party Extended Weekend Rating #3 of 90. Bottle at Shallo’s in Greenwood. Pours dirty brown, no head. Smell is mostly brown malts, toffee and prune. Flavors follow, goes down light and easy. Light palate, but enjoyable.

zdk (1816) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 29, 2009
Bottle: as a brown ale, this is getting "out of the style." Pours dark brown with a rich arouma of chocolate and molasses, which I love. The taste falls short of the promising nose, though: molasses, pruney malts with a bitter, dry finish.

nbutler11 (1267) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 12, 2009
Bottle from Sun Devil. Pours like date juice with a trim off-white head. Smells and tastes predominantly of raspberry tea, brown sugar, hops, and faint cream. Fair, if not strange.
