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.

It was what I expect in a brown ale! The deep earthiness of the malts gave this a very satisfying flavor and mouthfeel.

Appearance: Pours a clear, medium brown body with a frothy, off-white head. Smell: Toasted breadcrusts, nuts, and some chocolate shavings. Light English hop notes. Taste: Sweet, toasty Munich malts with a light nuttiness and touch of chocolate. Very, very light bitterness. Toasted caramel in the finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Pleasant, easy drinking from this brown ale. Iíd have drank more than one if I didnít only have the one bottle. Oh well!

Bottle. Pours a dark amber, with a really nice bsicut aroma. Taste is a bit malty, but ends with that nice dry taste. A really nice brown ale.

A great brown ale, in my opinion. It has a wonderful malt nose that had me take not 1, not 2, but 3 deep sniffs. Yum. Also had a great hop flavor with more malt. A great brew.

Brownish body, tan head. Caramel malt aroma, bready/cookie-ish flavor/aroma. Sweet. Likeable.

Bottle. Pours copper/brown, with a generous tan head that fades to a half-inch. Sweet malty aroma, with obvious caramel and vanilla leaves me anticipating this beer. The taste doesnít disappoint. Very sweet, with a chocolate, caramel and vanilla flavor that reminds me of a cream soda. Very impressive for such a sweet beer. It balances a sweetness with a fizzy, live mouth feel.

Iím really surprised by the overall low rating this beer has received. While itís not as "dark tasting" as I was expecting it did deliver on taste, appearance and flavor. Part of my beer a month selection this is better than the Otter Creek Pale Ale I rated earlier today. Iíd drink this again. It had a nice aroma, a sweet chocolate cherry taste, good 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.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2003
Dark amber color,small lifeless head that faded fast.Malty sweet caramel aroma.Light malt taste but this brew is heavy on the sweet,sweet creamy caramel,very light hops that don't really seem to come through until the brew warms a bit.the after taste is caramel in a big way,sweet and creamy like a hot caramel roll in the morning.This is a bit one sided for a brew,but i'm a big caramel nut so i will have to go a little extra on the numbers just for the taste.

Nice brownish amber color with a brownish aroma. Slightly fizzy mouthfeel that accompanied a light malty taste.
