COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big Cypress Brown Ale is a bold, American-style brown ale that would make our phriends from Vermont proud. It is made with lots of English brown malt to give a deep, smoky roastiness. Caramel and chocolatey characters abound along with an earthy hop aroma and flavor.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 11, 2005
Pint pulled at the Magnolia Brewpub in San Francisco, a dark black with a large head which was creamy but frothy on top. A malty aroma, toffee-like. Flavour is reminiscent of stewed fruits with a hint of sweet bitterness. Very very smooth in the mouth. On of my all time favourites!

PorterPounder (5339) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2005
On tap at the San Francisco "Brews on the Bay" Festival. Dark brown pour, off-white head; wort-like vegetable-like aroma. Pick up some coffee in the flavor, a bit of back end nuttiness. Smooth, crisp mouthfeel. Ok bbrewpub brown ale.

motelpogo (6203) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 14, 2004
sweet and very thin, just tastes of watered-down nougat, low on any roasted flavours, very dull

Cask at Magnolia. Dark burgundy. Mild, thin palate, a little maple, brown malts, some wood, maybe some smoke. Decent.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2004
Tap@Magnolia Pub and brewery, San Fransisco- pretty sweet and thin, some toffee and nuts, grainy texture. Not a big fan of this one.

bb (6715) - Alamo, California, USA - APR 24, 2004
Draft (handpump). Little aroma. Brown beer with a quickly dissapating head. Slightly burnt sour taste that was a little vinegry, but also smooth enough. Very light watery body. Maybe the cask had been on for too long and the beer was slightly off, or maybe not.

Tap - cask. Dark brown color with ruby hints and a tan head. Smooth malty flavor with some caramel. Roasted, banana, and chocolate round out the flavors.

Relatively light bodies brown ale which is mostly malt in nose and palate with brief finish

On cask: Their description says this is an American Brown but I really don’t get the hop blast that I would expect from most American browns. This beer has a very subtle hop presence. Quite malty with a medium roasted character. I would prefer a little more body. On cask, this stuff goes down quite easily and is fairly tasty.
