An all-malt American Brown Ale with just enough hop presence to keep it from being too sweet. The aroma comes predominantly from the malt with a hint of the spiciness of imported British hops. Seven distinct specialty malts are milled at the brewery and mashed together, providing a complex, nutty flavor with subtle, roasted undertones. This Pearl Street original is a favorite amongst locals and professional beer judges alike. Gold Medal Winner at the World Beer Championships, 2003. Available on draught year ‘round.

Nice looking beer and very drinkable, but a little weak on flavor and aroma for a brown. Fair amount of alcohol on the finish, which was nice. I'll buy it again when I want something light and crispy.

yngwie (14669) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle. A clear, brown beer topped by a dense, finger-thick, light beige head leaving lacings. The aroma is lightly yeasty, with nuts, caramel and some roasted malts. Some bitterness in the flavor, with roasted malts and nuts doing most of the work. Medium body, pleasant carbonation, quite dry on the palate. Lasting finish with caramel and nuts. Rather boring this one, at least it didn’t ring my bells. 141219

madvike (3032) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Bottle - Pours dark rosy brown with a foamy light tan head. Nose is dry bread malt and peanut butter, a hint of toffee, and just a touch of grassy hops. Taste is malty, with waves of dry bread, more peanut butter, and some mineral on the finish. Very little hopping--just some herbal hops in the background. Smooth and well-carbonated. Just decent, as the peanut butter really detracts.

2 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s taproom, as part of an 8-beer flight. Consumed on 5-14-14. Pours an amber / light brown with beige / taupe head. Good lacing. Lighter in color than a typical brown. Clear liquid. Light to moderate effervescence. Crisp, tart aroma is nutty and features scents of chocolate-covered almonds, mocha, and carob. Nutty flavor matches the aroma. Hazelnut element. Fruity / floral finish. Aqueous and a bit lively in the palate. Insubstantial palate effects. Pleasant but forgettable overall.

AWISLguy (1564) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 5, 2014
On tap at Grizzly’s in LaCrosse, on Eric’s recommendation (the place recommendation was great, this brew, not so much ... but they had nothing else on tap and he liked it). Pours brownish tan with a foamy white head leaving nice streaks of lace. Aroma has brown sugar, toffee. Taste not as good, thin, sweet. Blah even for a brown.
