COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

nilloc1204 (16) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 24, 2014
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.
