This beer is an excellent session ale for those who like their beer a little on the malty side. A lighter body and balanced sweetness make this brown one to remember. Pisgah Brown is a rock solid brew.

jrob21 (3454) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Sampled from a growler. This is full of your requisite nutty character and caramel malt flavors. Aromas of crystal sugar and a bit of toasted wheat grain. Caramel sweetness in the flavor. Very nice example of an underappreciated style.

NachlamSie (3294) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2012
Pint at City Billiards. Pours a cloudy amber/brown. The aroma is mild and malty with notes of earth, berries, apples and caramel. This is medium bodied. Inoffensive and drinkable, this has some leafy hops, fruity hints and a bittersweet, almost earthy finish. Hard to pinpoint as a brown ale, with it’s lack of "toasty" qualities.
