This brown, or dark mild, is a favorite of the brewer. Lots of malt character but no extra sweetness makes this a flavorful brew. Using Marris Otter as the base malt and all English hops make this a true to style brown.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 19, 2011
A: The pour is almost brown, perhaps dark amber, with a nice khaki head on it. S: Sweet and bready malts lead the way with a nice toasted malt aroma. There’s a hint of nuttiness and sweet milk chocolate. Though it is sweet, there is only a subtle toffee and caramel aroma. T: Heavy on the toasted malts with a slight nuttiness. Sweet toffee undertones as well as a little bit of caramel. Lots of bread flavor with a mild roast flavor. M: Medium in body with a smooth, medium carbonation. O: Was expecting more of an English brown ale, but was pleasantly surprised to get a mild. Nice smooth flavors that are pleasant and easy to enjoy.

A pretty damn good brown. Nose was a little boring, hints of cocoa. Taste was smooth, lactic, hint of sweetness, cocoa, a really good brown ale. making the best out of a typically lame style.
