Free State Uptown Brown


Formerly brewed at Free State Brewing Company
Lawrence, Kansas USA
Style: Brown Ale | Ratings: 3 | Alcohol: -
This is a very special brew that you will only see once a year when we make our Owd Mac's Imperial. The Owd Mac's is made from a huge grin bill and only uses the first, sweetest worts. There is enough sugar left in the mash when we're done to make another full strength beer. The result is this Uptown Brown. It has a great roasty malt flavor and a deep brown color. It is gently hopped with vanguard and ahtanum hops to round out the flavor and aroma. The finish is extremely smooth. Although the bitterness level and the Original Gravity are identical to the John Brown and the color is similar (though a bit darker) you will find this to be a completely independent brew.
O.G. -13./1052. Hops - 18 IBUs
