COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Caramel brown with a hint of chocolate, Brewhouse Brown melds four kinds of malt to create a satisfying, thirst-quenching brew. Best enjoyed at 55 degrees, this ale is slightly rich and roasty, yet leaves a dry finish. It is the perfect companion for a hearty meal.

Very dark brown out of the bottle with a foamy tan head. Sweet grainy nose. Brown sugar, caramel sweetness. Some graininess with some toasty notes. Goes down very easily. Okay but unremarkable. Thanks Loius.

Indra (2619) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 19, 2004
Bready, malty aroma, lightly toasty, grainy and sweet with notes of dark brown sugar and lightly estery yeast, some faint raisin in the background. Deep, dark red-brown color, cloudy, with a lasting, creamy head. Flavor is sweet up front, becoming toasty and nutty, and with a small amount of cocoa, dark fruit and bitterness towards the finish. Palate is thin and highly effervescent -- almost creamy, but yet quite. Medium-bodied. Odd, slightly metallic aftertaste. Kind of strange overall, really. Not too bad, though.

Bottle pours dark brown, HUGE fluffy off-white head, with very sticky lacing.   I get a somewhat nutty, bready, yeasty belgian type of aroma on the nose.   Very unusual.   Flavor is somewhat odd, a bit malty with a slight toasted malt flavor, but also a very light Belgian Dubbel quality as well (perhaps in mouthfeel and palate).   Very carbonated this one is.   Seems a bit light too.   I dunno, its rather ordinary and non-eventfull.   While certainly not offensive, its also not very interesting.   Body and mouthfeel are a bit below average.   Meh...   Thanks goes out to 123456green for the trade!

Bottle, Good nose ,Rootbeer, the real kind not pepsi or cokes versions, lite fruit grape drink, yeasty bready. Orangy dark brown, Small head, sediment poured into second glass. Roasty sweet. carmel, lite metallic or fennel kinda thing, nutty. Thin lite bodied, a roasty bitterness that fades. Good, I just don’t seek out browns that much. One of the forgotten styles.

The beer came in attractive bottle with a painting of the real ale brewhouse. The beer poured into a pint glass looked dark brown with reddish highlights, and developed a light brown foamy head, that rose to a height of two inches. The head left good lacing around the sides of the glass, and the overall beer presentation was very good. The aroma was inviting, with a mix of roasted and nutty malt flavors, and a dollop of hops. The taste was pretty much as the aroma indicated. Sweet and nutty, with notes of brown sugar, caramel, and some spiciness, the taste was not overly complex, but was god enough to make you keep drinking. The yeast in the bottle was a dusty, and cobwebby presence drying things up a bit. The letdown here was the mouthfeel. The beer felt way too thin on the palette, with an empty feeling that grew with each sip. This was a real downer, as the taste had the beginnings of a good beer. In the end, the watery mouthfeel became the most dominant character. As a result of the light mouthfeel, the alcohol was up front, and not well hidden. I wish that they had worked on the recopied a bit more to get some more malts in the bottle. Thanks 123456green for this bonus.

Good creamy Texas brew. Pours golden brown med head. Roasted sweet malts. Very enjoyable beer. Nice smooth finish. Nothing over the top, but good nonetheless. Will drink again.

One of the better Real Ale offerings. Light pleasant toasted nose, clear brown color, tall tan head. Roasted and sweet malt tastes in the middle. Slightly bitter end - like a weak coffee. Full mouthfeel and substantial body. Better than many British brown ales. Respectable, though not very exciting.

My wife said that this smelled like dirty water, I thought I smelled some malty toffee. Translucent brown color, tan head around the edge. Has a nice malty caramel-chocolatey taste, but not in your face, mild. Gets a bit sweet then drying towards the finish. Thanks to fly- you're super!

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2006 Another great beer from Blanco, TX. Almost completely opaque with a small creamy head. Slight chocolate flavor and nice hopping action on top of all of it. Overall a very solid beer.
