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.

Had on tap at the Ginger Man in Austin, Tx. Dark copper fading to brown appearance with thick everpresent off-white lacing and a creamy coat of lacing. Aroma has some nutty notes to it, not too pronounced. Flavor has nice caramel notes with a hint of coffee and chocolate all with a roasty bent to it. Slight bitterness undercuts it as well. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy, not too carbonated as some have noted. All in all a most decent brown ale.

Pours a beautiful deep ruby color with a large beige head. Ehh..the same smell as the other Real Ale I had - that old homebrew smell when you know the carbonation has just flown through the roof. The iron-rich flavor was there as well, giving the malt less depth and allowing the hops to be a bit more intrusive than flavorful. Better balance in general than the Pale, but still in need of some work.

Aubrey (3508) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 24, 2004
Deep amber with a big and active head. Lively carbonation; light body. Light caramel malts. Light and flowery hops. Had some zinginess, too, but bitterness was mild. Very small hint of sourness was kind of nice.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2004
Brown. Another "ho-hum" normal, non-offensive brown ale. Moderately aromatic, with notes of dark berries and rich, fruity malts. Nice flavor. Slightly sweet with a fairly pleasant malty flavor giving notes of berries and roasted malts.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 13, 2004
Light brown with a thin head. Malty, nutty aroma. Solid taste witha nice dry finish. Same frothy, interesting mouthfeel.

A nice rich ale. Dark caramel color, creamy head, and thick sweet flavor. Another Texas treasure!

Beer gushed on me. Massive, foamy, beige head that persisted for an eternity. I think my stomach still has a head right now. Reddish brown body. Aroma of rich caramel, cocoa, and carbonic acid. Chalky caramel malt flavor plus chocolate and some earthy hops. A fruity tartness also emerges. Mouthfeel is fizzy like coke except with more body. Chalky buildup is offset by the mild acidity. Improves with warming and outgassing. Thanks to Fly for allowing me to try another Texas local.

kumite56 (473) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - OCT 10, 2004
All in all a nice brown ale. Appearance is great with a large frothy tan head on a dark brown body, mod lacing. Aroma is roasty, nutty and malty. Flavor is earthy, and roasty, some caramel present as well. Lightly bitter finish. Medium bodied.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Appearance: dark brown color, red around the sides, small, dark head. Aroma: very cola-ish, up here in the nose, bits of nuts, and cocoa, but so high in carbonation that it’s spoiled a bit. Mouthfeel, again, too carbonated, some bitterness, medium-bodied, with a middle arrival of fruit (cherries, grapes). Not much to my taste. Better than weaker-bodied browns, but lacks a lot.

richbeir (15) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 10, 2004
Poured with a thick solid, medium beige head. Light nutty sweet, with a Hint of coco, aroma. Light crisp taste, alomost sweet, then quickly turning to malty flavor, ending with a bitter kick. Overall has a well balanced flavor from start to finish.
