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.

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.

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!

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2004
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.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - AUG 27, 2004
Draught at Flying Saucer Draught Emporium, Houston, Texas.
Tan head on a dark amber/brown body. Mild and sweet roasted malt and toffee aroma with fruity tones. Also sweet in the flavor with a nice roasted and smoked tone. Caramel and spices also with some hop bitterness in the end. A good beer, but not extraordinary.

IndianaRed (3220) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 25, 2004
Bottle Pours a dark carmel brown with a fluffy, large light brown head that has some serious endurance, and leaves just spotty lacing. Aroma is a nice carmel apple, malty, wet cardboard flavor. Probly served a bit too cold at 43F. Tasste is sharp and slightly citrus with the hops lurking around. Interesting that the "brown" tree bark, smoke taste is almost invisible untill several seconds later as an early after taste. Then that goes away leaving a nice faint slightly bitter hops/woody trailer. Feel is a bit thin and the carbonation is acceptable. Quite drinkable and goes down easy. Not bad..IMO a bit underrated. Thanks goes out to 123456Green for the trade.
