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.

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.

Nice medium foamy head, brown colored with some tones of red. Malty and toffee like nose. Light milkchocolate taste. Long lasting malt and cereal aftertaste. But all in all not that interesting.

Meaty, chocolatey nose. Flavor is the same but light, and the palate is waaay too carbonated.

This beer just stank of alcohol. there was almost no flavor but the alcohol! A good, brown color and a reasonable head. But an awful beer. I've found that almost all the Real Ales are!

This brew was generously passed along from Fly in Texas to BeanDip, then to me, SO thank you both; especially FLY, That was very kind of you!
I’ve gotta tell ya, this beer pours dark as the Abyss, with a massive creamy and frothy lite caramel colored head. The aroma is all chocolate malt, well maybe a pound or two of toffee. The flavor is a plethora of malt, more chocolate, more toffee, notes of peat, coffee, almonds & walnuts, but a little hop to back it all up. Truthfully I’m really impressed! This is far closer to a sweet stout in my books, a bit bland, but damn tasty!
FLY, you shouldn’t have, but you did, so THANKS!!

I would probably give this a much higher rating were it not for my being anything but a brown ale fan. I seem to be able to distinguish when one is a good one from discussions with other fans of the style. I would say this is a pretty decent one.
