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 nice palate for a brown ale. None of the thinness that seems to plauge so many dark beers. Beer pours rich hearty dark brown with big tan head that is retained. There is nice lacing. Aroma is definately earthy and smokey. Flavor is roasted/smokey with nice full mouthfeel and a spicy/dry finish. Very good brown ale.

Nice chocolate, earthy aroma. Pretty smooth, with a hint of fruit over a drinkable, but sturdy roastiness. The palate gets a little thin, but leaves a trail of chocolate. Per the other bottled Real Ale brews that I've had, they seem to have trouble balancing out the carbonation -- akin to Dogwood brews from Atlanta in that respect -- the pour goes all fizzy but the brew loses CO2. Perhaps it's the heat down here or something.

BBB63 (5961) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 29, 2003
Beautiful brown with large creamy head and good lacing. Aroma of tobacco, caramel, leather, and citrus. Sweet malts are balance by tangy hops, finish was short and mostly clean. Dry and soft mouthfeel, medium-bodied. A nice little brown that offers more on the palate than you would expect.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2003
Light brown color with a good roasted malt aroma. Body is sweet and robust with a touch of sour malt and good complexity. Smooth and easily drinkable, a pretty good brown ale.

Dark red with a tan head. Carbonation evident. Some caramel, dark malts evident. I found this brew rather mellow with little to speak of.

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2003
Little supprised this one hasn't done better. Malty aroma, transluscent brown color. Classic appears for a Brown Ale. The description mentions hops a little comes accrossed in either the flavor, aroma or finish, which is what I'd expect in a Brown Ale. Cheers, Fly

Nuffield (3665) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 23, 2003
Unlike others, I got a lovely, large, frothy head over an opaque dark brown body--wonderful for a category where I've come to expect only baby steps better than Bud. Metallic in the aroma, not much promise. Flavor? A sharp hit of paint, then later just some alcohol, but with big maltiness suggestive of oatmeal. Earthy, too. Good palate other than the sour/hoppy clash that started to intrude. Perhaps I started out with mine too cold--it seemed to let out more roasted flavors over time. Not my first choice for a beer, but you could do worse among brown ales.

foduck (330) - Denton, Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2002
The best of the three, quite dark and bold for a brown ale. Malty, kind of grassy and then chocolate. Comes across a little watery on the palate. When this warmed up it tastes EXACTLY LIKE BEEF JERKY. Not kidding. It gets an extra point just for that.

aracauna (3046) - Georgia, USA - DEC 1, 2002
Dark brown with an OK head that fades quickly. Arome is nice and dark with a hint of citric hops. A bit like cocoa puff and grapefruit juice. The hops fall out in the flavor but it picks up a nice earthy malt. A bit chalky in the flavor.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2005 Aargh! Too much hoppy/spicy bite for a brown. Much like an American brown, and lacking that English mildness I favor (think Newcastle, Tommyknocker Maple Brown). Harsh, baby! Rerate: Enjoyed in Fredericksburg, TX - not as hoppy as I first thought. Light hop action. Bit sweet. Enjoyable.
