COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Watership Brown is Red Hare’s hopped up brown ale. Medium brown in color, this beer starts off with an almost nutty nose. The initial taste is very sweet and then followed by the roasted character of the darker grains used in this beer. At roughly 55 IBU’s the hop character is very noticeable but not overpowering and balances with the 7.2% ABV for a slightly sweet, somewhat hoppy, and definitely roasted finish.

Bork (249) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Very fruity aroma and start and some pleasant coffee notes to finish. Flavors are left a little too much to themselves, without a good base to lean on, to be really satisfactory.

can @ Habersham Beverage / Savannah GA --- Appealing looking clear rich ruby brown color, thick, smooth off-white head, sheets of lace. Aroma is an appealing nutty malt. Taste is roasted nutty malt that turns a little sweeter in the palate, then moving to a little bittering in the finish. A well-conceived, balanced brew. Recommended.
