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.

12oz can, purchased 2/23/15 from Habersham in Savannah. Hazy brown / red color. Thicker khaki head, that retains well, and leaves pretty thick full sheets of lace. Kind of a tropical fruity jolly rancher flavor up front, followed by some toasty spicy malt, touch of chocolate. Mild nuttiness. Medium body, with a very full mouthfeel. Kind of creamy and thick. Smooth, lighter to moderate strength carbonation. Moderate sweet taste. Good light to moderate bitter. Very mild bite. Pretty nice, complex flavorful bold amber/brown ale. Better than expected. Would be cool to try fresh.

Poured from the tap into a pint mug at the Marietta Pizza Company. Aroma- Has a nice hop/malt and bread aroma Appearance- This is an amber colored brew with a off-white head. Taste- A nice malt flavored beer with a nice hop finish, the large alcohol content is noticeable (in a good way) Palate- This is a medium bodied brew with light carbonation and a creamy to oily texture. Overall- First Red Hare product, better than average and worth having again.

Can poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of cocoa, caramel and light fruitiness. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of caramel, light cocoa and a hint of earthiness with a smooth lingering caramel finish.

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.
