5% Northern English Brown "nut brown" style beer which features a rich, dark bready, biscuity base with noticeable toffee, nut-like and a hints of coffee and chocolate flavors. We use our water system to give this beer a soft malty character on the finish so its easy to enjoy multiple pints.

(En fût au tasting room North Park): Un vent rôti envahi mes narines, le brown a été utilisé avec amour. Le liquide est assez mince et engouffrable, très chocolaté, pain grillé avec une touche minérale. Très solide.

My Bottom Line:
Toasted malts leap from this Brown Ale’s lean profile, leaving room for a few hops and mild fruitiness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the misty brown.
-Carbonation is quite bubbly, which doesn’t fit the toastiness that much, imho.
-The mouthfeel is on the dry side for the style.
-Drinkability is quite high.

On tap at their North Park bar.

Light brown pour with an off-white head. Mild roasted malt aroma with plenty of toasted bread, toffee, and nuts. A moderate sweetness, some earthy hops, and caramel. Mild hop bitterness to the flavor, tons of toasted nuts, toffee, and toasted bread. Light earthiness, chocolate, roasted malt, and some moderate sweetness.

Pours light for a Brown Ale (a light reddish brown with a small off white head). Aroma is of toasted malts, caramel, some hazelnut, and general nuttyness. Taste is nutty and malty with little hops and includes some hazelnut , caramel,and some molasses notes. Has a medium body with a slightly dry, with a slightly creamy but also slightly fizzy mouthfeel and a slightly dry, mostly sweet finish. overall, a pretty tasty English style brown ale that is lighter and more sessionable then your average American brown ale.

Nut brown color. No head. Nutty and very pleasant flavor. Slightly metallic/acidic.
