COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American Brown Ale
A traditional English-style brown ale, but with more body. Its deep brown color comes from a combination of Chocolate and Black malts. Tall, dark and smooth – the perfect cure for the domestic beer blahs.

kassner (1521) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2011
Brown slightly cloudy, with a modest head that did not hold. A little high in carbonation, but lots of subtile tatstes, with caramel, coffee, and alittle smoke.very well balanced for flavor.

Suttree (6007) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 26, 2011
Brown, as you might expect, with a thin white head. Smells like chocolate and some brown sugar. Taste is lightly hoppy, with some sweet brown sugar notes. Dryish finish.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 5, 2011
Bottle from Sam’s in Durham. Pours chestnut, clear, with an impressive beige head. Nice lacing. Nose shows malts of nuts and mild chocolate. Metallic interference. Taste hits malt notes but without the metal. Light palate. Simple but lessened by the weird nose.

emacgee (4585) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Pours a dark copper brown with one finger of crackling sandstone head. Nose is off, grainy and kind of slick with mild acetic notes and a vegetal character. Lots of toasted grain in the flavor with some herbal hop character. Medium bodied with a slightly dry finish.

unclemike (2870) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - FEB 6, 2011
poured an orange tinted brown, with a fairly large light brown head. Aroma of nuts, caramel, vanilla and apples, A bit strange, but ok. Flavor was solid for the style; blend of nuts, caramel and chocolate. Slight bitter finish. Average for the style

j12601 (9549) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 31, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear ruby tinged brown. Toast, a bit of nutty malt on the nose with some touches of roasting coffee. Medium bodied, smooth and sweet with a nice amount of malt to it. Nice mouthfeel, creamy and soft. Finishes up with some nutty malt and a nice toasty bitterness.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2011 Pours a reddish brown with small off white head. Smells of toasted malts, chocolate and molasses. A nutty, malt flavor with some bitterness. The body is light to medium with crisp carbonation. Overall, a decent brown ale.

Dorwart (2507) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Wow, some really nasty looking stuff at the bottom of the bottle. Almost looks like cream of wheat. Strong head of fine bubbles. Roasty and nutty aroma with some molasses. Color is a dark mahagony brown. Slightly bitter flavor but is dominated by roasted flavors. Some light grainy notes and tea leaves. Lingering roasty and bitter finish. An ok brew.

heemer77 (5286) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Slightly hazy deep brown body with a wispy thin lightly off white head. The nose is the expected rich toffee and pecans. There is also a hint of apple. The taste has black tea and old caramel. There is also a strong malty bread dough character. This reminds me a lot of Newcastle and they nailed that style of brown ale. Actually, this is pretty nice for the style, but the carbonation is a touch harsh for me.
