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.

Pours clear brown with an average sized off-white head. Caramel malt aroma. Light sweetness, a bit of hop dryness but no hop flavor or aroma. A bit of carbonic acid bite to the palate, effervescent and light bodied.

guzzler67 (1670) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Clear brown appearance with a medium size, tan head and a fair amount of lacing. Subtle aroma leads off with caramel malts and ends with a faint whiff of chocolate. Toasty, malty taste; some bitterness. Hops were rather muted. Medium-to-light bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel, a fairly thin palate, and a short lived finish.

pablo t (3) - Mechanicsville, Virginia, USA - FEB 15, 2009 does not count
Pured a medium brown with some reddish hues. A thin head with some rapidly fading lacing. Some floral hops and toasted hops in the aroma. Taste included some toasted a little toffeee like drier maltiness finishing off with some hops bitternes. A fuller than medium body with plenty of carbonation. Overall a pleasant English brown with enough character to make you want some more but still within the style.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - FEB 14, 2009
Poured to a light brown with thin off-white head that lingered awhile and left little lacing. Nose was a combination of malty nuts and chocolate and the taste represented the same. Motuhfeel was flat and somewhat watery, ut the finish was smooth. I’m going against the grain some on this one, in that I thought it was a decent beer, especially for a beer I had never heard of.

12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a brownish copper with a small head. Good lacing. Nutty and roasty malt aroma. Taste is nuts, caramel malts and a fruity finish. Thin bodied.

SynergyXJ (510) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Bottle, #449. Light brown pour with small head. Medium roasted malt aroma. Kind of nutty malt flavor. Decent, but not impressive.

ChainGangGuy (4808) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 21, 2009
16 oz. - $4.75 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia. Appearance: Clear, brown body with a small, though sustained, white head. Very coating lacing. Smell: Fairly restrained maltiness smelling only of some vague, nutty brown malts. Taste: Dry, dark caramel and shelled nuts make up the malts with only a minor sweetness. Small, small hint of scorched grains. Slight, lightly earthy hop bitterness. Dry, crisp, short finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Just a tad watery. Drinkability: Sure, it’s very drinkable, but I certainly would appreciate a heft to both its body and overall malt character.
