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.

Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2013
From bottle. Musky grain, damp aroma. Raw, like a homebrew. A little funky with roasted barley. Carbonic gaseousness. Root beer brown clear with huge rocky-foamy tan lacing head. Medium body with vigorous carbonation (over carbed). Medium malt sweetness with caramel and biscuit. Big carbonic tang and fizzy burn. Neutral brown ale flavor with light tang in the finish and nutty smooth after.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours clear, dark brown; huge head and lots of lacing. Roasted malts, nuts, some caramel and some chocolate. Taste is also sweet, smokey some chocolate there too. Nice roasty bitter finish. OK beer.

mikemccarthy (91) - Huntington, West Virginia, USA - APR 7, 2013
Pours a deep, translucent copper with a thin, tan head that stays. Good lacing. Roasted, nutty aroma with hints of caramel and chocolate. Rich, full, creamy mouthfeel with subtle effervescence. Pleasant taste -- nutty with chocolate notes. A rather tasty representative of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for the Daystrom M-5

Bottle pour. Heavy on the head production for me. Airy mouthfeel. Slightly below average brown in my opinion.

TomTron (419) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Pours a dark brown with a thick, sudsy, off-white head. Aromas of brown sugar and caramel malts. Flavor is a bit creamy and the malts pretty much dominate, but it’s rather one dimensional and run of the mill. Drinkable, but forgettable.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Gusher. Had to sit this one on the sink on a 45 or so degree angle to allow the foam to come out at its own pace for a good half hour or so. Brown with a very large light beige head that sticks around forever. Aroma of brown sugar, nuts, grains, toffee and a metallic quality. Taste is metallic with light nuts and malt. Fizzy, slippery and chalky. Awful in most facets.

ThreeCats (633) - ISRAEL - FEB 8, 2013
Big head over clear brown body. Aroma of sourness and cardboard. Taste sour and a bit roast. Spoiled.

Roasty nut aromas with a touch of caramel or burnt sugar. Deep brown with an off white cap. Roast bitterness with a subtle sweetness. Medium bodied with bittersweet finish.
