Wow, this beer is really...average. Actually, compared to most other brown ales I’ve had, it’s below average. I spent a few days in Houston, and the beer scene in TX seems pretty lackluster. Despite the fact I loved the Divine Reserve #5, I think that the warm TX whether tends to "lighten" the popular craft beers produced there. That thought neatly explains this particular beer. It looks and smells a lot like a lager, but does have some dark roastiness that tastes like caramel and molasses and brings it into line with other brown ales I’ve had. Mouthfeel is a little light and watery.

This draft brew from the brewery poured a head of medium sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light brown colored body. The mild aroma was brown malt. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of brown malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

Saint Arnold Brown Ale has a thin, soapy, cream-colored head and a clear, bubbly, copper appearance. The faint aroma is of sweet brown bread, bread crust, and pecan shell. Taste is of sweet brown bread, with a slight, underlying bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Saint Arnold Brown Ale finishes semi-dry, mellow, and highly drinkable. Overall, this is really well done. I recommend getting it and trying it. RJT

Tasted this beer on tap at the Saint Arnold Brewery in Houston, TX. A great malty brown ale, with a bit of sweetness and cocoa notes.

Well made brown ale that is nice to have year round. Decent blend of hops and malt that is well balanced and easy to drink.

One of the lightest flavored brown ales I have had. It has an interesting bite at the start, but it finishes clean. I suspect the bite is due mainly to the slightly heavy carbonation. Overall though, it is a refreshing brown and it would make a great intro-beer for someone not familiar with the style. I will certainly drink one again.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2012 A clear mahogany beer with a big, off-white head. The aroma is of light notes of caramel and chocolate, but mostly grainy malts. The taste is mildly bitter and sweet, mainly obeying the aroma notes. The mouthfeel is medium to light. Refreshing.

Now this is a good brown ale to sink your taste buds into! Very robust in flavor and not heavy on the belly! Easy to drink would pair up well with some hearty smoked meats at the BBQ. This one had a nice smooth texture to it but it was also a little bit ‘chewy’ (which is a plus for me). This would be a great starter brew for those that haven’t tried any in the brown ale style of brews!
