COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A beautiful, deep copper brown ale. It has a full, malty body with hints of chocolate, a touch of sweetness and a light hop flavor. A complex malt character is created by combining five different types of malts. It has a rich, creamy head with a fine lace. The light fruitiness, characteristic of ales, is derived from a proprietary yeast strain. Saint Arnold Brown Ale is best consumed at 45-50° Fahrenheit.

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.

I wasn’t too crazy about this beer. Don’t get me wrong it was good. Tasted really identical to a Scottish ale (Belhaven I think) I had earlier that day.

Smells of toffee and chocolate. Strong brown sugar start. Slight bitterness. Similar to me like a bock

Bottle - Toffee, grains and light chocolate. Clear amber with a thin head. Caramel sweetness with a touch of toasted malts and nuts. Pretty average, I like mine with a bit more malt.

Pours brown from the bottle, producing an off-white head. I detected a spicy fruitiness in the flavor. Earthy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerenberger (1475) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Aroma of sweet malt. Pours a medium amber with a rapidly dissipating off-white head and no lacing. The taste is lightly sweet. Bread, biscuit and hint of grain in the finish. Medium-light body with mild carbonatin. Watery mouthfeel. Overall, I’m glad I only bought one 12oz. bottle. SADLY DIISAPOINTING.

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.
