Schlafly American Brown Ale starts with a classic British brown recipe crafted with caramel and chocolate malts for sweetness and color. Then we fortify it with the bold flavor and aroma of American hops.

Tasted on 12/29/13 from a 12oz can purchased at Craft Brewed. Pours clear dark auburn with an average white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is caramel, vanilla, and chocolate malt with pine resin and grassy hops. The flavor is almost the same, with the resin hops really shining through, along with the chocolate and vanilla malt taking more of a back seat, and even less caramel. The body is light with lively carbonation and a medium hoppy and bitter chocolate finish.

Thin tan head thats short lived with little lacing. Clear, brown in color. Nose of slight caramel malts and minerals. Body is lightly medium with a soft carbonation. Dry malts, earth and slight hop undertones of pine and caramel, little nutty. Dry, quick finish that toasts up as it warms. Been bangin a few of these lately, not sure why either. Decent little quaff. Can from statelinliquors.

Way too bitter, I can’t even get any malty goodness through the overly bitter beer taste.

Pours a clear dark amber with a full antique lace head. Toasted malt aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt, buttery, nutty with a slight vegetal character (celery). Hop bitterness, though not over the top, is pronounced. Good, but I prefer an English brown.

Lukaduke (1735) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Pours a deep amber color with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose smells like bitter oatmeal and a touch of toasted malts. On the palate its reads closer to a amber but has a strangely malty grassy backbone that is strange. Slightly metallic, strangely bitter stale grain, doesn’t read as hop bitterness but more of a cardboard and old stale malts.

Brown-amber pour with a white head. The aroma has some toffee and grass notes. The flavor is full of light roasted malt, toffee, coffee and grass. The beer is very dry. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

12oz can into a pint glass. Pours a clear brown with initially a large head that faded to a thin layer fairly quickly leaving a good amount of lacing. Aroma of nuts, caramel, and biscuits. Taste is more bitter hops than anything, but with a mild nutty taste, roasty malts, caramel, and toast. Dry finish of malty bread. Thin and watery texture, average carbonation. Rather plain, nothing particularly noteworthy. Not bad, but nothing special.

Hoppier than your typical brown ale, which is no bad thing, but somehow doesn’t add up to greatness.
