COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Snowshoe Grizzly Brown Ale is the darkest beer available at the brewery, with a distinct, roasted malt character, dark color and medium hop finish. It pours out a deep brown color with ruby highlights, the head Bunyanesque in size, semi-creamy in texture. The aroma is of lightly toasted grain, caramel, and black walnut sweetness. Grizzly Brown Ale is brewed with five different malts giving it a rich roasted flavor and a smooth finish.

bhensonb (10702) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 21, 2006
Light malty aroma, perhaps a hint of chocolate. It’s that malt aroma you found in chocolate malts! Deep reddish brown color with a monster persisting head. This may be unpasteurized. Thin mouthfeel. Starts with malt, goes to a very roasty toasty malt. Not a whole heck of a lot of hop here, but it’s tasty.
