COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Slow-Fermented Brown Ale is a beautiful chestnut brown colored beer. It is fermented at an unusually cool temperature which slows down the fermentation. These conditions stress the yeast, resulting in a slow methodical fermentation in which the resultant flavors are clean, somewhat like a lager, with the added characteristic of a creamy smooth mouthfeel. This brown ale has a rich roast caramel flavor, with a subtle sweetness in the finish, delicately balanced with hop undertones.

Bottle. Pours an opaque brown with a frothy tan head. Smells of grain, malt, and an earthy nutty quality. Flavor is sweet malt/caramel into some bitter hops. Light body.

AirForceHops (2712) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 6, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Dark ruby color with brown hues. Thin lasting head. Nose is caramel and lots of nuts. Hazelnuts, earthy walnut, Roasted nuts. Honestly the flavor is toffee and more nuts. Good nut flavor. Creamy texture with a nice smoothness that slides down your throat. Overall if you like nuts, you will love this brown ale, tasty! Really good for the style.

Draft 7/30/13 (Cooperstown)-Pours brown with a small head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and hops. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew is a littledifferent brown but still rather tasty.

Had on tap. Seemed to be more of a creamy pale ale then a brown ale. Not much smell, light red color. Pretty hoppy. Wont have again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft. Solid brown color with slight red tones, and a decent white head. Caramel notes. A nice drinkable brown, but not much going on.
