The brown and caramel malts give this classic British style brown ale a lovely mouth feel and a fragrant, toasty malt aroma.

NOTE: They sometimes serve "Grizzly Red" in place of "Brown Bear" and use the same labeled spot on the sampler tray. Check if you are unsure.

omhper (21416) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Nut brown. Neutral aroma. Sweet and roasty with syrupy mouthfeel. There are some pleasant roasty malt and the finish holds light licorice-like hoppy bitterness, but it’s just not firm enough. The malt profile needs some work.

brokensail (13668) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 13, 2012
The lightest brown ale ever...amber pour with a white head. Swee toffee and sugar notes, a bit of toast, and bread. Light citrus peel and floral hops. The flavor is a bit watery. Some toast and bread malt sweetness, very mild hop notes, and a bit of cardboard.

Oakes (13600) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 21, 2006
Dark amber colour. Light nutty aroma. Strange - some very sweet almondy, molassey character but some astringent roast in there as well. Neither element is all that appealing and together they don’t work at all.
