COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sure the British introduced the Brown Ale way back in 17th century. It was light brown and sweet, and brewed exclusively with brown malt. Brewer Chad Pieper decided that this was a good foundation, but as Americans do, the style needed to be Americanized. It needed to be roasted, and malty, and it needed to be a little more bitter than the style that was an English second cousin to the mild ale.

wedgie9 (2544) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Tasted on 5/24/12 from a can. Pours clear cola brown with an average tan head that leaves average lace. The nose is malty dark bread and cereal with a hint of earthy yeast. The flavor is pretty much the same, nicely roasted, with some coffee. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long roasted lightly bitter finish.

Suitably brown. Malty, a little nutty, a little resinous. I may have to drink a couple more of these.

12oz can poured into glass. Brown ale out of a can... I’m in. Nice nutty aroma with hints of malts and slight hops. Tasty and definitely worth a chance if it’s in your area.

Sampled this 2012 GABF medalist after the awards. Solid malty and clean taste. Interested me enough to want to buy a can. Not too sweet.

Thanks to my cousin. Malty brown brew, pretty much what one would expect. Well balanced and flavorful, leans toward dry for the style.

rougeau13 (2301) - Richmond, Texas, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Clear dar red-brown with foamy khaki head. Pretty heavily lacing. Aroma of tahini, peanut oil, toast, and smoke. Tastes toasty and a little nutty. Medium bodied and somewhat dry. Solid brown.

That1Guy (2151) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2014
12 oz can (excellent) pours a clear, reddish brown with an off-white head. The first thing I smell is DMS, but getting past that, there is some roast, coffee, biscuit, and diacetyl. Flavor is somewhat sweet, got some corn, bit of roast, and popcorn jelly belly. Drinkable enough, but could use a little work.

Can. This is a nice malty brew with a simple profile that goes well with almost anything.
