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.

Can poured a clear dark brown hue w/ large frothy slowly diminishing tan head. Moderate roasty and hoppy aromas. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are roasted malt, brown sugar, and light roast coffee. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, and creamy mouthfeel.

12 oz can from Evergreen Discount into my NBB globe. Deep, dark brown appearance with a lasting tan head that laces the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, earthy hops, chocolate, coffee, bread, caramel and brown sugar. Similar flavor, bitter and sweet, nice balance. Medium to full body with a soft, creamy feel and a lingering finish. A nicely done American brown ale.

Can shared with ash. Cheers! Pours clear brown, and smells brown too! Like a bag of brown malt. Sweet and nutty. Taste brings a touch of chocolate. Surprisingly old fashioned. Good.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2011 Tap at brewery. Orange/brown colored body with a nice sized brown body. Nutty and well done brown malty aroma. Nutty flavor and brown malts create a full body. Well done.

Quite a good little brown. Nutty, malty, roasted, toasted bread dough and a surprising chocolqtey flavor. I really liked it but couldn’t really have more than one of these.
