Well, I love the song, the band and that darn beaver. It made me want to make a beer in it’s honor. Generous amounts of brown malt and marris otter malt make you want to love this ale. We hop this ale with Simcoe, Amarillo and Northern Brewer to enhance the flavor and the aroma of Wynona for your enjoyment! So get down with the brown.
Ingredients: Marris Otter 2 Row, Brown Malt, Carastan, Crystal 80, Chocolate Malt, Columbus, Simcoe, Amarillo, Northern Brewer Hops. 16 degrees, 3.8 degrees plato.

Smooth, pleasant, and great to look at in a glass, but lacking enough character to get overly excited about it.

Standard brown color without head. Juicy flavors of chocolate, oak and nut. Flavors of rye reminiscent of bourbon come through. It is a nice intriguing big brown ale. Mild bite and carbonation.

on tap at the brewery. Almost black in color with a small creamy light brown head. Malty aroma of caramel and cereal. Medium bodied with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Moderately sweet with a roasty, smooth finish. One of the more flavorful brown ales that I’ve had.

12oz bottle. Pours a clean brown with a light tan head. Aromas of caramel and some light hops. Taste is semi dry and lightly bitter. Flavors of toffee, roofies, some cocaine. Meh.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours brown with a half finger of tan head. Aroma of caramel with hints of cocoa and a little citrus. Taste follows aroma, chocolate and hints of coffee. Surprisingly boozy, there is definitely some heat. Good brew, I’m digging it!

Transfer from BA review on 10-31-12- Served on cask in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a deep brown color with a tiny white film of a head. The film faded relatively quickly yielding to little lacing. Smell- The smell is largest of a chocolate and a roasted malt aroma. Mixed with this is a lighter sweet smell of caramel as well as some notes of a nutty nature. Taste – The taste begins with flavors of a roasted and nutty nature. The nutty and roasty flavor are a backbone of the beer which maintain their strength throughout the taste. With these flavors is a lighter caramel sweetness up front. More toward the middle of the taste chocolate flavors begin to come to the tongue. While this occurs the caramel gets stronger and a lighter herbal hop flavor come to the tongue. These flavors take the taste to the end where a light, but quite noticeable, alcohol flavor comes to the tongue. In the end they leave a very nice darker and warming flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather average in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather light (not surprising for a cask). The lower carbonation is quite nice for the flavors, although a bit more creaminess of body may have been better for the darker flavors of the brew. Overall – A rather enjoyable brew. One to try if the chance arises as it has a nice flavor profile and just the right amount of booziness to give it a nice warming feel but yet maintain great drinkability.

On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Semi-hazy mahogany/chestnut hue with a foamy tan head.
Aroma: The aroma comes off prominently roasty and cocoa initially, but it’s mellow, not overly pungent. There’s a hint of oxidation that isn’t necessarily unpleasant, slightly grapey. Lastly I pick up a very slight hint of orange but only after reading the description.
Taste: Nicely balanced between roast, chocolate and caramel with the grape oxidation flavors present with a hint of cardboard on the finish. It’s not unpleasant, but it would be much better without it.
Palate: A bit like juice with a hint of carbonation.
Overall: I’d really like to try this properly carbonated without the oxidation, I bet it’s pretty killer.
