Brown Ale at its best. Brewed with two-row, crystal, Gambrinus honey, and chocolate malt, and hopped with Cascade to balance towards the sweeter side. Enjoy it with your meal. Brown ales originated in England and were the staple ale of 17th century English taverns. They were usually brewed on site, or by a local widow or housewife. The Tavern model as community social, political, economic and judicial center of activity was repeated in colonial America, a tradition AleWerks supports.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - FEB 22, 2013
THOUGHTS: One of the best standard brown ales I’ve ever had. Great balance and wonderful transition from sweet malt to citrus hops. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a medium brown with a small, tan head that hearly fully diminished rather quickly. The aroma contained mostly moderate to heavy mil chocolate and Hershey’s syrup; lighter caramel; light citrus hops; and toffee. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly acidic; while the finish was heavily sweet, lightly better and lightly acidic with an average duration. There was milk chocolate, citrus hops, toffee, caramel and roasted malt. The medium body was sort of oily and fairly fizzy with a light astringent finish.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Aroma- A very nice malt aroma with maybe an earthy undertone. Appearance- A dark brown ale with an off-white head. Taste-Has a strong malt flavor with a light bitterness at the end. Palate- Medium bodied with a well balanced mild carbonation. Overall- This is a really good beer. Doesn’t appear to have a wide distribution. if you can find it I would give it a try.

emacgee (4240) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Dark lean copper brown pour with one finger of tan head. Nose is odd, very rustic and grainy with some bready sweetness and caramel notes. Kind of watery and weird/grainy in the flavor. Very earthy and rustic bready/toasted grain malt profile. Very light bodied and lean.
