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.

Upslope's Brown Ale has a slightly more assertive American hop bitterness to it, but otherwise this brew drinks very much like a traditional Brown. Toffee, roasted nuts, toasted brown sugar, and dark bread flavors. Smooth, roasty, and medium-bodied. It's everything that you'd want for the style.

Beese (4851) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2018
Cask at GBBF 2018, Kensington Olympia. Dark brown beer. Smells like those Hovis biscuits you got in the cracker selections. Very heavy on the grain, but the flavour has a good amount of dried fruit.
