Bottle. This is near perfect for the style to me. Super simple but exquisitely crafted, refreshing, comforting, and clean. It pours with great clarity, a deep brown and ruby, with a fleeting tight head and a little lace. The aroma is clean malt, lightly roasted nuts, a little earth, and a little fruitiness. The flavor has a bit more chocolate, very slight tang, and very well balanced moderate sweetness and bitterness. It ends a light bitter and dusty after a very soft and clean start.

This is about as close to an English-style Brown as you can get without making a trip across the pond. Dark brown color; it takes on a reddish glow in direct light. Malty nose. Cocoa and hazelnut flavors followed by mild earthy, tea-like hops. Rich feel and low bitterness. Does AleSmith make any style of beer that isn’t worth drinking? Guess not.

Brown amber robe without foam. Nose of coffee, smoke and a bit of hazelnut. Light body with thin sparkling bubbles. Finish is soft and a bit nutty. Quite balanced and enjoyable, maybe a bit too watery for me. Way more refined than the Rogue one, but the nut is also more discreet.

Flaska från Martin Ficks. Djup, mahogny- färgad kropp med smutsgrå skumkrona. Doft av knäck, kakor och rostad malt. Krämig och halvsöt munkänsla. Smak av kakor, brända mandlar, mild choklad och jordig humle.

Draft, chalice glass. Appears amber-brown with some lacing, and the nose is of creamy caramel malt. A very well-balanced brown ale. It’s light-medium bodied, and has smooth caramel and mild, earthy hop flavor. Executed on point. Suitable for many settings.

3.9
hauxe (746) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - APR 19, 2017
Pours chestnut brown with a tan head. Smell is tea, nuts, caramel, old wood. Taste is sweet, lots of tea, a bit nutty, mostly hazelnut, caramel. Medium body. Mild carbonation. I liked it.
