COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A smooth, toasty brown ale, Best Brown Ale is a mainstay in our fall & winter lineup. With hints of caramel and cocoa, the malt body has the depth to stand up to cool weather, but does not come across as heavy. This balancing act is aided by the generous use of American hops.

poured brown with some red, average head and lacing. sweet malt aroma, slightly nutty taste. very pleasant and my idea of a session beer since i can enjoy a lot more than a lager.

Oak brown with a small cap of tan head. Wonderfully toasty sweet malt aroma. Like freshly crushed biscuit malt. I would love ot know how they get that aroma to stay so fresh. A bit of earthly hops fill out the aroma. Lots of great carmel bourbon notes. Soft and sweet. A really fantastic and unique brown. As a homebrewer, the beautiful fresh malt character of this beer is such an instinctively appealing conection to the aromatic first runnings from a mash. I wish I had bought a few more.

Pours brown with a little bit of red in there, with a quickly diminishing head. Nice sweet malt background with some coffee and chocolate. Not exactly my style of beer, but I liked this one.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 15, 2006
Reddish brown color... fast leaving off-white head. Aroma is like a spicy brown ale... some spicy caramel and roasty chocolate with some light hops to keep it real. Taste is like caramelly roasted cinnamon. Don’t get me wrong, its not too spicy though. Pretty good. Some earthiness that brings it close to a scotch (or scottish?) ale. Perhaps its the Belgian malts?

RyanTHC (38) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2006
Very nutty brown ale.. thin to medium head that disapates about 8oz down. one of the better nutbrowns i’ve had . the decanting is important with bells.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - MAR 10, 2006
12oz Bottle: pours brown with some reddish orange notes. Small wisp of an offwhite head. Light hairspray aroma with a touch of chocolate. Flavor is somewhat earthy with a moderate roastiness. Finishes dry. Too dry for me.

3.3
GTown (127) - New York, USA - MAR 8, 2006
On tap at the brewery. A solid brown ale, comparable with Brooklyn and Ithaca.

3.4
chicagobears (474) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2006
Reddish-brown. Roasted malt and smokey. Reminded me of some of the characteristics that the Kalamazoo stout has. Has hints of coffee and nuts. It finished on the dry side.
