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.

This was a very good brown ale. it has aroma of malts, a nice brown colour you could tell wasn’t filtered. Ther head was a nice tan colour and stayed till the end. The flavour was full of malts, not too sweet, but just enough to make this a good drinkable beer.

Cloudy orange/amber color with some significant yeast floaties and a well retaineed tan colored head. Aroma is enjoyable with notes of heavy cream and sweet malt and a bit of yeast. Flavor is not as sweet as I expected based on the aroma. Initial flavor is moderately sweet malt, but then a pretty strong dose of of hoppy, spicy bitterness kickis in. Very enjoyable brown ale.

ah, my reward to myself for completing my final homework assignment of the term at 230 am on a thursday. nice brown color with the below described sediment. medium to full bodied. smooth and sweet with a long tart/bitter and spicy finish. very well rounded beer.

Wow, this is a really good beer. Pours dark brown, thin head, and floaties. Smells like baking brownies. Tastes sweet, malty, chocolatey, bitter, and overall very yummy.

That’s a great beer! Pours a chocolate brown with a tan head,lots of floaties (as one would expect from this brewery). Aroma is like chocolate cake batter, which kicks ass. Flavor is tangy malts, sweet roasted nuts, a moment of hop spice, and a grasyy, bitter, dry finish that is EXCELLENT. Highly underrated, in my opinion!

on tap: brown, very light tan head, nutty aroma and some hops, flavor much the same, pretty good beer, yet just doesnt blow me away. A good session beer.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2006 (draft) Just a decent fairly generic brown ale. More sweet than most I suppose, and not malty-sweet but sugar-sweet. If that makes any sense.

Tried at the Boneyard in Cleveland. This was the first beer of the evening. Great brown color with a thick creamy head. Very smooth and drinkable palate. Great malty and rich flavor. Went very well with the hot wings at the Boneyard.

Pours brown. Nose is hops and toasted nuts. The taste is very smooth, rich, nutty, malty... odd and interesting at the same time.

Bottle. Pours a medium brown, with a slight reddish hue. Visible sediment in suspension. Tan head, nice a frothy, good lacing. Nutty, malty aroma. Hoppy flavor, again like every Bells’ (non stout) there’s a fruity aftertaste.
