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.

JoeMcPhee (9408) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2015
Deep brown pour. The aroma is rich and chocolatey. A rich malt profile and a soft toasty sweetness. Has a moderate earthy bitterness leaving it a very well rounded and balanced product. Rich and malty. Really lovely brown ale.

ThreeCats (879) - ISRAEL - DEC 26, 2014
Somewhat hazy brown with a nice off-white head. Aroma of caramel, nuts, chocolate, and some dark fruit. Taste nutty and toasty, with woody notes (wood bark comes to mind) and some burnt caramel. I would call hopping excessive for style, but than I guess this is an American brown, not an English Brown, so I suppose not. Good autumn beer

Can. Dark cola with a nice tan head. Aroma is dark fruit and cocoa. Taste follows and adds some caramel. Very light and creamy mouthfeel. Good but could use a bit of roastiness or something to balance the sweetness.
