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.

Subdued aroma and flavor, but very clean and refreshing. Not too heavy, but like all Bellís beers, very satisfying.

Pours light brown. Nose of nuts, brown sugar, molasses and a hint of raisin. Thin taste of oak, malt, caramel and toast. Not very sweet or bitter; just an average brew.

RolkaNation (141) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 26, 2011
12oz bottle poured in pint glass. Color is an outstanding copper brown, head is thin and disappears quickly. Aroma is slightly roasty with nut and doughy undertones. Smells good but a little light. Taste is somewhat bitter and full of roasty, bready goodness. Texture and body is a little thin but finishes nicely. Solid beer for under $2 a bottle.

BelvidereIPA (140) - Belvidere, Illinois, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Bottle to a pint glass. Pours a rich brown, with minimal, white head that sticks around. Chocolate, caramel on the nose. Very smooth brown ale. Easy drinking, great beer to enjoy on a cold day.

Doesnít linger as long as Iíd like and it doesnít have a pervasive, tastebud-taxing taste like, for instance, Three Floydísí Robert the Bruce, which would be about the same price per six-pack ($7.99 plus tax). Tasty in general and a nice brew but not really worth the money.

joekfsu (138) - Boardman, Ohio, USA - JAN 28, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep amber with a 2 cm bubbly tan head that is slowly diminishing. Aroma of roasted malts and a hint of caramel. Initial flavor has malts with some caramel. Flavor closes with some nuttiness that is lasting. Some lacing, light carbonation, light on alcohol. Light to medium body. Drinkable and simple, good beer for non-craft beer drinkers.

Bottle To Glass. Faint aroma, Maybe a bit of chocolate as well in the aroma.. Semi Sweet flavor and has bit of a strong finish. Malty taste that is smooth in the mouth.

Bottle What a nice beer,from a great brewery Malty and hoppy without either taking over. Very slightly sweet. Nice cloudy, brown appearance in the glass. Yet another winner from Bellís.
