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.

Wasn’t expecting too much on this one. It was what I thought. An average brown ale.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours brown with a off white head. Taste Carmel, chocolate, sweet. I thought this was so so. I would skip this down the road. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

deaconmike (470) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Poured from a bottle. Brownish red with a tan head. Aroma is brown sugar, caramel and sugar plums. Very sweet with some mellow hoppiness in the finish. Body is a little on the thin side with soft carbonation. Smooth drinking brown ale.

bwa5879 (959) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Deep amber to brown pour with half inch beige head. Roasty, bready malt aroma, brown sugar, campfire and dough, some chocolate. Light carbonation, frothy mouthfeel, nice effervescent finish, very refreshing. Malty taste, sweeter carmel and dough, overall graininess blends everything together but subtle, roasty campfire taste toward the finish, a bit rooty.
