Our interpretation of the American Brown Ale. It’s brewed with six American grains and American hops. Our brown ale has a strong malt backbone.

Tried from a sampler. Pours clear brown with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Aroma is average malt and light hops with average yeast with notes of toffee. Medium bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation, and a chalky finish. Not a bad brew.

Tasted as "Buffalo Brown" at the St. Louis Brewers Guild Heritage Fest 2013 in a sampler glass. It poured a brown color with off-white foam, long-lasting with LOTS of lace. True to style English brown ale, and a good one at that. Very aromatic, toasty, biscuity, roasted grains with subtle marmalade-y hops balance, nice tea-like tannins and mineral water hardness. A tart and refreshing dark ale. Light body, medium carbonation, full bready mouthfeel, dry finish. Good stuff, which makes it two out of two at this fest. Keep up the good brewing, guys!

Minimal aroma (standard for a brown). Not much head. Malty sweet. To be fair, this isn't really my style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The aroma was very weak, a slight hint of coffee and roasted malt and a bit of hops. The mouthfeel was very light, way to light to make this Brown Ale enjoyable. Carbonation level was below average. The taste of the ale was very much like the aroma, small amounts of roasted malt, coffee, and hops.

On tap at Buffalo Brewing on Jan 11th. Pours a deep brown with white head. Malty sweet, some nuttiness in the flavor. Too sweet.

Tap @ Buffalo St. Louis. Pours a dark brown appearance with a tan head. Lightly roasted malty, caramel, toffee aroma. A bit watery, rich burnt sugar / toffee, chocolate flavor.

A pleasant, easy-drinking American brown with plum-like and toasted malt flavors. Could use a bit more oomph, but this is a friendly beer.

Pour is a brown with a small tan head. Aroma is a slight roasted malt and not much more. Flavor is the same. Roasted malt and a little tobacco. Its thin and a fairly average brown ale.

tap at the brewpub. caramel, bread. doughy biscuity malts. okay not great.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2011 Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a brownish color with amber highlights and a medium thin and creamy beige head that dissipates to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Grainy malt and slight hops aroma. Light body with flavors of bready malt, grain and light hops. The finish is mildly roasted malt and nuts with an aftertaste that does not linger. Count this as the second animal’s drool that I have had with a beer named after it. Slightly above average overall.
