The Eleven Brown Ale is a smooth Dark ale with hints of caramel and roasted nuts that are a result of the careful formulation of the malts. A slight hop bitterness balances the sweetness of the malts and provides the complement that makes the Eleven... one better than the other Brown Ales out there. Why the Eleven name ? It all started with the test batches when we were first conceiving of our company 10 years ago. We brewed many batches trying to perfect what the Florida consumer was looking for. All the bottles were anonymously numbered so that we were the only ones who knew which beer was going to be our first. The bottles with the number 11 were the resounding favorite. A step up and away from the light lagers that dominated the South Florida market at the time. A light tasting dark beer that to this day will surprise even the most steadfast light beer drinker.
Previously called Fresh Beer The 11.

daknole (11035) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Bottle from Total Wine. THis is an ok beer, a tad underrated. Brown pour with a whitish head. A nutty aroma is follwed by a malty, nutty flavor. Some hops balance it out a bit. Not the best beer in the world, but certainly drinkable.

hopscotch (11018) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2007
Bottle... Clear, light copper ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Excellent retention. Cookie and biscuit nose with some toffee and light earthiness. The flavor is moderately bitter with some light cardboard oxidation. Light to medium-bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel. Lengthy, lightly bitter finish. Too bitter for the style. More malt please!
