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 Ale’s 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.

An average brown. Some nuttiness to the taste. Malty but with some metallic notes that appear after warming. Texture is watery. Color is on the reddish side for a brown. Good head and retention. Fair lacing. Average aromas strength but with nothing offputting. Low carbonation. Keep working at it Fresh Beer. It is nice to see you available in more locations.

timid but decent aroma of sweet malt and hint of hop. bit of fishbowl perhaps older bottle and some malt and mild caramel with silky body and sudsy head.

Dogbrick (13759) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Sample at Nona Tap Room. Pours a clear pale brown color with a medium thin light beige head that dissipates steadily to a wispy film. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and slight hops. Light-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, roasted nuts and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a short grainy malt aftertaste. Average overall.

strap (965) - Sindelfingen, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2013
Tastes brown, bready, malty. Decent beer, smooth and quaffable. Won't seek it out, but will drink again if its there ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

stevencon (525) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Tap at proof. Light brown color almost muddy amber. White head. Looks thin and mouth feel is light body. Some brown ale notes but also some burnt grain notes too. Not worth a second glass.

jbruner (5277) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 8, 2013
On tap at the Proof FL Tap Invitational. Pours a clear brown on tap with bubbly white head that leaves light lacing. Aroma is light toasted nuts and crisp almost lager notes. Taste is more along the brown lines you expect, toasted nuts and caramel, slightly sweet. Decent, but nothing special.

suprchunk (2994) - EffOff, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2013 Brown pour. Big off-white head. Lacing. Slight malt aroma. Flavor is a chocolate and malt. Sweet finish. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

theisti (4205) - Kansas, USA - APR 17, 2013
Shaker pint draft at Tap42 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The pour is a golden copper brown with a small light tan head. The aroma is sweet malt and a pleasant nuttiness. The taste is chestnut, grass floral hop, and an ever so light roast quality. The palate is light bodied, active carbonation, and a clean nut and grass finish. Simple, straight forward clean beer.

Adding this as a new beer since I could not find it elsewhere. A post to the Miami / Fort Lauderdale forum also yielded no guidance. I imagine this is a rebadge of another beer, though have no idea what it would be. No issues moving this rating if need be. Assuming Fresh Beer Inc since the Ye Olde Pub in Davie, Florida listed it as brewed in Fort Lauderdale on their menu.

Shaker pint pour at the Ye Olde Falcon Pub in Davie, Florida. Pour is a hazed copper brownish with a smallish light tan head. Aroma is nutty malt, along with a cherry sweetness and a touch of floral hops. Taste is nutty malty, less fruit sweetness than the nose, though it is present. Floral hops come out near the end, and carry the finish. Sweet nutty fruit sweetness comes out nicely as it warms. Nice full flavors. Palate is medium bodied, with soft low carbonation. Finish is the dry clean hop. Nice tasty, easy drinking beer.
