COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Harpoon Brown is brewed to accentuate the sweeter, rounder notes derived from six different malts, including a de-husked chocolate malt that adds a hint of chocolate. The blend of these malts produces a beer that is complex and delicious without being heavy. This drinkable beer is perfect as a session beer or paired with foods.

It tastes like a weaker version of their Munich Dark. Not much taste, kind of fizzy. Some typical nut brown taste, but really light bodied and watery. Would not be that great as a session beer as the label says.

I thought this was a good brown ale. It has a very nice mouthfeel. Smooth and sweet. Caramel flavor with heavy malts. Harpoon is looing better with every beer I try.

PilsnerPeter (3049) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 20, 2008
Bottle: Brown pour with an off white film for head. The aroma is sweet, with a bit of caramel and brown sugar. Pretty boring though. Light mouth feel, with a restrained malt character. Sweet with a cheap caramel malt flavor and a bit of a metallic hint. Kind of lacks character.

Definitely on the lighter, sweeter, more tea-like brown. Closer to Newcastle than say a Dogfish Indian Brown, but perhaps that’s not so surprisingly. Light caramel, brown sugar, sweet tea, malt. Okay.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - APR 3, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber with a small short lived white head that fades to a ring and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma of light caramel and a hint of roasted malt. Taste is the same as aroma with the roasted malt being a little more pronounced. Medium thin mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness. Good.

2.8
Collint (475) - Sylva, North Carolina, USA - MAR 24, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear amber with light head. Notes of sweet caramel and nuts. Great carbonation, very clean beer.

Serious session beer. Not complex at all, just crisp and enjoyable. Thin palate, a little watery on the end.

2.7
Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2008
Bottle courtesy of my father-in-law. Nice fresh hoppy, grassy nose with a bit of caramel. Medium brown clear with thin off-white head. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Dry nutty character from start to finish. Light caramel with a bit of acidity. Light dry bitter finish with som nuttiness. OK session but I’ve had better browns.

Bottle. Pours a nice brown with a white head. Has a sweet aroma. Taste is nice, but a bit sweet.

3.3

Smells of very sweet caramel malts. Taste is not as dark and caramely as the smell leads you to expect. A nice brown ale, but nothing special
