Our version of the classic English-style Brown Ale has a blend of six different malts and a hop schedule that results in a low hop character. The unique malt character brings to mind the taste of a blend of various nuts. Coffee, toffee, caramel tend to come to mind in this excellent session Ale.

ALIBALI (1843) - Kiel, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2016
In der Nase sofort Karamelduft und nussiges Malzflair. Nett. Der Trunk suerlich, ein kleines bisschen malzs und bitter. Ebenfalls nett, aber auch nicht zwingend. was bei 4,7% und dem Style auch nicht zu erwarten war. Trotzdem eines der besseren Brown Ales, da sehr ausgewogen und klassisch britisch, was es ja auch sein mchte. 350ml CAN from BEERGIUM. 2,70 Euro.

Can from Beergium. Aroma is malt, caramel, toffee, nuts, with a touch of regurgitated chewing tobacco. Flavour is above moderate sweet and light bitter. Body is light to medium, bit thinnish. Not a fan of this one.

Bulk_Carrier (5934) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - DEC 4, 2016
This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a semi-dark rugged brown color with a thin fingers worth of white foamy head that dissipated pretty quick. Sly messy lacing. The aroma takes the sweet roasted nuttiness to blend with the caramel and toffee malts. Smooth light milk chocolate. Subtle roasty coffee bean. The flavor brings about the roasty qualities to glide into the smooth sweet malts. Nuttiness is there and leads into a gentle aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. Nicely carbonated. Smooth roasty notes hit my tongue nicely. Overall, this one was a very nice brown ale that I would have again.

chinchill (4833) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 3, 2016
12 oz undated can purchased cold just a few days ago. Dark reddish-brown body with a very good head and respectable lacing. The mouthfeel is good too, but the aroma and flavor not so much. The dank, earthy aroma is particularly disappointing while the flavor is partly redeemed by a decent finish.

Dacrza (942) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - OCT 20, 2016
DATE: October 20, 2016... OCCASION: SGO computed, time to mentally prepare for Friday... GLASSWARE: Kisatsky Tavern pint... pours a dark chestnut brown, almost opaque body... forced before light, some bubbles show through... a single-finger off-white head holds strong to a foamy ring... the aroma is nutty--almonds, pecans--though the mango and grapefruit offer a welcome dimension... the toasted bread malts suggest a moderate sweetness... the body is smooth, effervescent at the throat, and mild at the teeth... sessionable as the label professes... frothy too, suggesting freshness... medium-bodied, but not weighty... the flavor profile is dominated by hazelnut and pecan, toasted oats and bread, while the hops suggest citrus--light mango, orange, lemon--to build a reasonably balanced taste... nothing bad to say about this offering--my first from Nebraska, I believe... a competent, serviceable brown ale that I wouldnt mind having again...

Can:   Brown pour, moderate light beige head, fairly nice lacing.   Toasted malt nose, nutty, subtle chocolate.   Similar tongue, very smooth and clean.   Coming across as a solid example.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Nutty finish, a little bready, mild sweetness, some chocolate too.   Really nice example!

Beaver (1774) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 21, 2016
12 oz can. Pours light ruby brown with a medium fluffy light tan head that retains well and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is toasted chocolate malts with a little nuttiness.

The flavor is sweet toasted chocolate and caramel malts with some graininess and a bit of a metallic twang. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.

Overall, an OK brown with some off notes.
