COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

I had this at Flying Saucer in KC. Pours brown like tea with a thick tan head. Taste nutty, caramel, mild finish. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a slightly hazy brown copper with a small off white head that left no lacing around the pint glass. The aroma is roasted malts, nuttiness, brown bread crust. The flavor is similar to the aroma but the nuttiness is even more prevalent in the flavor. The mouthfeel is light to medium and the drinkability is high.

ALIBALI (2491) - Kiel, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2016
In der Nase sofort Karamelduft und nussiges Malzflair. Nett. Der Trunk säuerlich, ein kleines bisschen malzsüß 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 möchte. 350ml CAN from BEERGIUM. 2,70 Euro.

tricksta_p (5162) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2016
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 (6065) - 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 finger’s 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.
