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.

dnstone (3385) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 20, 2017
Pours a rich copper color with off white head. Malty aroma. Nutty malty flavor. Notes: on tap at the brewpub, June ’17

MoritzF (9851) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2017
(can, 35.5cl) Hazy, ruby brown colour with a beige medium-sized foamy head. Slightly dusty, dark malty and slightly nutty aroma with notes of caramel and red berries. Moderately sweet and delicately sour flavour, light to medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Slightly dark malt character with hints of caramel and present notes of red and dark berries, as well as shades of chocolate far in the background; moderately sweet and delicately sour-fruity finish. Not really convincing. 20.VI.17

Idiosynkrasie (7421) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 10, 2017
355ml can. Hazy, dark brown colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Nuttily dark malty and slightly fruity hoppy aroma, hints of hazelnut, some caramel and toffee, hints of red berries. Taste is slightly sweet dark malty, hints of hazelnut, caramel, fruity hoppy overtones with hints of orange, a minimally artifical fruity touch of cherry and red berries. So-so.

Tejas (1006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 27, 2017
Draught > Flying Saucer. Weak flavor and a crazy thin palate. Hardly any aroma too. This is not a good brown. Thankfully it is only $3 b/c it's Monday.

gschrade (1084) - Collinsville, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2017
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

Iznogud (3710) - CROATIA - FEB 20, 2017
Canned, 355 ml from Beergium, shared with Max and JFK10000. Pours brown with medium off-white head. Malty, some caramel, light chocolate, watery, bland. Light to medium bodied. Not impressed.

4.2
Brandon1989 (655) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - FEB 13, 2017
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.
