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.

MoritzF (10095) - 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

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.
