Strength comes in many forms. With our Banyan Brown Ale, the flavors develop slowly and wrap around your taste buds. Youll taste notes of chocolate and a certain nutty hoppiness that will inspire you to ask for a second pint. Banyan trees are known as survivors. By nestling in crevices in other trees, the small seed of the Banyan takes hold and starts to expand. Slowly, over time, the Banyan tree drops its limbs and wraps around the original trunk. We like to think of the Banyan Brown Ale in the same way take a sip, drop your troubles and start to relax. The Banyan Brown Ale is perfect for Florida winters. The mild body is enough to keep you warm, without making you reach for woolen mittens. With hints of caramel and cocoa, youll enjoy sipping the Banyan Brown Ale all year long.

hotstuff (5033) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Rated on 02-19-2013 at Hopjacks Pizza Kitchen & Taproom, Pensacola, FL. This draft beer pours a very small tan head with a long retention, transparent reddish brown body, no visible carbonation observed, and no lacing. The aroma is malt, chocolate and nutty. The flavor is semi-sweet, caramel malt, chocolate, and nutty. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. A malty tasting beer that I would drink again.

hopscotch (10944) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Draft... This beer rocks!... Clear brown pour with ruby flashes and a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head that never fully dissipates. The aroma is a melange of toasted malts, almonds, pistaschios and milk chocolate. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. The flavor is roasty and lightly sweet with chocolate, caramel and toasted tree nuts. Finishes crisp and mildy bittersweet. Wow! Im pleasantly surprised and sort of blown by this unheralded brown ale!

When it comes to ales I am not a big brown ale fan, but this one really surprised me. It has the right amount of malts and a great after taste that always has me getting it again when I visit
