This beer is an excellent session ale for those who like their beer a little on the malty side. A lighter body and balanced sweetness make this brown one to remember. Pisgah Brown is a rock solid brew.

emacgee (4676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Clean soft brown pour with ruby highlights and thin wispy tan head. Nose is lightly nutty/biscuity. Clean flavor with lightly toasted and earthy malt. More on the dry side than sweet side. Touch of bitterness on the finish.

3.2
TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Cask at Beer Study. Brownish, no haze, amber with a small ring of off white lace. Nose shows some roast and malt upfront; notes of coffee, hazelnut. Similar flavor with a much lighter body than expected.

3.1
NachlamSie (3485) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2012
Pint at City Billiards. Pours a cloudy amber/brown. The aroma is mild and malty with notes of earth, berries, apples and caramel. This is medium bodied. Inoffensive and drinkable, this has some leafy hops, fruity hints and a bittersweet, almost earthy finish. Hard to pinpoint as a brown ale, with it’s lack of "toasty" qualities.

3.2

Pours brown from tap with a finger of khaki head. Slight hint of malt on the nose. Bigger caramel malt on the tongue. Clean finisher.

Served on draft at Barley’s in Asheville, NC. Pours a clear deep brownish red. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of light roasted malts, raisin and chocolate. Taste is dark malts, raisin, subtle citrus, chocolate and subtle hop bitterness. Medium to full bodied with a creamy texture.

3.6
jrob21 (3690) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Sampled from a growler. This is full of your requisite nutty character and caramel malt flavors. Aromas of crystal sugar and a bit of toasted wheat grain. Caramel sweetness in the flavor. Very nice example of an underappreciated style.
