Bottle. This is a decent brew for getting together with buddies on the weekend. Other than that give it a miss.

Pours an orangey dark brown with a frothy white head on top. Has a coppery aftertaste. A decent beer, not my favorite in the brown ale catagory but a decent offering from a smaller brewery.

Not my favorite brown ale. Coppery, mildly sweet, not the best aftertaste.

My bottle says Red Brick Brown Ale, but the brewer apparently calls it different names. Nice color and pour, but too much sweetness for a brown ale. Nothing outstanding to speak of but an average brown ale overall.

The brown ale style is what got me into craft beer and while its not one of my favorites anymore, I can still appreciate a good one whenever I get the chance. Unfortunately, Red Brick Brown Ale is not one I would offer up as an example of the style. It might work on a basic level as simply as transitional beer, but nothing more than that.

I received a 12oz bottle in a trade with Ding (thanks!). I poured it into a nonic pint glass.

Appearance: Deep chestnut colored body, opaque. Forms a huge, off white, foamy head that is slow to dissipate and leaves fluffy lacing around the glass.

Smell: Mild aroma of generic sweet maltiness. A hint of apple juice. Otherwise unremarkable.

Taste: Let me disclaim this review by stating that the bottle I drank was likely old and expired. The date stamped on the label is difficult to read, but appears to be at least five months old judging from the bottling date. Anyway, Im usually a fan of brown ales, whether they be American or British, but Red Brick Brown Ale doesnt seem to conform to either style. Im not sure how to classify it per se, more of just a generic dark ale with a hint of apple flavor to it. Nothing much in the way of nuts, caramel or toffee.

The only distinct flavor I can really pull out is a slight apple juice or even apple cider taste. This could be a sign of acetaldehyde or just what happens when this beer gets old. Its not particularly bad, in fact theres mild sweetness throughout, and I would describe this palate as being mild and drinker-friendly. But mostly its just a boring beer, even compared to Newcastle Brown Ale.

Drinkability: When I poured Red Brick Brown Ale it generated a gigantic head which lead me to believe it was going to be a spastic brew and a challenge to drink. It was actually the opposite: more on the tepid side with a clean, slightly refreshing body with minimal aftertaste. Im a little shocked to learn its 6% ABV as it does not seem to have the weight or robustness of something that big.
