American Brown Ale
A traditional English-style brown ale, but with more body. Its deep brown color comes from a combination of Chocolate and Black malts. Tall, dark and smooth – the perfect cure for the domestic beer blahs.

Sent to me by Strykzone. Pours dark brown. Tan head. Nose of chocolate. Medium body. Flavor is fruit and chocolate. Finish is bitter. Nice beer.

JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Toasted and earthy malt aromas along with a herbal hops component. Caramel and toasted malt flavors. A touch acidic. A standard brown in my book. 10/11

Strykzone (7362) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Dark brown and opaque. A nice fluffy beige head leaves inconsistent lacing. A lighter aroma of cocoa and grain. A dry beer to start. Grain is prominent along with something like oats. Some kind of dark fruit with currants (?). Different flavors here. Earth and very gentle bitterness. Chocolate is noted but it is under the grain and earth. This is easy drinking and generally sweet. Flavors are not big and it drinks easily.

HighlanderOne (1330) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - JUL 9, 2016
Poured from bottle. Aroma of caramel, malt and a tiny bit of hops. Appearance is solid brown, lacing head. Tasting roasted malt, burnt caramel, hops, butterscotch, veggies. Slightly sour on back. Pretty easy drinking, Not too carbonated. Overall, a decent, inoffensive brew.

wombat23 (1421) - Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Shared 12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a minimal beige head. Aroma is mainly malty, with perhaps hints of dark fruits. Taste is sweet caramel malt and is also very nutty (maybe chestnuts) and bitter, to the point of being rather unpleasant. Disappointing.

darbeer75 (902) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Aroma: simply malty with no other notes; Appearance: chocolate brown with no head -- at all; Taste: strong chocolate and malt, but not in a good way; somewhat watery with an odd tasting finish; Palate: medium body with little carbonation; Overall: not very pleasant; would not buy again.

Caramel color with a small head. The aroma mild with caramel. The flavor is more caramel. A bit thin but a tasty brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A rather chocolate like aroma. The color is a quite dark opaque brown. The chocolate carries over to the taste as well, but with not much of an after taste. A decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - Good nut brown flavor, not heavy on the malt which is good. For a brown ale: smooth, light, slightly crisp with hints of toasted notes. Pretty good all things considered on this brown ale.
