The Brown Ale is a traditional beer related to the first beers ever brewed commercially. Brewed with an interesting blend of malts, including pale two-row Harrington, Metcalfe, and Maris Otter malt, Caramel, Munich, and roasted Carafa malts, the Brown Ale shines with a deep mahogany luster. The malt flavor is complex and deep as well, with notes of biscuit, nut, and caramel. With moderate hop bitterness, a deep malt body, and a fruity ale fermentation character, the Samuel Adams Brown Ale satisfies the soul and doesnt overwhelm the tongue.

biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 27, 2006
Clear solid brown with little head. Spicy, earthy, sweet caramel aroma with a hint of salty sea water. Decent body. Sweet, simple caramel flavor with some grain astringency. Rather watery.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 21, 2006
Bottle. Pours a medium, clear, red-brown with thin beige head. The aroma is malty, with hints of bread, some distant hops, and some grass. The flavor is earthy, ashy malts up front and a reasonable amount of somewhat bitter, but not very flavorful, hops. The mouthfeel is very cola-like. The finish is quite dry, but after that there seem to be residual sugars all over my mouth. Strange. Very drinkable, but I wouldnt pay money for it again.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 20, 2006
Brown with a tan head. While a boring style of the most part, Sam Adams makes a very drinkable ale with nice nutty elements and a semi sweet finish.

VAYankee (353) - Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2006
Clear brown body with a light brown head. Malty sweet aroma, a little caramel and bread. Biscuity flavor, malty and just a little dry. Biscuit flavor lingers.

Bottle out of Brewmaster 6 pack. If you dont like brown ales then dont complain when it tastes like a model brown ale. Nice dry biscuity malt flavor. Id take this over the Boston Ale. and hope it makes it to a 6-pack by itself.

trafford (171) - Germantown, Tennessee, USA - JAN 10, 2006
Bought with sample pack including Black Lager and Hefeweizen. Had a busy day of tasting and this was one of the better beers. I thought it was a little light on the hop bitterness but had some deep malts. I would pick up this sampler with out the Hefeweizen

kraram (2) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - JAN 10, 2006 does not count
Nice dark color with a fruity/malt aroma. Very pleasant. The head is full and dense. Taste is at first full and like the description states, biscuity with a slight bitterness. The taste is fleeting. Carbonation is lighter than most beers. This is somewhat of a dry beer and will leave your tongue wanting more. I enjoyed this beer and it will go very well with pasta dishes.

BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Light khaki colored head on a dark amber body. Aroma is sweet and caramel like. Taste is biscuity, a bit astringent, and has some bready nuttyness to it. Mouthfeel is average with medium carbonation. Overall, this is OK, still dont know whether i like this replacing the boston ale or not in the mix pack.

Suttree (6297) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 8, 2006
This could be the poster child for whats wrong with Brown Ales in general. Clear brown, fizzy, cola-like head. Very faint woodsy, brady aroma. Very light bodied and insubstantial. Flavor is tree bark and Alka-Seltzer. Sourish finish. Drinkable, but not very good.
