Our brown is an English mild and it features a low alcohol content and light hop usage. Being our least alcoholic beer and one of our least hopped beers, the Bear-Ass Brown is very true to style. It has a light amber hue accentuated by a lacy white head. One notices its clean, crisp malt profile that pleasantly lingers in your mouth and ever-so-slight hints of chocolate, biscuit, and caramel can be detected. High noon is high time to sit down and enjoy one of these tasty session beers. Whether you need a little nerve calmer before you drive over Red Mountain Pass, a little hydration before you hike a 14er, or just a beer before you get back on the train, this style will satisfy your needs without putting you over the edge.

This is a very mild easy drinking beer with a hint chocolate but it doesnt cover the malt. A very very balanced beer with carmel, chocolate and hops!

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Tap at the brewpub. Not much of a mild; more Brown. Nutty, toasty character, prickly body, a touch of aloe, sand. Easy drinking, a bit overcarbonated.

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 30, 2011
Draft @ Cortez beer festival and at the brewpub. Is dark brown, a rich hue. Stable head. Aroma is huge malt character, rich dark bread, molasses-tinged pumpernickel. Smells like a good dunkel! The flavors are totally different, though, are more English mild in character. Has a smooth and creamy character, what malts are these? They are great, sort of like Malta but better. Body is just right, light, drinkable and super yum. Very well done!

Draught at the brewpub. Amber-brown without much head. Rich nutty aroma with earthy dark sugars. A full-bodied brown ale, with lots of deep, rich sugars and an underlying earthiness. This is a good brown ale (not a mild).

(can 7/10/10). Clear brown color. Medium off white head. Moderate toast, malt, and light caramel aroma and flavor. Short duration. Light dry finish. Thin texture. Moderate carbonation. Fair lacing.

arminjewell (9687) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2011
Pours dark brownish red with off white head from bottle. Aroma has notes of nuts, slight chocolate, toffee, earth, caramel, some biscuit. Taste is sweet sugar, nuts, toffee, chocolate, touch of earthy grass with a sweet caramel finish. Easy to drink with enough flavor to back it up.

bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2011
(Draught) Pours a hazy amber-brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted grain, cocoa, some raisins, and caramel. Flavor of cocoa, biscuit, grass, caramel malt, and toasted grain.

cubs (10641) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2011
Bottle @ home. Amber/brown appearance with a smallish tan head. Toasty, brown malty, toffee nose. Well carbonated, nutty, a touch spicy, toffee, brown malty flavor that’s very easy drinking.

on tap 7/18/10. dark amber brown color with a soft off white head and nice drippy rings of foam. the aroma and flavor remind me a lot of a chocolate chip biscuit... mixed with some wood, florals, grain and a berry-like fruitiness. it is light, crisp and easily sessionable. 6/3/6/3/13/3.1

anders37 (26734) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2010
