COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An autumn brown ale with distinctive toasty flavors from an assortment of roasted malts and grains.

A bright hop finish from Cascade and Fuggles balance the toasted grain notes to create a new expression of autumn brown ales. Brewed with Toasted Buckwheat, Maris Otter, Victory, Brown and Chocolate malts. Balanced with a bright hop finish from Fuggles and Cascade.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a deep brown color with a finger’s worth of light off white foamy head that fell off at a good pace. Mild stringy lace. The aroma had some roasted nuts, light toast, cocoa powder, light earthiness. Some grassy hops. The flavor blended the sweet to the roast and followed into the aftertaste pretty nice. Quick malty and roasty finish. The feel was centered around a medium body with a fine sessionability about it. Gets somewhat creamy along my tongue. ABV might have been a bit high for the style but still gets it done just right - good job to the brewers. Overall, pretty well done brown ale worthy of having again.

On tap, Ginger Man Boston. Deep dark brown colour, white head. Nice one this, strong malty flavours, some toasty and slightly roasty with hints of toffee and a bitterness too. Brown malt. Large hop bitterness, spicy, not too much fruit, good balance with malts. Very nice.

16 oz. can thanks to Willrunforbeer for the share. Fresh canning date of: 8-26-16. Aroma shows roasted nuts, peanut shells, and deep grain. Appearance of a deep brown, with light white head lacing the glass.

Taste of roasted nuts, mild toast, cocoa, and some earthiness. Palate has a medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, and toasty. Gosh damn, for a brown ale this is really a standout. Very finely constructed.

On tap. Felt like this drank more like a stout than a brown ale. Semi creamy texture. Slightly sweet flavor with a fairly pronounced roasted quality. Decent beer, but would not but again.
