COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Snowshoe Grizzly Brown Ale is the darkest beer available at the brewery, with a distinct, roasted malt character, dark color and medium hop finish. It pours out a deep brown color with ruby highlights, the head Bunyanesque in size, semi-creamy in texture. The aroma is of lightly toasted grain, caramel, and black walnut sweetness. Grizzly Brown Ale is brewed with five different malts giving it a rich roasted flavor and a smooth finish.

Sweet roasted malt flavor, kinda syrupy. Goes great with vanilla ice cream. Not much of a head so I give it a 3 just because I think any dark beer looks good in a glass.

Clean and I want more organic feel, deeply roasty, good but a bit over-raosted, very deep in color.

Im a big fan of the American Brown Ale style, so I look forward to new ones. The palate fits to a t; nice and light, edging to medium-bodied. The aroma is slightly nutty, slightly dark malt, and fair in quality, although rapidly diminishes as the brew warms, which is unusual. When the beer first hits the mouth, there is some nice roasty bitterness, and a slight nuttiness, but then through the middle and finish the beer just becomes, as I believe Ecrvich has noted for other brews, wet. I guess I mean muddy, or worse, no flavor at all to speak of. OK, actually, some hops sneak in. Of course, Im being picky, because if I was trapped on a desert island with this or macro swill, there wouldnt be any question.

Nut brown. Mild, nutty with hint of acidity. Not the most flavourful of ales.
