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.

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

bhensonb (14881) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 21, 2006
Light malty aroma, perhaps a hint of chocolate. Its that malt aroma you found in chocolate malts! Deep reddish brown color with a monster persisting head. This may be unpasteurized. Thin mouthfeel. Starts with malt, goes to a very roasty toasty malt. Not a whole heck of a lot of hop here, but its tasty.

12oz bottle courtesy of jake65. Thanks Jake! Pours a deep brown, translucent body with a creamy, active, slightly beige head. Nose is almost absent, I suppose if you dig you get some lingering sweetness. Flavor is really where this one goes awry, sour flavor, no sweet malts like other browns. If you can get past the sourness theres a bit of nuttiness thats totally overwhelmed. Not even drinkable enough to be a session beer. Something wrong with this recipe.
