COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the northern style of an English ale. This light brown ale has a nice caramel and toasted malt flavor, combined with a fresh hoppy aroma that is slightly fruity. This is nicely complimented by a subtle bitterness that rounds out the palate.

Bottle. My bottle reads "Sprecher Pub Brown Ale." Pours a medium brown with a small fizzy off white head. Aroma and flavor are fairly sweet, not very nutty, some caramel, some fruity esters. Light palate. Fairly tasty and easy drinking -- i.e., a pub ale.

alobar (3754) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2011
Pours a chestnut brown color with an aroma of nuts, hops, and a faint hint of fig. Some caramel, toasted malt and nuts in the flavor. Kind of bland and empty. One of the lesser quality beers from this brewer.

Deep amber/brown pour with off white head. Aroma is light chocolate a bit of toasted malt. Sweet caramel and light chocolate. A bit thin and fizzy, but drinkable.

Watery brown ale, probably would be an okay session but ultimately not worth your time.

12 oz. Dark brown with a lasting meringue of foam. Nose of graham crackers, marshmallow, ash and earthy, green herbs. Taste is sweet cherry, ground corn, and a barely balancing finish of earthy spice and toasted nut shell. Light-medium body is watery, and a little fizzy. Very interesting take on the style, but just a bit too fruity sweet even with a sour-acidic and nearly mouth-puckering finish.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Aroma and flavor is fruit/berries and mild nutty notes. Decent enough brown ale.

I drank it quick, so I didn’t get much of a chance to enjoy it, but it was good.

Suttree (6358) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 8, 2011
As "Sprecher Pub Brown Ale". Pours brown with an off white head. Aroma of...Brown ale. Flavor of...Brown ale. It’s the Brownest ale of ALL!

On tap @ Sprecher. Nice mid-brown dark appearance with a decent head and later lace. Aroma was of lightly sweet malt and light hops. Taste was also of malts with a slight burnt hue and a nice smooth lightly hopped finish. Good mouthfeel. Overall, a nice brown ale that I will likely re-visit sometime in the future.
