pretty: dark auburn brown. a big bubbled head quickly relaxed to a thin parchment crown, permitting proboscal probing sans sudsing of the snout. this ale is deep roasted malt, smoky enough to be a rauch bier, tanin and peat. some bread aroma, but it's burned too, (should be called young housewife ale). flavor is nice, just a little sweet, but a big empty spot where the hops should be, leaving one with a vaguely watery finish. incidentally, i thought 'session' meant a good all night beer, robust enough to sustain interest-- i didn't realize it just means weenie low alcohol. when producing low alcohol is the brewer's objective, i lose interest and question his priorities. but hey, that's just me.

THis started off o.k. -very nutty/smoky malt flavor. The alc. content was fine - this was afterall labelled a 'session' beer and I had planned on just drinking this all night. However, by the third one, I was desperate for some hops and craked open a Stone IPA to get my tastebuds back in balance. This just really, really needed some more hops.

Damn, milds get no love around here. Russet brown colour; full nutty, malty aroma; good body, tastes like it smells (nice malt profile). Very drinkable, nicely done. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - FEB 12, 2002
A deep, clear brown color; Head was medium and lively; Mild nuts in the aroma. Very mild. Satisfying mouthfeel. Metalic aftertaste-copper. The alochol is indeed LOW. Gusler (2652) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 6, 2002
Pours a deep ruby red color, large light brown head, sheets of lace. Nose malty, some what sweet, maybe a bit fruity. Front begins sweet, very thin middle, slight hop presence at the thin finish. Mild carbonation, some caramel hints? Not a bad beer, but lacking any real character that would make it stand out.

This beer is a brown ale that was previously known as
Two Brothers Best Brown. A redesign of packaging included changing some of the beers' names at this small brewery that distributes its products
around the Chicagoland area. This is where I get a lot of my home brewing ingredients, as the brewery also has a brew shop. The Brown Fox is a
good low-strength (session) beer that is similar to Newcaste Brown Ale from the UK. The Brown Fox is probably a little lighter in alcohol and has a
touch more hop flavor especially when tasted fresh. baseballguy (246) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 16, 2002
Drinkable, but not at all exceptional. Watery and lacking in body...........
