COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sure the British introduced the Brown Ale way back in 17th century. It was light brown and sweet, and brewed exclusively with brown malt. Brewer Chad Pieper decided that this was a good foundation, but as Americans do, the style needed to be Americanized. It needed to be roasted, and malty, and it needed to be a little more bitter than the style that was an English second cousin to the mild ale.

nuplastikk (5911) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 13, 2015
12oz can. Deep burgundy-brown unfiltered body. Thick beige head. The aroma is a pinch dry and astringent. Pretty enjoyable offering. Smooth caramel/brown malt notes. Balanced with some non-descript bitterness. Kind of mundane, not so much malt depth, but OK.

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2015
The aroma is roasted barley, molasses, earthy hops, some coffee, a bit of cocoa, and whole-grain bread. Solid mouthfeel, with a medium-to-light body and lively carbonation. The taste is moderately bitter, with the roasted flavors being mellowed out by sweet toffee, for a dark and malty finish. More flavorful than a brown ale needs to be. Lovely.

Pours a clear chestnut brown with hints of red. Aroma of molasses and maybe some dark fruit and spice. Flavor of brown sugar and molasses with hints of pepper. This is one of the better tasting brown ales I have had in a while. This may improve as the beer sits a bit, but it is a little more carbonated in the mouth than I would like. Brown ales are not always my favorite, but this one is very good.

mbgrayson (740) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Pours a clear dark brown, with ample tan head. Aroma of malts and brown sugar. Taste is smooth, drinkable, and a little sweet, with complex notes throughout. A very nice brown ale, thumbs up!

phaleslu (9709) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2015
12 oz. can from the Liquor Store & Wine Loft in Jackson, attached to Albertsons. Consumed in Yellowstone National Park. Ms. phaleslu wanted this one. It pours a slightly cloudy cola brown with a small beige head. Notes of toasted malts, light coffee roast, tobacco, nuts, earth, and pumpernickel. Light-medium bodied, with a toasty mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Drinks nice from both the can and glass. Good brown ale.

ttoadee (1335) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Clear medium brown pour, tight off white head with some decent lace. Nose is coffee, dark malt. Slightly more bitter than sweet. Middle is smoky malt, coco, hint of leather. Finish shows some noticeable hop bitterness. Really nice American Brown.
