This classic full-bodied brown ale delivers hints of honey and caramel that is balanced with a fresh hop aroma provided by the addition of cascade hops. This brew has a deep, nut-brown color with an amber highlight. A masterfully balanced brew that will be sure to appeal to those seeking a beer that is authentic to the style of the region.
Appearance: Brown in color, mahogany hued; nice bit of light tan head.
Smell: Fairly neutral/non-descript nose; a bit of nutty roastiness from the malt, some steely-sweet notes.
Taste: Sweet and malty, a bit of chocolate, very well restrained; nice roast on the malts that isn’t astringent at all. At the same time it has a nice sweetness that’s almost dessert-like.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, pleasantly sweet stickiness coating the mouth.
Overall: Very nice brown, a pleasure to drink. I think this will have an easier time breaking into the market than their Pale Ale (which is a touch nice these days)—though even good Brown Ales can be a tough sell in a market full of extreme beers.
