Our bedrock Brown Ale, and one of the first beers ever brewed by Sixpoint. A smooth, malty trip down a hop-lined Brooklyn street.

Tap at Armsby Abbey

Fizzy and creamy 1 finger head semi with creamy lacing fades slowly over hazy dark woody brown.

Nose is malty, today brown nutty malts, sweet caramelized brown sugar, molasses, toffee, creamy, some earthy and light herbal hops,

Taste is malty to start, toasty sweet brown malts, sweet caramelized brown sugar, molasses, little creamy, light herbal hops, light tobacco, light citrus floral hops, very interesting. Finishes a bit drier, lingering sticky malty flavor and some floral light herbal hops.

Mouth is med bodied good carb.

Drink is good, light little biter but a nice malty balance, sessionable, dry finish, little sticky though.

Served from a growler filled at Bierkraft here in Brooklyn into a US pint glass.

Pours a dark mahogany/reddish-brown with scant head. The smell is very bready and biscuity, with caramel and malt notes. The flavor is similar - slightly sweet with caramel flavor, with hints of fresh bread and a smooth bitter finish. The moouthfeel is fairly light, and drinkability is high.

This is an interesting brown ale, definitely something new, at least for me. The flavor is far less sweet than many brown ales (Dogfish Head or Avery), but also has a sort of bakery quality that I don't remember having before. It seemed a bit more "British" to me than most American Brown Ales. Good overall.

On tap at Matt Torrey's in Brooklyn.

A dark brown beer with a small creamy head that tapers down to a wisp on top. Nearly opaque. Nice sheets of creamy lace cling to the glass. A floral hop aroma with a backbone of toasty malt. Flavor puts the toasted malts in front but it's also nicely hopped and grassy as Sixpoint beers tend to be. Creamy mouthfeel with low to medium carbonation. Medium long finish with a solid blend of the hops and malt as it fades. Very well balanced between the two; definitely more hop forward that a traditional brown ale. Really enjoyed this. Another winner from Sixpoint!
