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

For starters, I am not a fan of Brown Ales. But I have loved each Sixpoint brew I have tasted.

The pour was solid brown with a very nice light cream colored head. There really wasn't much of an aroma that I could detect. I poured more into another glass to check for aromas, but again pretty neutral.

The taste was very full and soft. Softer then most brown ale's that I have tasted.

The finish was good and neutral.

So, my summary is that this one is pleasant. I have nothing negative to say about this ale, and on the other hand, I have nothing very positive to say, except that it is good tasting beer. I am glad I tasted it, but it wouldnt be something I would have again.

However, keep in mind, I really do not like Brown Ales to start with, but I always enjoy tasting different beers. Not only for my personal reviews, but it helps when it comes to describing various beers to our customers.

The Brownstone from Sixpoint was a nice beer I tried at the local Tap House & Grill. The beer poured a clear brownish amber with 1/2 finger thick white head that left a nice lacing. The smell was faint but carried biscuit and malt. The taste was a smooth well balanced Brown that was easily sessionable. The mouthfeel was medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall this was a good brown and worth a try.

Poured into a pint glass. This one pours a light chestnut color with a finger of beige head. Nice retention with some sticky lace.

This one has a nutty aroma with hints of toffee in the background. Seems to have a bit of citrus in the background. The pallet has a nice toasty malt profile with some hints of toffee and nuts. A distinct hop character in the background.

The body is medium with good carbonation. Overall this one is pretty solid. Enjoyable as are most Sixpoint beers.

This beer pours a light, old copper like brown with a decent sized off white head. Aroma is not all that strong, and we had a hard time really getting anything at all out of it until it warmed. Eventually there were some soft caramel smells and a twinge of citrus. Flavor is actually decent, a nice amount of hops balance a thin malt backbone. Drinkable for a brown beer, something I would enjoy in the sumer especially.

Milk chocolate brown in color with a muddy appearance. Poured with a steady off white head that leaaves a ladder of sticky lacings on the glass. Roasted malt, toffee and spicy herbal hop aromas, a bit smokey. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. This didn't seem to fit any specific style guideline, but it was like a cross between an esb and brown ale. Roasted malt and toffee flavors up front with spicy herbal hops being added through the middle and to the end. Roasted malt flavors transition to coffee at the finish which is fairly dry. Certainly have never has anything quite like this before.
