Brown in color with a clear body, this brown ale displays a slight head of tan- colored foam that doesn’t last very long, but does leave some lacing. The beer has a nose of lightly roasted malt with some underlying caramel and earthy notes.
Moving to the taste, this beer delivers a taste that is about in- line for a lighter version of the style and what I expected based on the nose. There is some roasted malt, some chocolate, caramel, and woody flavors. The beer finishes mostly sweet and the body is a little on the thin side. There are hops present, but the malts dominate the flavor.
If there ever was an easy- drinking brown ale, this is it. Bristlecone Brown is smooth and quaffable, so it does have its use and purpose. But at the same time, it could prove too mild and lacking complexity to please everyone. It seems like a good dessert beer and a good choice for those who are not normally craft beer drinkers. It won’t excite most palates, but there is enough going on here to recommend it.
