No head but slight lacing as it arrived to our table; deep brown with slightly reddish hues make this look like a maltster. One wiff reveals vineagar funk and slight malt- I'm not sure if this was contaminated or if the vineagar aromas were from the acidity of the malt. Taste is light roast malt with slight sun flower seed nuttiness and minimal hop bittering. I detect a marginal sweetness, maybe off dry. Drinks quite nice indeed and I ordered a second one.

a pretty normal/standard brown ale. it was ordered in pitcher form with our food. it wasn't remarkable, but wasn't objectionable. it's a good brown ale to drink idly while waiting for some food to get to your table. on a more expansive beer list, i'd probably pass in favor of something else, even if i was looking for a brown ale.

B-Town swings a wide berth around traditional brown ale designs by incorporating a strong roasted element that tilts it towards porter, or even stout territory. An unexpectedly strong roast barley flavor lends an almost charred edge to it. The flavor then corkscrews through a wooden complexity that extends beyond the mere nuttiness of a nut brown, especially in the finish.

B-Town's body is dark mahogany and shows an irregular foamy head trailing splayed lace. Overall, it is a complex ale that carries to the point of perhaps being misunderstood as a brown ale. But I like the direction it takes and have chosen therefore to not rate to style. And if you like blended beer drinks, ask the bartender for a B-92, a mix of B-Town and a house ale brewed exclusively with Columbus hops called 1492.
