BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Santa Fe Brewing Company
New Mexico, United States | website

Style: English Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Brown Ale style originated in the pubs of England, where beer drinkers desired a beer that was both flavorful and complex, but at the same time mild enough to be a session beer. The Santa Fe Brewing Company's interpretation of this style uses a combination of high mash temperature, hard water, and low-alpha acid hops to produce a product that is both true to the style and distinctly Santa Fe. Brewing jargon aside, Santa Fe Nut Brown Ale is an easy-drinking beer, mild, smooth, and always a favorite.

Poured a clear, translucent brown with a moderate tan head and nice lasting lace.

Aroma contained sweet, dark malts and licorice.

Flavor was a little thin with a dry finish. Some hints of roasted and and crystal malts.

Body is just a bit lacking but a nice carbonation level.

Just an average brown ale, almost newcastle-like. No real hop presence.

Nothing to write home about. SF BrewCo comes across with a passable roster of micros that the local burgeois/bohemian set can call their own.

Pours passable brown amber with a medim-thick head. Body hints slightly at toasted malts and hop profile, while going down in smooth ignomyny.
