Notes/Commercial Description:
NOLA Brown Ale was one of our first two flagship ales. This brewery favorite is a light-bodied, full flavored English dark mild ale with notes of chocolate, coffee, caramel, and nuts. High malt flavor and low hops, this is a great session beer with a 4.0% ABV and smooth finish.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12 oz. can poured into a 16 oz. Founders snifter.

Appearance; Pours a deep brown with a nice fluffy khaki head that fades quickly. Splotchy lacing remains as I drink the beer.

Smell: Some coffee and roast, hints of chocolate, and also a surprising amount of hops and pine. A good deal of earthiness for a brown ale.

Taste: Chocolate malt, some roast, coffee and some pine come in. Notes of grass and a bit of nuttiness as well.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with solid carbonation and a nice creamy mouthfeel. Not too thin but very easy drinking.

Overall: A quite enjoyable session-brown ale from NOLA. A good beer to have around and something I will keep in my fridge for sure.
