Von Braun Ale pours a dark brown with a thin tan colored head from a brown thirty two ounce growler. The aroma is nice, malty aromas dominate. The flavor is also quite nice, malt is definitely the star here and it is quite well done. There is a touch of chocolate and even a hint of roasted malt. Easy drinking and tasty.

I sampled four beers at Cocoa Beach Brewing and this was by far my favorite. They should bottle and distribute this one. Solid brown with a nice tan head that fades slowly and leaves great lace. A nice nut brown ale with English yeast. Smooth, with chocolate edges and roasted notes. Toffee and caramel in the middle with an earthy hop in the back and subtle nutty tones througout. Very smooth, medium bodied, and easy to drink delicious beer. Nicely balanced.

I f'ing love this beer. I traveled down for a wedding, met the owner, great guy. I had this on tap and bought several bottles to ad sneaked them in the wedding bar. Love the clash between english and german ingriedients. This is a great session ale with beer geek power. Perfect pair with many meat dishes.

I enjoyed this brew on tap at Cocoa Beach Brewing Company's tap room. It's a traditional American Brown Ale, but brewed with German Noble hops for an incredibly smooth drink.

Very dark brown in appearance with about a finger and half of foamy tan head that provided some nice lacing and good retention. Very smooth drink all the way through.

I sampled four brews at Cocoa Beach Brewing Company, and this one was my favorite.
