12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.
A bit of a surprise here with the smokiness, one of the tastiest brown ales I have run into all year. A real treat.
LOOK: Clear brownish amber hue, decent lacing
SMELL: Toasted grain, very nutty, faint caramel, soft herbal hop, vague fruitiness, subtle smokiness
TASTE: Heavy toasted malt, smooth, medium bodied, nutty, faint brown sugar, modest hopping, light smoke, semi-dry finish

Pours wonderfully deep amber brown hue definitely has amber highlights coming through it's not deep brown it's Little Brown. Preserving bats in PA I'm down, the aroma has a nice smokey malt character with cereal malts/hints of brown sugar very nice malt profile the label reports pils, munich, rye, brown, and smoked malts...this where Full Pint shines a nice specialty grain bill with one single hop Tettnang. Imagine that the IPA with 100+ IBUs I had a rough time with but the Little Brown with 20 IBUs is fantastic. A style I typically struggle with brown ale, they made complex bright and full of life. Flavor has enough malt sweetness/smokey character to really make the malt bill shine, while the noble hop background just carries you through the malt sweetness wonderfully complex and balanced ale this is what I look forward to in a good brown ale. The only beer I would put above this from PA in the same style is Helltown Mischievous Brown Ale other than that this is the best brown ales I've had in a very long time. Very smooth on the palate natural carbonation not overdone in anyway. I'm a fan I will continue to drink Full Pint's beers this may be a staple while it's available.

Sweet I am the first guy to review this in a bottle! Found at D's six packs in Swissvale for about $2.50 bottle says 5.5% ABV will do a beer update after the review.
A - Pour is a deep chestnut brown which is nice for a lower ABV. Has an off white head that settles from 1/4 to just a mild lace ring.
S - Very nice smoke aspect, has some chocolate malts, sweeter brown malts and a touch of hops to boot.
T - A very balanced brown ale the smoke is there but hidden in the finish. You mostly get chocolate like brown malts, mild cocoa powder, and a bit of tropical hops in the finish. Tasty stuff.
M - Medium bodied and somewhat chewy. Great body for a brown.
Overall I am not sure if this will be a year round offering but I would totally get it again. Also only finding it in one shop on a 4 store beer run is kind of a drag considering this is a beer with a cause:

Full Pint : Little Brown
LOOK: Clear light brown with amber hues.
SMELL: Caramel, nuts, a touch of toasted malts.
TASTE: Fairly nutty, with roasted malt a bit of fruit. Low herbal hop bitterness. Caramel and a bit of roast.
FEEL: Medium bodied, well carbonated. Finish is more or less clean with a faint lingering malty sweetness.
OVERALL: A decent brown ale. Not sure if this was a one-off or rotating release. Not bad and session able.

Pours clear deep brown, eggshell film for a head.
Smells of brown sugar and woody malt.
Flavor is caramel, brown sugar, toasty bready malts, and a mild hop whisper.
Medium body, light carbonation on the roof of the mouth.
Nice tasty sessionable ale, I din't think it is very high in abv. Tastes pretty good.

I don't really try enough brown ales. Or should I say, I rarely try any at all, it seems.
This carries the brown ale character that should be here. That tang that seems to be present in a lot of brown ales is also here. But it doesn't really hijack the experience. Smooth feel. Easy drinker. Not too shabby a brown ale.

Little Brown Ale.
Medium-light brown with reddish tints. Hazy. Lacking much head. An average look.
Hints of earthy smoke, treacle, cherry pits, mild coffee, and dark rye bread. Nice.
Nicely roasted with exceptional bitterness. Notes of earthy hop, rugged grain, rye spice, fruity coffee, and a kiss of smoked malt. Finishes with a gentle sweetness and a light fruity swing. Warms up and jars more smokiness.
Medium body with a restrained carbonation. No stickiness. A gratifying drink.
Good ale from some of my favorite local boys. Recommended.

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: A one finger off white head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper brown color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.
Smell: Smoky, hazelnut, chocolate, coffee, spicy, earthy, and grassy.
Taste: Nice nutty and smokey characteristics with mild bitterness in the rear.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, nutty, light to medium bodied, and medium carbonation.
Overall: Really nice brown ale with slight smoky features.
