Draft poured into shaker pint


A: deep caramel color can almost see through it but not quite not much head


S: Sugary, sweet toffee a little nutty a little roast


M:  fairly thin pretty standard for a brown ale but this almost seems watery


O: while a solid beer and one you can sit and session it really isn't mind boggling either, you want something lighter but with a pleasant but forgettable taste grab one.

Appearance is a chocolate brown with about a finger of head that dissipated quickly. There is a malty and bready nose – exactly what I might expect in a standard brown ale. The flavor is hearty with a mild and slightly sour bitterness on the finish. The light roasted malt character is pleasant and makes for a solid, but not exceptional brown ale.

Pours a deep amber to brown color with a small tan head. In the aroma, a small roast and somewhat fruity. In the taste, a caramel like roast and notes of fruitiness. A smooth and medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small sticky sweet caramel in the aftertaste. A nice brown, nothing to jump over a fence about, but not bad either.

Helltown Mischievous Brown Ale

Pours a dark brown color, decent clarity, absolutely no head. Carbonation bubbles are noticeable. Smells of roasted, sweet malt. In the taste, there is a nice nutty maltyness. Well balanced, with a modest bitterness and little traces of hops. There are very pronounced roasted, caramel, brown sugar, nutty flavors. Pretty tasty. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated. This is a good brew.

Sturdy mahogany color with a head that gushed over the glass and left little trace behind.

Toasty and malty sweet nose with a spritely hop presence. Toffee, molasses, and scorched earth with the flair of floral British hops. Light notes of chocolate and herbs. Smells great.

Bolstered by a strong elixiry malt base, Mischievous carries sweetness past bitter roast and earthy hops with cocoa notes and brown sugar. Still has that English toffee nuance that works well with the rest of the beer pushing drier flavors of grain, toast, and herbal bitterness. Floral hops are boosted, more so, than typical of an English Brown Ale. Tasty.

Low carbonation, but a good bit of body to it. Soft and giving.

A very good beer for the style. Appreciating this very much on a languid Saturday afternoon, over lunch.
