Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: JoeyBeerBelly on 09-04-2010

Our brown ale is in the American style, sometimes referred to as Texas brown. American browns are generally separated from their English counterparts by an increased hoppiness, and little or no diacetyl (buttery aroma/flavor).

Pours a chestnut brown color with a smallish tan head that dissipates into a sparse cap. The aroma has a light woody and nutty characteristic, some light lemon,, and an earthy yeast note. The taste is quite similar to the aroma; a nutty brown ale, some honey and brown sugar sweetness and a touch a tea like hop bitterness. I must say this tastes more like an english brown over an american brown. The hop profile is more in line with the english variety and the flavor is all malt and seems like it uses an english yeast strain. Its quite tasty but just doesn't seem to fit the american style. The beer has a moderate body with tingly carbonation, slightly sweet and tart, feels rich. A good brown just mislabeled by the brewer, I thinks. (739 characters)
