English Brown Ale |  5.80% ABV

Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
A smooth, toasty brown ale with hints of caramel and cocoa, the malt body has the depth to stand up to cool weather, but does not come across as heavy. This balancing act is aided by the generous use of American hops.

A: Pours a color similar to cola; a bubbly head came and died quickly. No lacing. Average at best.

S: Brown sugar, caramel, and a touch of burnt malt.

T: Good mix of caramel, brown sugar, and a mild hop bitterness adds some complexity.

M: High carbonation creates a thin a body, however, it isn't necessarily a problem in this beer.

O: Overall, an average beer. Much better on tap.
