Chestnut colored body. Great clarity, no haze or sediment noticed. Soft one and a half finger sand colored head. The head recedes fairly slowly. Spotty but thick lacing left clinging to the glass.
Warm bready Brown Ale. The warmth of the malt is really the focal point. Soft brown sugar, hints of toffee and a touch of nuttiness peak out from beneath. A pleasant grassiness from the hops compliments the warmth from the malt very well.
The flavor takes its cues from the aroma. Brown bready malt provides the base. Soft caramel sweetness peaks out from beneath providing some levity. Earthy, grassy hops very complimentary to malt. There is just enough hop flavor to be noticed and provide balance but allows the malt to stay in the forefront.
Medium bodied Brown Ale. Carbonation is moderate, texture is soft and smooth. Medium finish, very appropriate for the beer.
Best Brown is very appropriately named, just an outstanding example of the style. Brown Ales are certainly not the most exciting style but I find them a very comforting, enjoyable style when done well. I am not certain why I do not drink this one more often.
