Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Jason on 07-14-2012

Our version of a London Style Brown Ale. In the south of England, they prefer their brown ale maltier and lower in alcohol. Here in Newburgh, we tend to agree. Verging on black, this beer pours with a light tan head and beautiful ruby highlights in the glass. The flavor is dominated by malty sweetness and gentle hints of chocolate and toffee. A nice and sessionable 4.2% alcohol content and medium to light body begs for an evening by the fire at your local pub.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Definitely a "darker" brown ale with an off white head and more than a finger of foam.

S - Chocolaty aroma with a more maltier presence

T - As described it is more maltier than hoppy which falls right into what you would expect. A semi-sweet taste with good balance.

M - This beer is medium bodied, very smooth and really drinkable.

O - Very well designed to provide the perfect amount of flavor for a brown sessionable beer. Don't let the color fool you, this beer goes down very well in the summer. A great beer year around.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #68 (Spetember 2012):

LOOK: Dark brown, ruby highlights, stellar head

SMELL: Toasted bread, mildly biscuity, herbal, woody, hop spice, yeast, nutty grain, dried grass

TASTE: Divine smoothness, medium bodied, hint of caramel, big bready character, deep subtle hoppiness, nutty grain, yeast, balanced bitterness,

Here we go, looks like someone is taking us back in time … England 1989, fully in love with the pub culture and drinking epic session ales. This is what this Brown ale tastes like, ale to be enjoyed in copious amounts and never think twice about ordering something different for the night.

STYLE: English Brown Ale
ABV: 4.2%

L: Dark Brown to Black. Pours with about two fingers of tan head which dissipates rather quickly lining the top the whole way down the glass. Some patchy lacing.

S: Nutty biscuity.

T: Nutty, biscuity, with a little chocolate.

F: Moderate to lightly carbonated. Medium bodied. Went down smooth.

O: English is how I like my browns. I'm a hop head, but not when it comes to Browns. When the malts are up front there are almost no beers better than this.

I had this at Boulevard Tavern in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
A. A deep reddish brown color with some tannish head and some lacing. Opaque.

S. has a sweet malt scent.

T. It has an alcohol taste despite low abv. It is nutty and malty. A bit sour underneath and carbonated.

O. It is flavorful. A bit soapy. Nice and refreshing but not astounding...not that there is anything wrong with that.
