Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

From 07/08/13 notes. Had this on tap at Gingerman in NYC.

a - Pours a deep mahogany brown color with one inch of lightly tan head and light carbonation evident. Lots of lacing on the glass.

s - Smells of coffee, roasted malts, nuts, toasted malts, caramel malts, and light dark chocolate. Nose is a tiny but Guinness-like almost. Pretty nice.

t - Tastes of coffee, cream, roasted malts, light vanilla, light dark chocolate, caramel malts, toasted malts, and burnt malts. More coffee and cream here than the nose; a tiny step up for me.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Body is super smooth and creamy; awesome mouthfeel. Could definitely drink a few of these.

o - Overall 3 for 3 for me with Newburgh beers; another good example of the style and another good beer. Nose and taste has lots of coffee and roasted notes, and it is crazy easy to drink. I like their gose and stout a little bit better, but this is very good and I could see a lot of non-craft drinkers liking this one. Would definitely have it again.

Serving type: on-tap

This beer has a transparent copper color. The aroma is of roasted malt with a bit of hops.

The beer in general reminds me of a better version of Sam Smith's Brown. The flavor is nutty with roasted malts. It has a bigger body than the aforementioned beer with an easy finish.

I've been loving brown ales and I would love to session this. Good example to compete with Sam Smith's.

Serving type: on-tap
