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.

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.

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.

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.

On tap at the brewery. Pours very, very dark brown, nearly black, so much so that it was almost mistaken for the Peat Smoked Stout by the bartender. Small off-white head that settles down quickly, a bit of creamy lace on the glass.

Toasted malt aroma with notes of coffee, cream, and caramel. The flavor follows suit; there’s a gentle, appealing sweetness, again of caramel, with prominent coffee and cream notes. Toasty and tasty, lots of bready malt; all elements are well balanced. Very mildly hopped with just the faintest bitterness in the finish, which is semi-dry, and has a slowly fading, coffee with milk and sugar flavor. Less chocolate than expected but the coffee more than makes up for it.

Medium body, moderate carbonation, very smooth and tremendously drinkable. Brown ales may not be the sexiest or most exciting style but they can be fantastic when well done and this one is just that. Exceptionally enjoyable.

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.
