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.

Poured from a growler filled at DeCicco's in Brewster, N.Y. into a Newburgh Brewing nonic pint glass.

A: Pours a cola-like black color with garnet highlights and a thin, creamy head of light tan foam.

S: Roasted malts, a bit of coffee grounds, hazelnuts and some mild, grassy hops.

T: Mellow, mild and earthy roasted malts throw some nutty, bittersweetness onto the palate backed by a dose of milk chocolate.

M: Light-medium bodied mouthfeel with a semisweet and cloying feel, but very drinkable given the low ABV and warm, mild flavors.

O: A nice English session brown ale at 4.2% ABV, Newburgh Brown Ale is a welcome addition to a cold winter night. Not the most outstanding brew, but tasty enough and very drinkable enough to session for a night. I'd get a pint again, but maybe not invest in a whole growler.

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.
