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.

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.
