Ellies Brown Ale is one of the more English Brown Ales out there, IMO, even with the use of Bullions and Cascades. The clear, deep ruby body is topped by a thin, almost splotchy head of beige, lacing head. The aroma of sweet, chocolate and crystal malts mingle with the coolness of American hops and the Fuggles. Between the chocolate malts and the Fuggles, the medium body is very earthy, after the initial sweetness. Then an almost piney coolness almost mitigates the maltiness. The two opposing flavors linger momentarily in equilibrium, but the earthy maltiness wins out and the beer sours ever so slightly in the finish due to the imbalance and the resulting, left-over sugar. A solid offering, but by Avery standards, this ones a bit weak and uninteresting
