St. Arnold Brown Ale offers a sweet, chocolate candy aroma and a copper hue. Carbonation in this beer is a little less than average and it loses its head of foam rather quickly. It is a little transparent around the edges, which is indicative of a beer that is a little lighter bodied.
This beer tends toward the sweeter end of the spectrum with a flavor that features the taste of chocolate, a dab of roasted malt, a hint of grapes, caramel, nuts, and some butter. The ale finishes with only a small amount of bitterness, but this bitter sensation lingers on the back of the tongue well after drinking, until finally giving way to a slightly chocolate aftertaste.
St. Arnold Brown Ale is brewed using five different malts and three different varieties of Pacific Northwest hops. It is a good tasting brown ale with a good deal of complexity. But a few small problems prevent this beer from being better. It is a little lighter than I prefer and Im not too crazy about the traces of diacetyl flavor. Take these two small flaws away and you would have a world class product. Still, St. Arnold Brown is a beer worth trying. It offers a nice assortment of flavors and the chocolate malt flavor is enjoyable.

Had this on tap at the brewery. Had a decent light brown color with a short head. Not too bad for a spring beer. Decent flavor with decent body. Not too much flavor. Goes down easy and was very nice to drink. But nothing too spectacular as I was expecting more.
