Slow-Fermented Brown Ale (available August 2nd 2010)

The newest offering from Switchback Brewing Company, Slow-Fermented Brown Ale is a beautiful chestnut brown colored beer. It is fermented at an unusually cool temperature which slows down the fermentation. These conditions stress the yeast, resulting in a slow methodical fermentation in which the resultant flavors are clean, somewhat like a lager, with the added characteristic of a creamy smooth mouthfeel. This brown ale has a rich roast caramel flavor, with a subtle sweetness in the finish, delicately balanced with hop undertones.

Perfect match to my sausage-butternut squash-cabbage-maple mustard dinner at The Farmhouse in Burlington. Tastes like fall even though it says it is a summer release. If you like easy drinking brown ales, drink the heck out of this if you get the chance. (254 characters)

On tap poured into a pint glass.

Pours a dark hazy brown color with a small white head with light white lacing.

Taste is sweet and malty with a light hoppiness that's really refreshing and nice but not too bitter. It's a really tasty beer that's well balanced. (262 characters)
