Notes/Commercial Description:
Our American Brown Ale starts with a classic British brown recipe crafted with caramel and chocolate malts for sweetness and color. Then we fortify it with the bold flavor and aroma of American hops.

Like many of the progressive beer styles seen today, American Brown Ales developed out of the culture of home brewing in the United States. Often home brewers would begin with the traditional British brown ale recipe but replace the milder English hops with the more aromatic American varieties.

Once again, my local, in-person trader, tone77 has come through with a CAN in furtherance of The CANQuest (TM)! He finds 'em for me, I find 'em for him - it is a mutual benefit society we have established.

From the CAN: "Bold Flavor Alcohol 5.0% by Volume".

The Crack! unleashed a fair amount of foam so I CANtinued with a gentle pour, trying to avoid massive foaming, I was moderately successful, still ending up with two solid fingers of dense, light-tan head with good retention. Color was more coppery than brown (SRM = > 17, < 22) wih NE-quality clarity. Nose had an interesting admixture of caramel malt sweetness underlain by a minty hoppiness. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium, a drawback to these sessionable beers, I have found. Taste was rather sweet, very much toffee and caramel, but the minty hops came through to help it avoid being a total malt bomb. Finish had a clean minty flavor, inducing an Ah! moment. Still, I just felt like it was lacking something in total. It was not a bad beer, but just not my style and not worth returning to.
