Notes/Commercial Description:
Exactly what it says, “Brown beer.” This is beer fermented from wort extracted from the hearty pale ale malt, toasted specialties, chocolate and Munich selections resulting in a toasted brown color. Very light hop additions from the Cascade variety allows the sweet malty and caramel notes to shine through for duration of its time on your palette.

A - Pint glassed. Pours a clear, beer-bottle brown with firey amber highlights. The head is a nice froth of off-white cappuccino foam. A wee bit of lacing.

S - Hugely malty, not roasty. Sweet molasses/brown sugar and a nice light hopping. Classic brown with a little umph.

T - A lightly roasted malt comes through most in the beginning, but as opposed to finishing overly sweet, the delicate hopping manages to balance the robust malts. Many wonderful flavors, and nothing overdone.

M - Well done. Nice body and slightly crisp. Could stand a little bit less attenuation but then it'd kill the drinkability.

D - At 5.2% and the flavors involved, this is one amazing beer. I'm ecstatic about making it to bottles.

Notes: This beer has and will continue to convert the uneducated masses.
