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.

Appearance: lots of smoke; very dark brown. Hazy (should be filtered). 1" light tan head; fades to 1/8". Light brown rocky head.

Aroma: roasty malts; slightly tart, fruity esters. Toasty.

Taste: Sweet, clean arrival. Malty, roasted mid-palate. Very clean finish. As it warms, sweeter. Roasty, very nice. Very quaffable.

Mouthfeel: Solidly midweight. Mild carbonation.

Overall: Excellent. Very quaffable. Will be buying again (If I can get my hands on it here). Very easy drinking; among the best American brown's I've had.
