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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Chestnut brown color nice and deep but clear. Small head that disappears quickly.

S- Strong cocoa and roasted caramel. Delicious.

T- Cocoa, chocolate, roasted caramel. Lots of roasted malt backbone around. Smooth finish

M- Creamy, smooth. Paves the way to the gullet with a feather bed like feeling.

O- Very good example of a brown ale. Well suited for a late fall bon fire. One of my favorite Shorts brews.

Serving type: on-tap
