Deep mahogany color with fruity, red malt flavor and that slightly punky smell characteristic of a number of RC beers. This beer shares similar properties to the Copper Ale including the deep mahogany color and a comparably fruity red malt flavor. The fragrance is also somewhat nutty though the beer is not very traditional and doesnÂ’t suggest chocolate. Easy drinking though.

I picked up a party pig full of BA Brown Ale at the brewery this afternoon. I poured a pitcher, and then poured the beer into a pint glass.

Pours a dark red/brown color and is clear. Two fingers of foamy off-white/tan head produces nice lacing on the sides of the glass. There are a few streams of bubbles rising in the glass.

The smell is fairly strong, slightly sweet and malty. There are also some fruity aromas.

The taste is earthy, a little nutty, with roasted grain flavors and sweet malts, and a medium bitter hop finish. The aftertaste is mild and pleasant.

Mouth feel is light, moderately carbonated, and fairly thin for a dark ale, yet the flavor is full-bodied. There is nothing heavy about this dark ale at all.

This is a very drinkable beer. The flavors are mild and very well balance. The ale is refreshing for a dark beer and not heavy or filling. I could drink glass after glass of BA Brown Ale, and not tire of it. This is a dark beer, which is very refreshing when cold, has fuller flavor when slightly warmed, and would be drinkable year round.
