Full Pint : Little Brown

LOOK: Clear light brown with amber hues.

SMELL: Caramel, nuts, a touch of toasted malts.

TASTE: Fairly nutty, with roasted malt a bit of fruit. Low herbal hop bitterness. Caramel and a bit of roast.

FEEL: Medium bodied, well carbonated. Finish is more or less clean with a faint lingering malty sweetness.

OVERALL: A decent brown ale. Not sure if this was a one-off or rotating release. Not bad and session able.

From a trade with Marty.
12 oz bottle dated 9/31/16 at 42 degrees. Served in a hand washed and dried Jester King snifter at 54 – 57 degrees.
Aroma – chocolate and caramel, fades.
Head – large (Maximum 4.5 cm, aggressive pour), light tan, high density creamy with a few rocks, average retention diminishing to a four mm creamy ring and a rocky layer.
Lacing – none.
Body – deep reddish-brown in glass, nearly opaque, but no haze.
Flavor – semi-sweet with caramel. Chocolate from aroma does not show up in the taste. No hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate – medium, creamy, lively carbonation.

A passable brown ale but lacking in the hops department.

Appearance 3.75, Aroma 4, Flavor 3.5, Palate 4, Overall 3.5.

Little Brown Ale.

Medium-light brown with reddish tints. Hazy. Lacking much head. An average look.

Hints of earthy smoke, treacle, cherry pits, mild coffee, and dark rye bread. Nice.

Nicely roasted with exceptional bitterness. Notes of earthy hop, rugged grain, rye spice, fruity coffee, and a kiss of smoked malt. Finishes with a gentle sweetness and a light fruity swing. Warms up and jars more smokiness.

Medium body with a restrained carbonation. No stickiness. A gratifying drink.

Good ale from some of my favorite local boys. Recommended.

Poured into a mug, the appearance was a murky brown color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated at a slow pace. Sly roaming lace. The aroma had some sweet and roasty nuts up front then a light caramel/toffee malt base. Light floral, citrusy and earthy hops came in for a nice balance. The flavor was semi-sweet with a light bitterness and a decent roastiness. Aftertaste was nuts, leather a little bit of baker’s chocolate. Finish was the same. The palate was medium bodied with a good sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine. A touch drier than I expected along my tongue. Overall, pretty good brown ale that I could have again.

I don't really try enough brown ales. Or should I say, I rarely try any at all, it seems.

This carries the brown ale character that should be here. That tang that seems to be present in a lot of brown ales is also here. But it doesn't really hijack the experience. Smooth feel. Easy drinker. Not too shabby a brown ale.

This is a decent Brown Ale. The beer poured a nice brownish amber with thin head that is not lacing. The scent carries biscuit and malt. The taste is evenly balanced with bread presence. The mothfeel is medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall this is a nice brown and would recommend it.
