BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Against The Grain Brewery & Smokehouse
Kentucky, United States
atgbrewery.com

Style: English Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
The brown ale to end all brown ales. Enjoy it, because there is no longer any reason to drink another. You’ve reached the pinnacle. A healthy blend of traditional British malts give this popular style a semi-sweet, biscuity, slightly roasted flavor. Oats thicken the mouthfeel, and a handful of specialty malts add complex chocolate, toffee, and caramel notes. The hops are mostly traditional, earthy British hops, but we cocked it up a bit with some Cascade late in the boil just to show those snooty Brits that we don’t approve of that Constitutional Monarchy crap.

Not a horrible brown ale but the price point on it is ridiculous.

Can to snifter, memorial weekend picnic.

LOOK: dark walnut brown, small beige head, fades.
AROMA: barley, oats, wet sidewalk.
TASTE: mostly mild barley, touch of grape/wine.
FEEL: medium carbonation. Medium body.

Ok, but nothing special. I do love the reference from "The League".
