Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.40%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This smooth and nutty Brown ale came to us in a moment of deranged clarity. English flaked oats and caramel malts create a distinctive combination that makes it a great everyday drinker. Bready, caramelly notes with a touch of cocoa and a smooth finish.

Funky Buddha Brewery - Doc Brown Ale. 6.4% ABV. 16oz pint glass ordered at the brewery.

Look: Deep amber/plum colored body, arriving with a half finger of off white head that leaves sticky lacing as it faded.

Smell: Caramel, toasted oats, and black cherry with some nuttiness backing it.

Feel: Medium bodied and smooth, with some nice carbonation.

Taste: Sweet nutty caramel and oats, along with the black cherry. Finishes a bittersweet nutty black cherry.

Overall: First beer had at the brewery while on vacation. I think this is severely underrated, especially when compared to other beers of the style.

This is the base beer for a few of the Buddhas limited release brews. A very good version of a fairly mundane style.

Nice toasty smell, appearance is a fairly dark brown color and the taste balances roasted malt and sweetness very well. Overall a solid brown ale that is sure to please those that like the style.
