Dry, Nutty, Poundable, More-ish

From the can: A leathery, ruddy brown with a short-lived off-white head. Soft, toasty malts in the nose with earth and dark cocoa. Light-bodied, low carbonation. Dry upfront, with a clean malt base that's toasty and nutty, with suggestions of dark grapes and a leafy bitterness. Dries out even more with some mild astringency and a husky, grainy finish. In a world seemingly dominated by the Americanization of beer styles, this English Brown is a delicious diversion that pulls at our beer roots with each sip.

STYLE: English Brown Ale | ABV: 4.9% | AVAILABILITY: Year-round

The beer pours a dark brown body with a thin white head that quickly fades. The beer has a delicious smell of nut and cocoa bitterness. The flavor has a delicious nutty chocolate flavor. A great attempt at an English style brown ale
