Pint was served on draft in the Houston Airport.

Om a hop head so this really isn't my style but it was pretty good. Would be aomething you could drink a few of no problem. Decent nose. Little nutty flavor and more bitterness than expected.

My daily drinker. Fresh, unpasteurized.
Good color, brown that lets some light through. Not overly thick or sticky mouthfeel.
Malty and bready, really makes me recall why they call beer liquid bread. Nice sweetness with a dryer than expected finish.

One of St. Arnolds year round brew. This brew happens to be their least sought out for.

A - pours a reddish brown. Small head that quickly decipates, no lacing.

S - malty! Some coffee and mild chocolate hints. Tiny bits of hops on the nose.

T - loads of malt. Chocolate is definitely appearant. Coffee blends in and isn't easy to detect. Slightly sweet, not too much.

M - smooth, watery. Lightly carbonated, quite refreshing. Palate cleansing.

Overall, an average representation of an English brown ale. Worth a try, I'd pick it up every now and then.

Saint Arnold Brown Ale has a thin, soapy, cream-colored head and a clear, bubbly, copper appearance. The faint aroma is of sweet brown bread, bread crust, and pecan shell. Taste is of sweet brown bread, with a slight, underlying bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Saint Arnold Brown Ale finishes semi-dry, mellow, and highly drinkable. Overall, this is really well done. I recommend getting it and trying it.
