Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our take on the well-known American Brown Ale represents a bit of a twist as our brewers chose to focus on complex layers of caramel malt accented by small percentages of flaked oats and roasted barley in the malt bill balanced by a beginning of boil hop charge of Hallertau Blanc hops. Fermented with our house Scottish yeast strain, Tasting Room American Brown Ale presents dark, fruity esters and toffee/biscuity malt in the aroma followed by sweet, toasty grain notes leading to a slightly sweet, lingering finish.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Nice brown/mahogany hued body; relatively thin yet lasting head. Very little aroma; very, very faint malt, but little else. A bit of a stretch to say there is caramel in the taste, but it's just possibly there; metallic; extremely mild bitterness. Medium-light body; slick and watery.

This is a poorly done example of a brown ale, weak and watery throughout.

Good representation of the style. Not outstanding but enjoyable.
If you know someone who drinks michelob amber and you want to ease them into craft beer this is a good starting point

From the bottle, it pours a nice clear brown with a nice head that slowly diminishes to a thin layer. No lacing. Slight scent of roasted malts. Taste is pleasant, with caramel and roast malt.

Dark brown with thinner, light tan head. Malty, fruity (juicy fruit, almost) smell with light chocolate. Similar flavor with a bit of cinnamon. Really tasty.

American Brown Ale pours a darker brown, opaque color, with a long lasting, small head. Aroma is sweeter and maltier, with a hint of metal. Flavor is a little metallic, with a nice creamy malty backbone. Good body and feel. overall, a nice brown ale, good body and feel really helps this one.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle poured into Stella glass.

Reddish-brown mahogany color with a finger of khaki head. Light lace in a ring left around the glass.

Spicy caramunich coming on strong in the nose. Some autumn vibes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice, followed by hints of roast and chocolate. Slight noble hop character at the tail end.

Flavor starts out a bit empty, with a quick shot of seltzer then it wells up into roasty malts, cacao nibs, cinnamon, and some basic caramel malt.

Feel is somewhat thin, very carbonated, with an odd acidic bite. Drying finish much like coffee.

Overall, not a bad brown ale, but it doesn't particularly stand out. It's definitely drinkable/enjoyable, I'd say it's what you'd likely find on tap at a B-Dub's.

12oz bottle. Poured out a semi-opaque, brown color with a small, tan head of foam. Nice roasty notes with toffee, chocolate and coffee. Sweet caramel taste with a strong roast quality. Nice balance of bitter with the sweet.
