Notes / Commercial Description:
The Duck-Rabbit Brown Ale is an American brown brewed with loads of hops from start to finish (it's hoppy and beautifully bitter). Amarillo boil hops provide a spicy citrusy bitterness. Saaz dry hops offer a refined flowery aroma. These hops are supported by seven varieties of malt. The Duck-Rabbit Brown Ale is a great choice for anyone who appreciates assertive hops and nutty toasted malt flavors – oh yeah!

This is a good beer fur for me the taste was too hoppy. I did like the wonderful color of brown mixed with a slight haze. The head was decent and the bitterness is just right. The nose is a bit too hoppy for me but I did get a nice brown sugar mixed with floral notes. The feel is just right. The bitterness is not fighting for attention and does not overpower.
There is a noticeable balance between the hops and malts. Overall good but not great.

This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy brown color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated to one big lump in the center. This lump just kinda settles down really slowly. A light speckled lacing graces the sides of the glass. The smell had a decent bitter harsh citrus to spicy hops over coating a fairly decent rich nutty maltiness. The taste copied the smell to balance between the bitterness and the spice to the nutty maltiness. There wasn’t any aftertaste but it did have an ample nutty dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed appropriate for the style and for me. A nice level of bitterness and combined nuttiness hit my tongue nicely. Overall, yeah, I dig this one as an American Brown Ale, definitely worthy for its style to have again.
