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!

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A- pours a clear dark amber-brown color with a two-finger creamy light-tan head that retains long after the pour, leaving some short lasting lace behind

S- sweet and malty nose with notes of toasted nuts, brown bread, and traces of chocolate and caramel

T- nutty and malty up front with a more pronounced chocolate note than in the nose. Flavors of dark bread lead to an earthy, malty finish

M- medium body with light carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel and a smooth creamy finish

O- one of the more flavorful brown ales that I’ve had in a while, sweet, malty & nutty as a brown ale should be

It is a very average brown ale. It tastes like beer but is nothing special.
