Rich mahogany color. Aromas and flavors of coffee, dry leaves, smoked gouda, brownie batter, and buttercream with a satiny, crisp, effervescent, dry light-to-medium body and a smooth, relaxed finish that exhibits nuances of esacrole, toffee and black toast finish. A dry and chewy brown ale that will play well at the table and beyond.

American Style Brown Ale

American style brown ales are light brown to dark brown in color and range in alcohol from 4.5-6.5%. Compared to the English version of the style, these beers tend to be higher in alcohol and feature sweet, rich malt notes in addition to medium-to-high American hop flavors and aromas. The malt profile of these beers may be quite complex including flavors and aromas of caramel, toasted malt and chocolate, with a pronounced hop profile easily identifiable as American. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Lost Coast Downtown Brown, North Coast Acme Brown, Brooklyn Brown Ale and Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar.
