Medium bright mahogany color. Bright, roasted aromas and flavors of smoked nuts, artisanal coffee, dark chocolate, and char-grilled corn with an even, bright, finely carbonated, dryish medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long finish with impressions of arugula, dried fruits, and pretzel bread finish. A rich and nicely balanced brown ale.

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.
