Clear mahogany color. Aromas and flavors of dark chocolate, dark roasted nuts, smoked jerky, and rye toast with a supple, bright, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length chocolate cream wafer cookie, sassafras float, and spiced nuts and cherries finish. A fruity, easy-drinking amber ale.

English style brown ales are reddish-brown in color and range from 4.5-6% in alcohol. These brews are malt-accented with a nutty character, a gentle fruitiness and low bitterness. Today, this style is most closely associated with Northern England, specifically Samuel Smiths and Newcastle. It has also become very popular with US brewers. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Newcastle Brown Ale, Sam Smith’s Nut Brown Ale, Sweetwater Georgia Brown and Bell’s Best Brown.
