Brown Ale

Extremely interesting. $3.99 Green’s, Ponce, Atlanta, GA, USA, 22 oz bomber. I like the label – simple and very informative, mentioning Ibsen, “spicy hoppiness of the new world” (which I take to mean American hoppiness in a Brown Ale) plus some other info.

First off this is most definitely NOT an “English” Brown Ale. It is clearly an American version of the style with a LOT of extra hops added to the original style. Emphasis on the hop profile rather than the malt, unlike the English style which is the exact opposite.

Very dark pour and a lot of cloudiness. Not especially attractive. Some head and a little lace. The arom ais suprisingly chocolatey, with a strong bakers, cocoa or bitter chocolate powder smell.

Tastes reflect the bitter chocolate theme. Finishes shows some extra bitterness and a little floral note.

Glad I tried this, pretty interesting.
