12 oz single from Jax, Sandy Springs, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Dark, dark brown pour with a certain murkiness about it. Spotty head left on the surface of the brew, not much lace.
Sweet and malty nose which is surprisingly reminiscent of an English Brown Ale. However, very quickly this is cut through by the typical taste of the American version of the style. Very hoppy for a traditional Brown Ale, but very typical for the American version.
The hoppy, bitterness is tolerable, but toward the end of the bottle I was craving the original version of the style – nice beer, but I still prefer my English, sweet, malty Brown’s.
