Muy Bonita, an American Brown Ale by Funky Buddha Brewery

Share This Review

Muy Bonita is an American Brown Ale brewed by Funky Buddha Brewery, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a Teku glass from a bottle.


Pours a burnt umber with a thick cap of khaki-colored foam that reduces slowly. Heavy residue coats the sides of the glass.


Soothing aroma is sugary sweet with cinnamon and applesauce.


The palate follows the nose with flavors of apple, cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate, caramel, and a hint of booze. Bitterness is subdued with mild lemon, used nicely in a complementary manner.


Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with low carbonation and a medium body.


Muy Bonita is packed with plenty of flavors even if it is a bit too sweet. Not your typical brown ale but there’s still a lot to like.

About the American Brown Ale

The American Brown Ale is similar to the English Brown Ale but has greater alcohol strength and more hops. But it’s still a malty brew with flavors of chocolate, caramel, and nut. The darker malt is more robust than an Amber but doesn’t reach the level of a Porter.
