About the English Brown Ale

The English Brown Ale has been around for some time and even the modern bottled product has been around since the 20th century. Its color ranges from burgundy to brown. It should have a body that’s around medium or a little below and carbonation at moderate or a shade above. It has a light malt sweetness with flavors of nut, toast, biscuit, toffee or chocolate. Floral or earthy hops flavors are low to none and moderate fruity esters may be present. It has sessionable to moderate alcohol strength. The English Brown Ale has more malty flavor than the Bitter, is stronger than the Mild, and has less roast character than the Porter.
