American brown ales range from deep copper to brown in color. roasted malt caramel-like and chocolate-like characters should be of medium intensity in both flavor and aroma. american brown ales have evident low to medium hop flavor and aroma, medium to high hop bitterness, and a medium body. estery and fruity-ester characters should be subdued. diacetyl should not be perceived. chill haze is allowable at cold temperatures.
The number one reason is craft beer tastes better than the "beer water" that is mass produced and mass marketed by the big beer companies. Craft beer tastes better because craft brewers spend their time focusing the quality of their beer rather than focusing on their marketing campaigns and stock prices.
Oh yeah! Craft beers can pack a punch. Most craft beers range from 5-10% ABV, but some can reach 20%, 30%, and even 40% ABV.
