Brown beer, brown beer what do you see? a happy beer-lover looking at me! this english-style brown ale is brewed with a delicate balance of chocolate and honey malts for unmistakable color and flavor.
English brown ales range from copper to brown in color. they have medium body and range from dry to sweet maltiness with very little hop flavor or aroma. roast malt tones may sometimes contribute to the flavor and aroma profile. low to medium-low levels of fruity-ester flavors are appropriate. diacetyl should be very low, if evident. 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.
