Beer Review

How Now Brown Cow

Pours a chestnut brown with a sticky half finger light almond colored head atop.Caramel and bready aromas with a tinge of dark fruit.Not too sweet on the palate with some caramel and toast,some decent drying earthiness keeps the sweetness in check.Somewhat of a no brainer but the light hop profile makes it in my opinion better than an everyday brown ale.


Brewed by: Oddside Ale, Michigan, United States

Style | ABV:

American Brown Ale | 6.00% ABV

Josh: Thumbs Down

Brian: Thumbs Down
