I haven’t brewed a brown ale in a very long time. The wife asks politely multiple times for me to brew one, sometimes she wants a vanilla brown ale, and sometimes she just wants a regular brown ale. I haven’t brewed an English Brown out of Brewing Classic Styles yet. Here was my chance.
English brown ales are fantastic beers to enjoy. I am more a malty guy than a hop guy. Never do I discriminate against my beers, but I tend to lean towards malt complexities than the hoppy beers. This one is a fantastic an easy drinking beer. The clarity of this beer is pretty mind blowing.
This isn’t one of those crazy and wild beers, but it was an easy going brew day, which I tend to appreciate more and more since I have built my new system.
