It's brown, it's named after a large North American ungulate, and its name suggests oral incontinence. Ah, we market product with our minds, but we drink beer with our mouths! Which is why this American brown ale is your new favorite session beer. Dense layers of malt, caramel, baking chocolate, and a hint of light-roast coffee give way to reveal a hop character you'll be surprised to find if you're used to drinking English brown ale. The finish is complex but balanced, and the gravity is not so high as to keep you from having another.

Brew it. Review by Frank
Rating
Drinking my last bottle of this, and I have already decided on making more. Great day to day beer, great beer after a hard day's work, good warm or cold, complex enough to show off to friends. There is no way you can regret brewing this. (Posted on 3/21/15)
Not a fan Review by Ryan

I didn't care for this beer. The default Windsor yeast is too estery for my taste. Ever notice that all the beers on NB have awesome reviews? Makes it hard to choose. I won't buy this kit again. (Posted on 3/17/15)
First Brew via Starter Kit Review by Michael
Rating
This was my first brew via the larger starter kit. I had been talking about brewing beer for a year now, so I decided to try it. Followed the instructions very carefully, as it was my first endeavor. I did 2 weeks primary, 4 weeks secondary, and a full 2 weeks bottle conditioning stage. It really takes time to condition nicely and to mellow out. At first, the aftertaste is sharp and not so pleasant, but as time goes on, it settles nicely. It has a nice head when poured in a chilled glass and tastes great. I have gone on to do the Dead Ringer IPA which I just bottled, have the Kama Citra in primary now, and did a cider from apple juice. So I guess you can say it's an enjoyable hobby. Get the kit, I'm doing extract due to lack of time (full time student) for the full grain stuff. It still turned out great. (Posted on 3/10/15)
Great brown ale. Simple and effective. Review by Kyle
Rating
I usually dive into deep detail on my reviews but I'll keep this one short and sweet as many have already described it perfectly. This is a great beer. You will not be disappointed if you order this recipe. I think I'm on my second or third batch and it won't be my last. (Posted on 2/25/15)

Return brew! Review by Warren

I had brewed this a long time ago, and I just returned to it - it was my forth brew after returning to the craft. After knowing a few things now, I took a lot more care in the brewing, and let it sit in primary for 2 weeks, and secondary for 4. Bottled, and after 2 weeks, it was good, and after 4 it was great! Smooth, nice notes of coffee and brown sugar, and supremely drinkable. I'll be back! (Posted on 2/21/15)
Great beer! Review by KEITH

I picked this beer with my deluxe starter kit. Just drank my 1st beer yesterday and it was delish! Great session beer! (Posted on 2/20/15)
Excellent! Review by Clayton
Rating
This beer is awesome and surprisingly rich in flavor. Great mouth feel, great head, beautiful color, and wonderfully layered flavor. Fermented in primary for three and a half weeks then went straight into bottles. Impatient as I was, opened one up just five days later and it was amazing! (Posted on 2/14/15)
Great malty taste Review by Troy
Rating
Not really a brown ale drinker, but of the 25 or so beers I made in 2014, I would have to put this one at the top. I don't know what my problem was but I just could not stop drinking it. Then my neighbors heard me talking about it, and they drank it, and so on and so on... (Posted on 2/11/15)
Perfect first brew Review by Derek
Rating
Brewed this as my first brew. I could not be more happy with it. I did share it with some friends that normally will not drink anything but domestic. They took 6 home with them. I was very happy with the brew and can not wait to see how the next batch ends up. (Posted on 1/30/15)
