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.

This good after one week?! Review by Ed
Rating
I know, I know - three weeks at 70 to properly carb. Well, I can never wait that long, so I always crack one a week or two after bottling day. I will be getting this kit again - a great fall/cold weather brown ale. Just a SLIGHT hop bitterness to balance with the roasted malt and chocolate flavors. LOVE this brew and those who sampled did too! Rehydrated the Windsor Ale yeast and did 1 week primary and 2 weeks secondary. GREAT WORK YET AGAIN N.B.! (Posted on 11/10/14)
Great Intro to Brewing Review by Highwayman
Rating
This ingredient kit came with my essential starter's kit and it was a great introduction to brewing. I know that I could have done some things better, but I did my best to follow directions and I was quite pleased with results.
Gave it 4 weeks in primary before bottling. Bottles tested at 1 and 2 weeks had some off flavors (I did not control fermentation temperature and probably pitched too warm), but others that I've had since, with longer in the bottle, have been considerably tastier—some bitterness from the hops, with notes of coffee and molasses.
Definitely plan to try this one again at some point in the future, now that I have a little more experience. (Posted on 11/10/14)
Give it time! Review by Dennis

Flavor was a little off a couple of weeks after bottling. I gave it two more weeks and the difference was staggering. I'll have another! (Posted on 11/7/14)
Good brew Review by Brew dog
Rating
This was my first brew and follower the instructions meticulously. I am very happy with the outcome. I couldn't wait longer than the 6 weeks required. Pounded all of it in 1 week with some help. Seemed closer to a Newcastle than Moose Drool. Could be because I didn't let it sit longer. Overall very pleased

Follow up review. Review by John

After the addition of a tablespoon and a half of cloves for some bite and spice, my brother in laws rather enjoyed it, being that they were surprised that it was made by myself and not sam adams, saranac. Turned out to be a great beer. (Posted on 10/27/14)
Good brown, but not my fave Review by guy
Rating
This is a good brown ale. Maybe I read too many reviews but my expectations were higher. I think it's good. It is very drinkable. It is getting better with time. Very average beer to me. Debated about giving it 3 stars. To me this is an average 3 1/2 star brown ale which I suppose is just fine. (Posted on 9/22/14)
Good Stuff Review by Shawn
Rating
This beer is really good beer. I used Wyeast Northwest Ale. 2 weeks primary, then 2 weeks secondary, then 3 weeks in the bottle before drinking. The only thing is it is sessionable just like the description says it is and I prefer more richly flavored beers as I typically have only one or two in a sitting. It's not bland by any means, but I like them bigger and stronger flavored. (Posted on 9/22/14)
Solid brown ale Review by Jay
Rating
This one has a ton of positive reviews... I thought I'd add one more.

I did a 4 gal boil. Topped to 4.75 in my primary (7gal carboy - no blow off needed). Primary 1 week - Secondary for 2. Force carbed @ 25psi for a couple days, then turned down to 8psi to serve.

At first, the flavor didn't seem right, but I patiently waited, as other have insisted you need to do with this one. It's been in keg for 4+ weeks, and has turned into a great brew. A little nutty, a little coffee, a little caramel. A very solid brown ale - Better than Moose Drool, IMHO. Even the wife likes it, and she normally prefers the Berry Wiess. (Posted on 9/22/14)
Stop reading and order this kit! Review by MmBeer

Is it possible that NB just has too many kits? If there wasn't so many I want to try I would make this every 4th or 5th batch. It's just a great all around beer. Much better IMO than what it's cloning. I've had some friends who are the typical "Oh no thanks, I don't like dark beers" people that I basically forced to try it and they were pleasantly surprised. This is something you could have on hand year round, but is maybe more suited for fall or winter months. Even as I move more towards making my own recipes, this is a kit I will make again and again.

Had a party to break in the new bar.Had this on tap and EVERYBODY liked it."give me another brown" was all I heard all night.This is a beer everyone has to try. So balanced and flavorful and rich. If it wasn`t for the fact I have about 20 others to try, I would order this again right now! Awsome job N.B. (Posted on 9/10/14)
