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.

Phenomenal Beer Review by Jake
Rating
This kit came with my Deluxe kit and it is a very good beer only 5 weeks after the brew date, even with a few beginner's hiccups. I let it sit in the primary for 1 week, then the secondary for 2 weeks, and bottle conditioned for 2 weeks and this is a very pleasing brew. From what others have said this beer clearly improves with age, but I am having a hard time not drinking it all right away. My fermentation temperatures were a bit high, around 71 degrees ambient temperatures, meaning my actual fermentation temperature was quite high, especially for this strain. Even so, a great kit.

Great beer - not so great instructions for beginners! Review by John

I'll definitely brew this one again...but I'll do it a bit differently. Beginners - pay attention to brewers note in the inventory. Steeping instructions for the grain a bit vague. Even with my mistakes I thought it turned out great. Can't wait to see what it will taste like when I brew it right! (Posted on 9/1/13)
Best Beer so far Review by Dan

This was my 4th or 5th beer I've brewed and it was by far my favorite. Turned out great and everyone else enjoyed it as well. I'm not into super hoppy beers like a lot of home brewers, so this really hit the spot. Great beer, easy to brew. (Posted on 8/31/13)
Great seasonal Review by matt

I love to brew this beer later in the summer to have it on hand for the fall enjoyment. If you particularly like brown ales, I'd recomend this one as a year round brew. It is the best home brewed brown I've tried.

The kit is easy to brew and, while it's better aged, it's also enjoyable as soon as 4 weeks from brew date. It's pretty hard to find fault with this kit. (Posted on 8/28/13)
Nice Review by J

Great beer. I've made it about four times. The first time, the cat bit a hole in my expanding Wyeast pouch (really, no joke), so I used Safale US-05 in a pinch. It was great and that's how I've made it every time since. (Posted on 8/23/13)

Enjoyed the first batch so much, I just brewed it again. Everyone who has tied it gives it a great review. (Posted on 8/22/13)
Excellent. Review by Christopher

This beer compares extremely favorably to Moose Drool (obviously). I actually had sampled my first bottle after conditioning for 3 weeks and later that evening had a Moose Drool in a craft brew pub for comparison. Without side by side double blind taste test, I'd say it was about dead on. Perfect if you like brown ales...I will brew again. Thanks! (Posted on 8/20/13)

Success! Review by Richard

This was the 8th brew that I've made. By far this is the best kit I've produced. It's also the first kit I've made that I don't see anything that needs added to it. I would recommend this to any new brewer, you'll impress your buddies! (Posted on 8/19/13)
Outstanding Review by Paul

This was my third brew. The first two came out so-so, but this one was a huge hit. My friends and family all loved it and were amazed that I could make something so complex and flavorful. All agreed that it was one of the best beers that they've ever had. I've made a few other brews since, and and slowly improving my skills, so I'm expecting a chorus of angels when I make and share another batch of this. (Posted on 8/7/13)
