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.

An excellent brown ale! Review by Shawn

I think this is my 4th brew from NB and I highly recommend it! I don't normally go for brown ales, but the reviews changed my mind on this one. I'm sure glad they did! I let it go 2 weeks in the primary, 4 weeks in the secondary and kegged it. It's actually getting better with age!

Be careful when you're boiling your wort and adding the hops - you'll want to drink it! (Posted on 2/27/14)

This was my first brew and I really enjoyed it. It was a small batch and was consumed very quickly. I will be getting this one again, now that I am making large batch.

Slobber gets two thumbs up Review by Jeff

Looks like I am reviewer number 300 on this kit. Today I popped open my first bottle. This stuff is amazing...even after one week in the bottle! From what I have read this one only gets better in time. I left in Primary for 3 weeks...racked to bottle bucket then bottled. OG was 1.056 and it finished at 1.020. This gave me a 4.73 ABV. I will be brewing this one again for sure...it will be in my rotation! (Posted on 2/24/14)
Good value Review by Brandon

Since my kegerator was empty I only let this one go ten days primary, 10 days secondary, 7 days carb and still darn good. This is a very sessionable beer that should appeal to non-beer snobs and craft beer drinkers alike. After I work my way through some more similar session brews I'll be running this one again. It's good on its own, but a blank enough palate to experiment to your own tastes. (Posted on 2/18/14)
Awesome Review by Mitch

Chose this to go with my deluxe starter kit even though I typically don't drink brown ales. Very easy to brew, even for a complete newbie. Week and a half in primary, racked to secondary and left it another two weeks. Two weeks after bottling it was perfectly carbonated and decent flavor-wise. It's about a month after bottling now and it really tastes great. Only brown ale I'll drink from now on. (Posted on 2/12/14)
Fantastic Complex Brown Ale Review by Charles
Rating
Wonderful brown ale with a nice complex hop character. I brewed the extract kit and it is excellent! No wateriness, not overly sweet and the hop additions work perfectly with the various malt flavors. I tried it green at 2-weeks while racking to the secondary, again at 4 weeks when bottling and once more at 5 weeks. Each time, the taste was better blended and the character more well rounded.

This one is a pounder! Review by Old Raspy
Rating
This kit was free (promotional offer) with the purchase of a new keg. Having recently moved to AG brewing, I probably wouldn't have opted for the extract kit, but it was great nonetheless. The best part about brew day was adding the steeping grains. Right away, I knew this brew was legit as soon as the smell of chocolate and coffee met my olfactory nerve! After a week in the keg, this brew is just starting to hit it's peek. With a low ABV, this makes for a great session beer. Can't wait to try the AG version. (Posted on 2/3/14)
