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.

Use the blowoff hose! Review by Michael
Rating
This was I think the fourth batch I've made from a NB kit. I'm happy with the flavor, color and texture, but I wanted to sound off and advise others that you definitely need to use the blowoff hose with this kit. I didn't need that on the prior NB kits I'd done, so I ignorned it here to my detriment. In less than a day even with the six gallon carboy the airlock was blasted out and I had wort working its way out the airlock. I quickly fixed up the blowoff hose and in the end no harm done (had the first bottled the other day and all's well), but a mess in the brewing room. Start off with a blowout hose and bucket and you'll be fine. (Posted on 1/20/14)
SO FAR GREAT Review by Timothy

My daughter bought me the deluxe starter kit. It came with this beer kit. My wife and I like to drink New Castle Brown. Guess thats why she got this beer kit. I have never brewed beer before. Since I like canning my deer and making pickles and salsa from my garden she thought I would probly like brewing my own beer.When cooking this on the stove the smell was great so I had to taste and the flavors where amazing.Today I bottled it all up and again had to taste it and the flavors really stand out in this brew. Going to let it condition for two weeks in the bottles. Again this brew tastes great and I will Be buying it again in the future. Now I'm tring my hand at some wine. What a great gift from my daughter. HOORAH my lovely Marine. Thanks (Posted on 1/20/14)
Solid Brown Ale, give it at least a month Review by Sean
Rating
This was my first kit and first attempt at brewing. Easy to follow instructions, simple enough to make, 2 weeks in primary, 2 weeks in secondary. After over a month in bottles its a really solid, sessionable brown ale after the bitterness gets mellowed out some. (Posted on 1/18/14)

Great for this newbie Review by Bryan
Rating
This was my first beer to brew. Hard for me to rate it as I'm so new, but the process was easy enough to follow and the beer turned out great. Two tips that helped me. First, blowout is necessary, even on a 6 gal carboy. Initial fermentation was very vigorous. Second, I did not put it in secondary per the instructions. Left in primary for four weeks, then conditioned in bottle for one week and tastes good! (Posted on 1/15/14)

One of the best beers I have made Review by Brian
Rating
Caribou Slobber is one of the best beers that I have made. It is a hearty beer with many complex flavors. I recommend using a secondary as the instructions say you should. It really helped in the clarity and complexity of the beer. I am looking forward to letting it sit a while longer bottle conditioning and aging. (Posted on 1/13/14)
Amazing Taste Review by Vishal
Rating
I finally got to try this beer after 1.5 months. I decided to keg this beer and it turned out amazing. I am huge fan of darker beers, and this beer is like a mix of new castle brown ale and guniness. If you like those two beers, you will love this. The flavor is just amazing and taste is great! I will def brew this beer again! (Posted on 1/13/14)
Great tool to teach extract brewing Review by Luke
Rating
The "grain" bill for this delectable brew has a bit of every thing. Found a great brew to spread my knowledge to a friend who is interested in brewing. You have 3 hop additions, crushed gain, and 2 forms of extract. It covers all the bases. This brew always turns out fantasic as well which helps to keep up the motivation. A would call this a "house" brown, but I can never keep enough on hand so it doesn't stay in the house for very long. Very popular at parties and when my boys get together. (Posted on 1/12/14)
Solid Beer, Over-carbonated. Review by Benjamin
Rating
Overall, for my first homebrew I was satisfied but my only complaint was that using all the priming sugar included in the kit WAY over carbonated my final product, no explosions, but definitely not where we want beer carb levels to be (almost chamagne levels). If I were to make this beer again I would probably only use 3/4s or less of the priming sugar. I am suprised no one else has had this issue, or maybe they did not use all the priming sugar. If anyone has any advice on how much they used or if they found their beer to be over carbed as well, let me know, I am curious. (Posted on 1/11/14)
