While no "Bellaire Brown" from Shorts (MI), the first "brown" I ever enjoyed, Sam Adams has itself another winner with its own Brown Ale.

This beer just screams brown ale from the moment I tasted it. It is a malty beer with deep caramel and nut flavor. Hops? "Noble Spalt from Bavaria" and "citrusy Goldings" from a single farmer in East Kent. And not too many either.

Its another lovely combination - I'd easily take a 12 pack of 6 Irish and 6 Brown but there is plenty more new to taste with the 4 remaining brews.

Score: 9 out of 10
