American Brown Ale

Medium to high malty flavor (often with caramel, toasty and/or chocolate flavors), with medium to mediumhigh
bitterness. The medium to medium-dry finish provides an aftertaste having both malt and hops. Hop flavor can be
light to moderate, and may optionally have a citrusy character. Very low to moderate fruity esters. Moderately low to no diacetyl. Can be considered a bigger, maltier, hoppier interpretation of Northern English brown ale or a hoppier,
less malty Brown Porter, often including the citrus-accented hop presence that is characteristic of American hop varieties.

Commercial Examples:

Bell’s Best Brown, Smuttynose Old Brown Dog Ale, Big Sky Moose Drool Brown Ale, North Coast Acme Brown, Brooklyn Brown Ale, Lost Coast Downtown Brown, Left Hand Deep Cover Brown Ale
