Beer style defined: Brown Ales


Brown – Brown ales are also simple ales, using brown malts, which give them a darker color. Brown ales are very basic in nature. The only real difference between a brown ale and a regular ale is that brown ales have more biscuit notes (like a yeasty bread) from the malts.
