Beer Review #8: Samuel Adams Brown Ale

   The next beer I am reviewing is another brown ale. Samuel Adams Brown Ale( is brewed by the Boston Beer Company. Maybe the poster child of craft beer, Samuel Adams is now world renown for their beer. Brown Ales usually give you malty, caramel flavor, with a nutty finish. Onto my review!
Pour:Lighter brown pour with a small tan/off-white head.
Aroma: Smell of toasted nuts, malts, and caramel.
Taste: Flavor of nuts and caramel with a little bit of  in the end. A good brown ale! My only problem with this beer is that I have become a drinker of Rogue’s Hazelnut Brown Nectar, but this brown comes in second.
Overall: C

Eastern Iowa residents: I have seen this beer in all Hy-Vees, liquor stores, and sometimes in smaller grocery stores. You should have no problem tracking this one down.

    I used to hold Sam Adams in such high regard. Lately, I’m starting to think they’re are better beers out there. Summer Ale isn’t any good and the last 12-pack of Oktoberfest I had was disappointing. I have yet to try the Brown Ale, however. Maybe this will ignite my taste for Sam Adams yet again.
