Good recipe
Just opened my first bottles of this beer. Very good beer. A lot of flavor but not over hopped. Added some corn sugar to up the ABV a little and it turned out great. will buy this again. look forward to a little aging on it.

Great Beer
Good malt flavor with the right amount of hops make this a wonderful beer. Kinda like a pale ale with extra malt. Just try it.

Very Smooth
I really like this Brown Ale. It's a basic grain bill but well put together.

being a fan of Brown Ales in general went into this one looking to elevate it, added 2 lbs oatmeal, 1 lb honey to the boil and vanilla to the secondary. Result was great...sweet malt/hint of honey, vanilla to the nose and the oatmeal adds a nice full taste. The combination of the grain/hop choice from MOREBEER are spot on for the style. Look for sweet malt up front and toffee and a slight nutty taste on the finish. definitely a re-brew
