|English Brown Ale|
Medium to full-bodied, strong-flavoured, sweet, malty ales. This old style dates all the way back to the 12th century. It remained a popular (if not the dominant) style until the early 19th century when the revolution in pale ales began. Traditionally, Brown Ale was the product of smoked malt which provided a rich flavour. The Brown Ale style that we recognise today originated in Newcastle, England and is still smooth, sweet and malty but not quite as smoky as the originals. Colour ranges from red to dark brown.
