Review - Shipyard Brewing Company - Brewer's Choice 2006 Brown Special Ale

"Brewer's Choice Brown Ale is a full-bodied, dark brown ale made with 5 different malts and 3 varieties of hops. Pale Ale, Crystal, Chocolate, Roasted Barley and Wheat malts combine to give this beer a nice smoky taste up front and a smooth, full body, finishing with a crisp hop bite at the back. Hops used in this limited edition brew are English Challenger, Styrian Goldings, and East Kent Goldings at the finish. Available February - March." -- Shipyard Brewing Co.

This was the last review before Sean set off for Scotland for two weeks, and the 2 Beer Guys will be on a review hiatus until his return. This ale pours a deep red color with a fizzy head. Good lacing, fully diminishing head. Aroma's are of sweet smelling malts, along the lines of a cookie. Initial taste is sweet, finishing lightly bitter. Strong carbonation on the mouth with a watery initial finish that turns dry after a while.
