10A. Brown Ale, Mild
Description
Made in the vein of Black Cat Mild(Pickles is my black cat). Basically I wanted a nice session beer without resorting to American style light beers which I'm not crazy about.

Recipe Details
Tasting Notes Light body, but with hints of roasted and nutty flavors in the finish which seem to become more pronounced with age. This has become my everyday beer. Light but with character and easy on the beltline!!
