American Brown Ale Extract Recipe Kit

A truly American take on an English classic this beer delivers a dry, chocolate, caramel flavor with some toasted flavor thrown in.  Hoppier and higher in alcohol than it's English brother this beer makes you proud to be an American!  This beer is dark enough to drink in the winter, but light enough for fall, spring and maybe even the summer.  Brown ales are a style that almost any beer drinker will enjoy.  They have lots of flavor, but are very drinkable and usually will not turn off those with a lighter pallet.
