Brown Ale

Brown ale is a close relative of pale ale. Aside from the obvious colour difference, brown ales are slightly maltier than the pale ales but are less aggressively hopped. The water used for brewing traditional brown ale is chalky, and this hardness in the water tends to accentuate the hop’s bitter qualities.

Brown ales are relatively low-gravity beers that yield low alcohol content after quick fermentations. Chocolate malt is used to impart the brown colour and chocolaty palate. Some brewers add small quantities of molasses or brown sugar to lend other flavour and aroma nuances. The nose may also hint of fruit and toffee like aromas.

The brown ale category includes a sub-style known as English mild. This working class favorite, though made with the same principle ingredients, is of even lower gravity, lower alcohol and lower carbonic content, making it the perfect session beer.
