Corsendonk Abbey Brown Ale

It was a lovely spring day, so I decided to crack open the bottle of Corsendonk Abbey Brown Ale I had in my refrigerator. The pour was very frothy, almost marshmallow-like. It has a beautiful dark amber/brown color to it. The taste is very smooth, as you would expect after seeing the head on the beer. There is a slight hint of bananas in the beer, which rounds out the flavor nicely. The alcohol runs at 7.5% ABV, so a 750mL bottle will do a nice job of relaxing you on a warm spring day. I first tried this beer on draught at a bar, but I think I like drinking it from the bottle better. Usually I feel the opposite way, but this beer does well aged in the bottle.
