Showshoe Grizzly Brown Ale
One of the beers that came in my beer of the month club that I got for Christmas was the Showshoe Grizzly Brown Ale. The beer pours a dark amber color with a thin bubbly off-white head. The aroma consists of toasted malts, nuts, chocolate, and sawdust. The taste is big on toasted malts with a light chocolate flavor and vanilla accents. The after taste is dry and roasty. The alcohol content is 5.6% ABV. While the beer is not too intense, it is a solid brown ale that has a creamy mouth feel and a wonderful toasted flavor.
