Hook and Ladder Brewing Backdraft Brown


4.5% abv

A perfectly good drinking brown, but lacking much of the unique characters that make up a brown. If that makes any sense. Fairly dark in color with a medium body and a nice syrupy mouthfeel. Flavors were fairly mild though, which was surprising given the meaty color. The nuttyness is there, but it is just very subdued. It also has a hint of sweetness and malt flavor that balances it well. I just wanted more of a flavor hit, probably because I don't get many browns.

So not your typical brown. Which can be good or bad, depending on if you like browns.


ps: thanks Rich for the note about the abv!
