Sweetwater Hash Brown
Sweetwater Hash Brown is an India Style Brown Ale, 6.2% ABV. Oh, damn you Sweetwater. As much as I hate the your juvenile beer names and endless marijuana references, this is a really great pun.
The beer pours as expected: A semi-dark brown with some caramel highlights, nice tan head. The aroma is pretty nice, I’m getting some citrus and mildly roasted malts, some roasted nuts maybe. Again the taste is exactly what I expected. The Brown Ale elements hit first, tasting some toasted nutty malts and a little creamy caramel flavor. It gets a bit more IPA like on the back half of the taste with some pine and citrus, solid hop bitterness and tingle, more citrus in the aftertaste that mixes with some toasted brown bread.
I often like my Brown Ales hoppy and this one hits that mark almost perfectly.
