Brewers Special is a robust brown ale full of malt character. The deep, bronze body awaits the discerning drinker below a substantial foamy, light tan head. As it’s name suggests, this is no ordinary Brown Ale. At 6.6% ABV this beer is a testament to the craft of the American Brewer. The noticeable strength is balanced by an impressive malt backbone from imported Maris Otter barley, the complex flavor profile comes from a combination of crystal, victory and roasted malts while the hopping rate for this ale (33 IBU’s) ensures that the malts don’t overpower but retain the upper hand while vying with the persistent alcohol to ensure a consistently pleasurable experience to the bottom of the glass. So beware, this Special Brown ale is deceptively easy drinking for its strength!
