Saturday Evening Post About Beer: Golden Road’s “Get up offa that brown”

Golden Road’s “get up offa that brown” was an interesting Brown Ale, but I can’t say as I liked it. For a Brown it was quite sharp, holding a long hop note at the end that I didn’t particularly enjoy.

While I assume a desire for “nut brown” in this ale, I was disappointed by the nut flavor, which seemed to carry with it a connotation of burning. It was like when you’re eating roasted sunflower seeds and get one that was too close to the roaster that completely destroys the sweet build up of flavor in your mouth. that was how the nuts came across in this Brown Ale.

Over all, not worth a second go. But feel free to disagree with me 🙂
