Bison Brown Ale

Bison Brown Ale Wine Details

Description: This is a Northern English Brown Ale made with English Maris Otter Pale Ale & Caramel, German Munich, and Belgian Chocolate malts. It is hopped with American Simcoe and English Fuggles & East Kent Goldings. It features a dryer, ‘nuttier’ malt flavor than Southern Browns, with higher hopping and alcohol levels, though these are still in the low to medium range.

Varietal Definition
English Style Brown Ale:
The precise definition of English Brown Ale would depend on where you are in England. It is nowadays much more closely associated with Northern England, specifically Tadcaster and Newcastle, home to Newcastle Brown Ale. These medium-bodied reddish-brown beers are malt accented with a nutty character, a gentle fruitiness, and low bitterness. Alcohol is moderate, a maximum of 5%ABV. The much less prevalent Southern English style, not seen abroad, is much darker in color, sweeter on the palate, and made in a lighter style.
