Jack Russell Brewing Company Brown Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Jack Russell Brewing Company Brown Ale. As I said in a previous review my family takes an annual trip to Lake Tahoe and a few years ago I heard about Jack Russell Brewing Company in Camino, CA (which is on the way up to Lake Tahoe). I enjoy swinging by the Jack Russell Farm Brewery and Winery and the Larsen Apple Barn to pick up some beer, apples and pears.
From the Jack Russell Brewing Company website: “The oldest of beer styles, our brown ale is a light bodied ale with a toasted malt profile, hints of coffee and a low hop character.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a deep brown with a thin tan head and nice lacing.
Aroma: Primarily roasted malts, caramel and chocolate just like brown ale should smell.
Taste: Smooth with caramel, chocolate, roasted and toasted malts and a nutty flavor.
Overall: Light in body and refreshing, Jack Russell Brewing Company’s Brown Ale weighs in at 4.25% ABV and is one that is session worthy.
