Cigar City Brewing Evander Brown Ale

Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.

Tonight’s featured beer is Cigar City Brewing Evander Brown Ale.

Commercial Description:
“Brown Ale with Spices - Artist and renaissance man, Evander Preston, carves out a unique presence in a world of sameness. Evander’s friends at Cigar City Brewing have brewed an exotic concoction based on his eccentric personality and style. The brew was a blend of flavors from far away lands. We know you will enjoy drinking our beer as much as we enjoyed brewing it. Evander’s studio and workshop is located at Pass-A-Grille, Florida.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights, a thin tan head and nice lacing.
Aroma: Sweet malts, chocolate, ginger, orange peel, spices and roasted nuts.
Taste: Sweet and roasted malts, caramel, ginger, clove, cinnamon, roasted nuts, spices, coffee and chocolate.
Overall: Smooth, malty and spiced just right Cigar City Brewing Evander Brown Ale was exactly what I hoped it would be – a solid and delicious spiced brown ale.  At 5.5% ABV this 750 ml bottle was perfect drinking.  Yet another beer from Cigar City Brewing that I would desire to keep around with great regularity.
