Brew a Beer With Cryer Malt – Winter Brown Ale

Brown Ales are seeing a bit of a resurgence on the Craft Beer Scene in America and this version is an Americanized take on the British original. It is strongly malty, with a good caramel base, some chocolate and toasty overtones, but without any smokiness. While the hops make it All American.
