312. Sixpoint Brownstone

Grabbed a single of the new beer from Sixpoint at Bier Cellar last week and now wish I had grabbed a 4-pack. Every beer I have tried from Sixpoint has been excellent and they have become my go to golf beer and my golfing partners all agree they are making some great beer.

Brownstone is their brown ale which is slightly hoppier than most brown ales which is a plus in my book. Appearance is more of a dark red than brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is fairly typical of a brown ale with some sweet malt but there is also more than a hint of hops. Taste has everything that a brown should have; caramel malts and maybe some nut and coffee tones.

After all these flavors the hops make an appearance and the beer finished clean. An excellent beer and something you could enjoy in any season.

Brewers Description: …and coming out of the brownstone house to the gray sidewalk, the watered street, one side of the buildings rises with the sun like a glistening field of wheat.

Brownstone is our bedrock; the first fortress of Sixpoint. This mahogany-hued brew has elements of roasted barley and a hop-forward profile.
