Brick Brewery US Brown (5.5%)

This is a very easy drinking beer and the style, when brewed in the UK always makes me smile.
You see I always think of a US Brown Ale as being an American take on the very British Best Bitter with the flavour profile shifting a little towards candy canes and peanuts due to the American malts and hops, and so if this is the case, here we have an English take on an American version of an English classic.
You see?
That kind of thing makes me happy.
More importantly, this is a very good take on the style, with a creamy and nutty body, lots of brown bread and honey, roasted nuts and toffee, some vanilla and a hint of chocolate along with a red leaf litter crunch tinged with sharp and zingy lemon zest from the hops.
I could happily spend an evening drinking nothing but this.
