In this beer blog, we are going to get into a brown ale from Real Ale from Texas. It is their Brewhouse Brown Ale. Real Ale was founded in 1996 by Phillp and Diane Conner in Blanco, Texas. They had a brewery in the basement of Antique Store in Downtown Blanco. The beer that is under review in this blog was one of the first beers made. Let us get into this brown ale.
It has a dark brown color without a head over time. The smell has a sweet and nutty notes. The taste has a carbonated malty notes with a nutty aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle and their website (www.realalebrewing.com):
This is one of the three beers that started it all. First brewed at Real Ale’s original brewhouse (in the basement of an old antique store in downtown Blanco), the Brewhouse Brown Ale epitomizes what Real Ale is all about – traditional beer making. The Brewhouse Brown Ale is dark brown in color and a well balanced beer with flavors of chocolate and toffee and an exceptionally smooth, dry finish.

Closing, this beer was part of my last beer of the month that came in the mail. This brewery has been on my list to try their beers. This beer has a nice balance and a nice well built design for a brown ale. It is good but I have had better. There is something a little weird in the aftertaste and part of the tasting profile. They made a great beer here. It is their take a classic beer style. I recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
