It has a clear dark brown color with a tan constant color head. The aroma has a malty to citrus notes. The taste has a sweet malty to nutty notes with a rye and hop bitter aftertaste.  There is a slight citrus note that comes across. It is a pretty drinkable beer.

Here is a description from their website (www.rightbrainbrewery.com):

In the end, I love this brewery.  I just wished this was in a smaller package.  I love their packaging design graphics.  I am not a fan of 16oz cans.  This brewery makes some really good beer and this beer is no different.  This beer has a nice balance.  I love how they added rye to this beer.  This beer is different than Dogfish Head India Brown Ale and there is not too many brown IPA’s on the market.  It is a pretty good beer. I love it. I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

Ending, I have been talking to the brewery about this line of beers.  They told me this is by far best selling of the four beers in this series.  I can see why it is.  It is not over the top on the peanut butter but I feel it is pretty thin and weak.  I just wish it was stronger but I can see people loving it the way it is.  I like it.  I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

In the end, it is about time that Right Brain Brewery did different version of their CEO Stout.  I was pretty happy to see their Boardroom CEO series come out and I jumped on it right away.  I love it.  It does not taste like an imperial stout, which is pretty scary.  It is about 9% ABV but drinks like 5% ABV.  I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

Closing, I was waiting for this craft brewery to do something like this to their CEO Stout.  I was pretty excited to see the line up.  I had to try the bourbon one first.  There is a nice balance on this beer.  The barrel did not over take the coffee.  They did a great job on this beer.  I like it. It is pretty complex tasting notes. I did not know how a coffee stout aged in whiskey barrels would have came out. I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

New Beer Blog Right Brain Brewery Flying Squirrel Brown Ale (2014)


image

In this fall beer blog, we are going to sample the fall seasonal, which is Flying Squirrel Brown Ale, from Right Brain Brewery.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Michigan craft brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know Right Brain Brewery.  Let us get into this beer.

It has a dark brown color with an off white to tan color head on this American brown ale.  The aroma has a roasted malty to nutty notes with a slight caramel notes.  The taste has a smooth to creamy malty and nutty notes.  The aftertaste has a nutty crisp finish.  It is a pretty drinkable beer.

Here is a description from the beer bottle:

One quiet summer night, a lone beer lover was relaxing on his front porch with his favorite brew, when he noticed something darting through the trees above his head.

When he stepped into the darkness to investigate, a mysterious shape swooped down from above, narrowly missing his head (and scaring the crap out of him).  He knew immediately what it was.  Hence the legend of the flying squirrel was born.

Expect mild chocolate and hops aromas, deep colored body, and subtle roasty notes with a satisfying hoppy finish.

Here is a description from their website (www.rightbrainbrewery.com):

FLYING SQUIRREL
Style: Brown Ale
ABV: 5.7%
A Traditional American Brown Ale with chocolate and roasty notes leading towards a clean and mild hop finish.

In the end, I am a huge fan of this craft brewery.  I have always looking for their next seasonal to hit the shelves.  I was happy to see their brown ale came back to the market.  I love the story on this brew that I found on the beer bottle.  They put together a nice package but I wish it was available in four pack 16oz cans or six-pack bottles.  I am not going to complain because it is back for another great fall season.  I love the color tones on this beer.  I love the aroma but I did not pick up any chocolate notes that is noted on the bottle.  I will have to pick up another bottle just to check it out again.  I love the creamy tasting profile.  I really enjoyed this beer.  I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

In closing, I will be perfectly honest with you.  I did not like this beer the first time I tried it.  I had to try this beer one more time just because I love this brewery and I am a huge fan of them.  I do not know if it was what I was eating or the beer I had before trying this beer.  The second time that I have had this beer is a positive thought towards this beer.  I really enjoyed this beer.  I love the refreshing taste profile that this beer provides to the craft beer drinker.  I love the hops used in this beer.  I will be looking for this beer again on my next beer run or at my neighborhood bar.  I highly recommend this beer if you are a light beer drinker or love your Saison Ales.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!
