The Instacart guide to brown ale

About brown ale

Brown ales range from a light amber to dark brown color, and they usually smell like citrus or nuts. Their flavor can contain notes of chocolate, toast, nuts, raisins, or caramel, and they tend to have a medium to high level of bitterness balanced by a strong sweet taste. Brewers aim to make brown ales with a similar amount of malt and hops, which gives them a rich taste and a medium body.

Brown ales were first brewed in England in the 17th century, but the drink lost popularity in the 1800s before brewers revived it in the early 1900s. As this drink came back into favor, different brewing styles emerged, leading to different flavor profiles. The focus of a brown ale has always been the malt, rather than the hops, however.
