Share This Review

24th Street Brown Ale is an English-style Brown Ale brewed by J. Wakefield Brewing, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a nonic pint glass from a can.


The ale pours very dark—nearly black—with garnet highlights showing when held to the light. It’s topped by a thick cap of tan-colored rocky foam that shows excellent retention. Numerous patches of sticky lace cling to the sides of the glass as the head reduces.


The aroma is malty with a scent of toffee and dark fruit; backed by hints of floral hops, coffee, and chocolate.

The tasting begins with biscuit malt followed by sweet flavors of caramel and chocolate. Earthy notes of mild coffee roast and nut transition to a gentle bite of floral hops that lingers briefly.


Its feel is smooth with a medium body and moderate carbonation. Finishes with moderate dryness.


Its appearance is dark for the style but otherwise looks great in the glass. Its aroma and palate have a restrained roast character that doesn’t stray into Porter territory. Malty caramel reigns supreme. Its feel is in line with style expectations and supports the palate well. Its ABV is high for the style but is managed well. The 24th Street Brown Ale isn’t overly complicated. It’s just good, easy drinking.
