Flavor

Toasted bread leads the palate and gradually becomes bitter with herbal hops, coffee roast, and nut. That bitterness carries through the finish and is slightly mellowed by caramel and chocolate.

Mouthfeel

The feel is smooth with a body that’s just over medium with light carbonation.

Overall

The Upslope Brown Ale presents well, has a pleasant aroma, and feels just right. And that palate is just a little sweet, a little smoky, and a little bready. And all of those flavors come together so well. It’s no wonder the Upslope Brown Ale has won numerous awards. It’s just that good.
