Previously from this brewery: Hoppy Bunny Ale and a Milk Stout
Just getting down to business. Today's beer is a Brown Ale from The Duck-Rabbit. This one pours a dark brown color and gives off a toasted malt aroma. When you take a sip, there's a good bit of bitterness throughout, much more so than most brown ales. On the other hand, just like most brown ales, there's ample toasted malt with some nuttiness and hints of chocolate and caramel thrown in for good measure. Definitely a good fall beer, something for when there's a bit of chill in the air and the smell of damp leaves in your nose.
It's important to know that I'm nostalgic. It's important to know that the saddest song ever is Seasons in the Sun by Terry Jacks. It's important to know that I used to listen to this song frequently as a child, which, along with my fondness for Owl at Home, a children's book about an owl who made tea using his own tears, may explain a lot about me. Or maybe not, who knows. Anyway, this one came on my iPod today, so here you go. Worth a look just for Terry's 70s afro alone, whether you're sad or not.
