Brown and Amber Ale

From the colour of a tasty chocolate syrup to a sparkling dark amber, brown and amber ales are as delicious as they look. The English versions of amber, mild and brown ales tend to present themselves with a delicious malty subtlety whereas the American styles are more balanced and even somewhat hoppy.

Amber and mild ales from the likes of Rogue, Brewdog, or Fordham are known for their drinkability and are fantastic partners for a wide range of food; they're essentially bigger session ales. On the other hand, brown ales run the gamut from nutty and malty to clean and moderately hoppy--Thornbridge and Brooklyn each have a delicious example of the style.

American Red and Amber Ale is basically any ale that isn’t dark. This style of beer is nicely balanced with a focus on malts - light fruitiness and toasted maltiness are common flavours in most American amber beers. They’re very easy drinking, so if you’re a fan of craft beer you’re sure to find one you like.

English Brown Ale is darker in colour and tends to be maltier and sweeter than its cousin the mild ale. Brown ales have a low hop aroma and low bitterness. The American version is quite simply limited to American ingredients, but tends to have a wider range of hop flavours, bitterness and alcohol.

The perfect session brew, Mild Ale is true to its name, with a low carbonation and low alcohol content, combined with mild hop flavours. A working man’s drink, Mild is still the quintessential English session beer.

Scottish Ales are a deep copper-brown colour, with rich malty flavours and a light hoppiness. The malt used to make Scottish Ales is traditionally dried over peat fires, imparting a unique smoky character.

Purchased 2 cases of Belgium beers wow what quality will buy more defo
Ordered a 3 month beer club for hubby for his bday. Received one package but yet to receive the second or third. Called 3 times this week for answers and not received a call back. Won't recommend or use these again. Shame really.
I'm very happy with the service I received at Beer Hawk. I was after a special release beer that had sold out very quickly. I sent Beer Hawk a tweet asking if there were any extra bottles available and Tor replied promptly that he would have a look in the warehouse. He found some bottles which were then delivered promptly, packaging was good.
