Buster’s Brown Ale, released on 11-11-11, is a growler full of unfiltered, nutty goodness. It’s a special release that they’re only selling temporarily in the brewery so if you’re from around here, I’d stop in.

Pours a very deep hazelnut with a beige and creamy head. The aroma is nutty, mixed with malts, caramel and mild citrus. Buster’s Brown is brewed with 6 malts (pale, light crystal, chocolate, wheat, caramalt and rye). This blend dominates the flavor profile; full of roasted malts and chocolate. A slightly bitter finish, this beer lingers with hop resin and citrus. Clean, crisp and extremely drinkable, a great local beer.
