Beer #3

Beer #3
(from World Beer Cup)
Fernie Brewing Co.
First Trax Brown Ale

(English Brown Ale)
British Colombia, CA

Aroma: Fruity, caramel malt aroma
Appearance: Very clear brown color with a lasting small white head
Flavor: Malty caramel/chocolaty balanced with bitterness
Mouthfeel: Light to medium mouthfeel and carbonation
Overall Impression: Very drinkable and an absolute english ale. There are some chocolate tones with balanced bitterness, very smooth but on the sweet side. This ale may be too light in flavor and body and marketed towards the mainstream guy and not the craft beer geek.
