With its standard appearance, mahogany with a sandy crown, this brown ale doesn’t dazzle from the glass, but it shines near your nose: A wonderfully nuttiness distinguishes the aroma, carrying brushes of peppery and flowery hops. Flavors continue in this direction, albeit with less punch than the aroma. Nutty whole-grain bread, sunflower seeds and even a touch of chocolate wash over the tongue, before lightly caramelized malts and subtle, citrus hops pop in. Mad Town shows off a smooth, luscious body and a fairly dry, clean finish. While the nutty flavors could be punched up a bit, this is still a very easy-to-enjoy brew.
