Janet’s Brown Ale Data and Results

 Notes:

Descriptors: 

Not a bad beer, a little too bitter for a brown ale in my opinion. Finished pretty dry for a maltier beer. The water profile is very minerally and it definitely comes through in the beer. With every hoppy bottled beer, the aroma fades too much for me.
