Avery: Ellie’s Brown Ale – Boulder does it Again

Hailing from Boulder, Colorado, Avery has grown to become America’s most respected breweries. Indeed, I have yet to sample an Avery product that is anything less than top-notch. Ellie’s Brown Ale is certainly no exception. Mahogany is a spot on description of the color of Ellie's body. The off-white head was not quite as towering as I expected, but it proved to be impressively resilient. The aroma on this brown ale is relatively complex – with hints of nuts, fruits, malt, and chocolate. At the same time, the nose is somewhat reserved and not incredibly powerful. 

The quality of the taste makes up for whatever might be lacking in the aroma’s potency; With an ABV of 5.5 percent, Avery makes a wonderful product with Ellie's Brown Ale and I’d recommend it to any sweet tooth out there. Flavors like toffee, caramel, and an explosion of dark chocolate on the back end leads the way to mildly bitter taste, but what a wonderful contrast to the sweetness it is. members mention a variety of other backend tastes, but the most noteworthy are “woody” and “earthy” (McNealc31). In short, Avery Ellie's Brown Ale is a great tasting ale and a desert in itself.
