I was reading the BJCP guidelines for Brown Ales, and was wondering if any one knows of any good commercial examples that are readily available in the US. The guidelines lists examples that I do not get my area:
Mann's Brown Ale (bottled, but not available in the US), Harvey’s Nut Brown Ale, Woodeforde’s Norfolk Nog.
The description of "Malty-sweet, often with a rich, caramel or toffee-like character", sounds like it would really hit the spot with the cold months coming on. I am also hoping to understand the difference between the Southern and Northern versions of a brown ale so that I can develop a good recipe for one.
Thanks a lot,
