Review: Stevens Point Burly Brown Ale

Craft brewery Stevens Point released its latest addition to its lineup this month, Burly Brown, and American Brown Ale.

I’ve tried it a few times and, while it’s a perfectly serviceable brew, “Burly” is a bit of a misnomer. There’s a good slug of hops and a strongly nutty character here, but those looking for a knock-you-off-the-couch experience will be disappointed. In fact, Stevens Point notes that the recipe used — a hoppier version of the English brown ale — is often referred to as “mild ale.”

The flavors are clear, but the beer is quite easygoing. I’d actually recommend trying it when you’d otherwise reach for a pilsner but want something with a little more body to it.

5% alcohol by volume.
